Plenty of Pets

Leo is a five-year-old Lab-Pit mix who weighs 58 pounds.

He is described by his foster mom as a “sweet, loving and loyal cuddle muffin.” Although he can be a little shy at first, especially with men, he warms up quickly. While he's warming up, Leo may be a flight risk, so his ideal family is experienced and preferably has a fenced in yard.

Leo’s favourite activity is napping in the sun, especially when cuddled up to his people. He’s house, crate, and leash trained and can be left alone. He’s a very smart boy and is food motivated. He’s good with children, dogs, cats, and rabbits.



Leo is neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites, and microchipped. He has an allergy to fleas so his new family will have to make sure he is protected with flea prevention from the vet. He comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. His adoption fee is $350.

If you’re interested in learning more about adopting Leo, visit Coastal K9 Rescue Society on Facebook or on their website or email
