LEO THE BLIND PEKE
Leo came to us from a shelter after the owner was charged with cruelty. I know that charge can come for many reasons, but I can't imagine anyone hurting this little guy.
One of our members picked him up and brought him to her house on his first journey into our rescue group. She bathed him and brushed him ...
And he was worn out. :-) So, like all puppies, he took a nap.
Leo is ten months to a year old-- and sweet as they come.
He's not little though-- he's about 16 pounds. But, he's all puppy.
He's in a foster home-- THANK YOU JENNY!!-- in Maryland. He is an amazing dog. You see, Leo is blind. But, he can follow your footsteps in the grass. His hearing and smell are working extra and he uses those senses to get around.
Look at those teeth, and that beautiful face.
And look at the wind blowing his hair. He loves it.
"I know someone is walking by."
He still has the puppy hair on his head-- :-).
This is a wonderful boy-- and to really show you his personality, just watch these videos! If you're interested in more information about him, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
