Leo, Doberman pinscher and Labrador retriever mix
Leo is a male Doberman pinscher and Labrador retriever mix currently residing at Needy Paws Rescue.
Leo loves other dogs. He's been vaccinated and neutered. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.
Notes from Leo's caretakers:
Leo is good with older kids and has a low to medium energy level. He does not need to be crated. He walks pretty good on leash and rides well in the car. Leo is very shy and scared at first, but will warm up to you. He will follow you like a shadow. He always wants to be near you. Leo will do best with older couple that is home a lot. He is a very good boy!

Jugg will get along great with your other dogs. Jugg is already neutered, and he has had all his shots. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.
Notes from Jugg's caretakers:
Jugg is working on house training and could be apartment-qualified with the proper amount of exercise. Jugg is a short, stout fellow. He's learning to love lots of attention, people and dogs. He's treat motived and does well in his crate. He corrects well, is a people pleaser and has made such positive strides in just three weeks. He would do best with someone who has experience with the Rottweiler breed.
