Leo’s behavioral and medical history strongly suggests a lifetime of outdoor captivity. After being rescued twice, his owner chose not to retrieve ‘his property.’
And so, it is the case for many rural dogs that find themselves chained or confined with only minimal regard for health, let alone life.
Leo is a voracious chewer (Kong has no chance). The erosion of his teeth to the gum line is often associated with chewing on chains. Chains no more, Leo loves nothing more than a relaxing chomp into a bully stick.
Today, Leo is healthy after two encounters with heartworm. Living at The Ranch with all the comforts of home is undoubtedly the highlight of his nine-year life journey. Your sponsorship helps with his emotional rehabilitation and, of course, his bully sticks😊
