Leo came into our lives when our family was struggling with the loss of my husband, my daughter's stepdad. Somehow, Leo knew what we needed. He knew that we needed comfort in our darkest moments. He knew we needed his gentle and kind soul to help us during our grief and that's exactly what he did, and what he's continuing to do even now. Leo was only 4 months old, sick, underweight, and was in the pound on the euthanized list before animal defense league took him in. He was adopted by us soon after. Leo is 100% mutt. He has American bully, German Shepard, husky, malamute, malinois, Dutch Shepard, and lab in him, making him the most unique and special dog I've ever seen. Everyone who's met him knows how energetic, silly, and kind he is towards everyone he encounters. He wants to play with everyone he meets, however, since he's big, most strangers think he's an aggressive dog, which couldn't be farther from the truth. I have never met a dog kinder than him. I've never met a dog who is so gentle and smart. All these reasons are why I think Leo should be SNIPSA's Face of the Race. He has helped us in ways I never could've imagined a dog could, and this is just another thing I know he'd be good at helping with because his story is all too similar to hundreds of rescue dogs.
