BREED: Border Collie mix
DOB: November 17, 2018
WEIGHT: 22 lbs
COLOR: Black and Tan
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Puppy
LOCATION: Richmond, VA
Leonardo was from a litter of seven brought into the rescue together. The border collie in the background of one image is said to be the dad and the black and tan one is said to be the mom. I am somewhat questioning these origins only because these puppies are big and solid. Both Leo and Raffie are being fostered together. They are very sweet with people and love pets. They get along with the two male border collies at their foster home.
Although it's hard to tell their true personality at this age, Leo seems a little unsure of himself in situations with lots of dogs playing together. He will need socialization and someone who can slowly build his confidence within a large dog pack. When it's quiet with a group of dogs at home he is very easy going.
They have a voracious appetite and are fairly strong already. They will need training early since it seems they will be on the large size as adults. They ride well in the car and are adjusting to being left in their crate at night. After a small crying session they settle down for the the night.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
Leo's adoption is pending.
