Deana’s heart went out to this old senior dog that had given up on life after being given to a shelter. But what she discovered after she brought him home left her amazed.
Deana first saw Leo after he had been pulled from the shelter by Pittie Rescue. At the shelter, he got depressed and gave up on life. The white-faced dog had been labeled a senior and was passed up by all his would-be adơрters.
Leo seemed to know that no one wanted him and that his time was short. But thankfully, because the rеscuе didn’t want him to suffer the same fate as so many old dogs, they decided to try to find him a home.
That was when Deana met him for the first time and got to introduce him to her other dog, Kallie. Leo and Kallie got along great so soon Leo was on his way to his new life at his forever home.
Deana didn’t have Leo long before she learned that he wasn’t a senior after all. It was estimated that he was only about 5 years old and had probably been a backyard dog. Because of his past, he was a little worn out and didn’t know how to be a dog.
He also had some health problems. It was likе he was a middle-aged dog trapped in an older dog’s body. He needed knee surgery and had arthritis in all his legs because he didn’t get enough healthy food and exercise. But all of that is behind him now.
For instance, he doesn’t always understand what life inside is really likе. He loves his bed and couch but knowing what to do with toys was new to him. The average household sights and sounds were also new to him.
