Meet Leo, first in an occasional series of Boho Babes Dog of the Month where Doggy Boho, in conjuction with Madaboutgreys, are helping to highlight some very special rescue dogs who are waiting for a home through our Blogs and Face Book pages in the hope that they will find a new and lasting forever home.
Leo is a neutered male, rough-coated Lurcher. He is 18 months – 2 years old and 25 inches to the shoulder. He came came to Lurcher SOS with severe trauma to his eye, he was in terrible pain and had no sight in the effected eye. On advice from their vet, the eye was removed in mid November and Leo has gone from strength to strength. Leo’s foster Mum says: “Leo is just about perfect. He is clean in the house, quiet and non destructive. He is great with all the other dogs and loves people, he is affectionate but not pushy. He is happy, enjoys a game and likes a snooze on the sofa too. Leo is a pleasure to live with and will make a wonderful new member for one lucky family.” Leo can be an only dog or live with other dogs, he can live with children over 6.
To register an interest in Leo, please fill in the Lurcher SOS pre-adoption questionnaire at www.lurchersos.org.uk/page9.htm
Leo enjoyed a special day of pampering with a grooming session paid for by a kind supporter on Twitter, a madaboutgreys photoshoot, modelling some stylish neckwear by Doggy Boho, and walk in Richmond Park with his own bacon butty prepared by the famous Oscar at Pen Ponds Cafe. Leo is quoted as saying “I could get used to this”.
