Lovely Leo here and I am ready for you to bring me home. As a 60 pound lap dog I am the prefect addition to any home that is ready for a rough and tumble pup. I am only one year old so of course, I have energy for days. I love working off some of the excitement off through training and trips out and about with my human. You'll know I am excited when my wrinkles get extra wrinkly and my tail gets extra waggy and my mouth gets extra smiley.
I have a classic pitty head, big and full of love, and I can not wait to show you how perfect I am. I even venture to say I may be the smartest boy at the SPCA. Right now, I am working on training with the Behavior team and boy, have I blown all expectations out of the water. I would love to show you how smart I am, email behavior@pspca.org to stop by and see me!

Leo is a member of our Arousal Management and Treatment program which was developed to help dogs who may have arousal or reactivity behavior challenges. Often these dogs are young, very smart, and easily excited by life around them; many of them did not get much training when they were young and need help with their adult doggy manners. The Arousal Program is a focused training protocol designed to help them get adopted sooner and then transition smoothly into their new lives with their fur-ever family. These dogs participate in a documented training plan aimed at providing them with basic manners as well as useful skills such as place training and crate training. The best part? The dogs think we're playing games and they love winning! Adopters of a dog participating in the Arousal Program will benefit from three pre-adoption training sessions designed to show you how their training program works and how you can continue that training at home. They will also benefit from three post-adoption training sessions (via video chat) to ensure that their new pup is settling in and continuing to build on their skills.
