Description:
Leo the Lionhearted!  What is the definition of Lionhearted? It means extraordinarily courageous. Synonyms: brave, courageous. possessing or displaying courage; able to face and deal with danger or fear without flinching. That certainly describes Leo.  We pulled him from the Livingston Parish Animal Shelter after he lost a leg and an eye when he was hit by a car.  His owner relinquished him to animal control, possibly because of the expense for his surgeries and care.  Not only does the fact he is now a one-eyed tripod NOT affect his courageous lion-like personality, but we have discovered that this was likely not the first time he was hit by a car.  He has broken bones from a previous injury that had not been treated.  And yet he was STILL chasing cars.  He also has "little man syndrome" as he does not back down from a bigger dog.  Well Im here to tell you, Leo, be as brave and courageous as you want to be but from now on, you will have a human who will be your protector.  We will see to that.  Leo is 4 yrs old, 10 lbs., neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm negative.  Good vet history, a securely fenced yard and a live or virtual home visit is required for approval.
