Leo's Story :Leo had lost his freedoms since a baby appeared. He has become snappy and he is now separated within the house to avoid contact with the crawling baby : Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place. Leo is neutered; chipped and vaccinated. Always been loved and well cared for. His photos say it all His traits are that of the Fell terrier and needs a family who can appreciate him for the lovely character he is if not grumpy on occasions. Leo lives on the West Coast of Scotland.
"Leo is largely a very lovely well behaved dog. Will bark at noises, and guard a little but intensified since baby has arrived. He does enjoy his walks. He is more controlled with a ball as enticement. He loves big sticks and rocks (unfortunately!) he LOVES swimming and very good at it! He has no interest in other dogs. He would rather not have to meet them. Happily ignores unless they come to him (or bark at him). Consequently, he has snapped at other dogs because he does not want to play with them. He likes to try and dominate all spaniels.
Leo loves cuddles and playing with a ball. Feel he craves top dog attention and therefore only one dog home and no children.
He has shown great care and contention with our son but now has sent a couple warning shots. Firstly, baring teeth and recently snapping on hand- not breaking skin. He is a lovely natured dog." Leo needs a quiet life without children and other dogs ALL FOR YOU!
PLEASE NOTE: Dog laws have changed with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters for at least 4 months until sure of their dogs instincts & skills, some need to be retained always on a lead, so as not to place dog's lives at risk, (Destruction or Control Orders are common place nowadays).
