Leon

5 to 6 years old. Gray. Tibetan Terrier mix. In Ancient Egypt, lions were venerated for their strength, courage, and stateliness. No wonder then that Leon, meaning ‘lion’, denotes someone with incredible strength and courage. Given the resilience of shelter dogs, it seemed only fitting that we name this handsome fellow Leon. He is a striking creature despite his shaggy matted coat. He loves surveying his territory on long walks and is quick to welcome other dogs to join him. Leon is confident albeit a bit cautious when first meeting new people. He knows good people when he meets them, however, and soon surrenders to their kindness and love. At almost 17 pounds, Leon is neutered, microchipped, and current on all vaccines. More importantly, he hopes he’ll soon find a new Pride where he can reign supreme as ‘King of the Jungle.’
