As a young dog, Leon survived on his own for several months until the dog warden finally captured him in a humane trap and brought him to TriCounty Animal Rescue Center. Leon has been with us about a year now, and is about 2 years old. Leon has a deformed rear foot and he sometimes favors it in the yard, holding it up while he walks or plays, but it does not slow him down at all. With those he knows and trusts, Leon is an absolute gentleman, taking treats gently from our hands, letting us hug his head and stroke him, fetching his ball for us and coming when called, lying quietly in his kennel, listening to our voices while we feed and mop. With those he does not know, however, Leon is loud, boisterous, and jumpy; he pretends to be a lion that needs to be tamed. What Leon needs is simply “time to trust.” If you are someone who understands the value of a diamond in the rough, if you enjoy restoring living things, if you have the time to visit Leon regularly, to gain his trust, and develop a relationship with him, then you will be richly rewarded with the love and devotion of a very good, handsome, smart, and playful dog. Let us hear from you: Please contact Tri-County Animal Rescue Center on Facebook, or call 814-918-2032, or email: contactus@Tricounty-arc.org
PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers who work with our dogs are not always at the rescue center during public hours. Please make an appointment if you wish to be able to take a dog out of its kennel. Thank you!
