Linus is happy and gorgeous, loves to run and play, and needs help with his adult manners.  He grew to be this gorgeous without learning to walk politely on leash or channeling puppy energy into calmer introductions.  Linus is an active, neutered, housebroken 6 year old Leonberger weighing approximately150 pounds.

LeoRescuePals wants to place Linus with someone who will have fun playing games with him, attending training classes, and socializing him with friends and dogs. We are looking for a family who will help him grow into his best Leo self.  Currently, in the Chicago area, Linus can travel. Physical fencing required.

 Update 3/16 - 

Linus is starting to settle in with a new play partner and is loving life !!

(He is the one sleeping on the kitchen floor recovering!!)
