Leo - Pointers in Need

About Pointer Leo

Sex: Male        Age: 5 years

Leo is in the UK, is 5 years old and has been neutered

Leo is now in Leicestershire in a foster home and looking for a forever home.

Leo is doing great. He’s absolutely obsessed with hunting for my cats….he would definitely be more suited to a non cat home.

He’s steadily loosing weight, he walks lovely on a figure of 8 lead, although he’s reactive to other dogs and whines on sight of them. If his focus isn’t broken quickly he will start to bark at them. Yet he’s no issue with my dogs at all.

Leo has a limp on his back legs and one is shorter then the other, this is due to an old break, he also has some pellets in his body.  Leo has been assessed and due to the age of the injury, the vet does not feel that the stress and discomfort of an operation would benefit Leo but has suggested to use glucosamine to make him feel comfy.

Leo is such a gorgeous gentle boy!! He’s quiet, but not in a shy way.  He does noticeably have quiet a limp, but it certainly does not stop him playing or being sociable with other dogs. He is not a fan of the cats and definitely cannot be trusted around the chickens! He likes his food!! He is beginning to realise his food is being served at regular meal times.  He is very strong on the lead, he will need an experienced handler to teach him not to pull.  He cannot jump into the car, not sure if that’s a confidence thing or because of the leg…

Leo is an adorable boy who has slotted into a busy family life so easily. He is housetrained and happily sleeps in his crate overnight or when he’s needs to be left alone. He is good with children, in his foster home the children are between 9-16 years old.  If you would like to know more his fosterer would be happy to discuss more..
