A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I knew I was going to love Leona when I spotted her in her kennel. While at her door, she acted a little shy but somehow, I felt that there was a lot of hidden fun in her gaze and she looked so beautiful. Leash free in the yard, at first timid, a ball game, a chase lifted away all her worries. A big smile appeared on her face, she was all relaxed, sat on command, so obediently , took my treats, gently and behaved like she was my own dog, confident, happy, playful and very friendly. Leona won me over. I would so spend an entire day with her. She is a gorgeous gal, may be part Akita, dressed in a luxurious grey brindle coat, so soft. Her smile is always present once you are friends(which does not take much time) and her eyes reflects her thoughts:” Lets have fun, lets enjoy life together. You are the one i was dreaming of…” This was Leona talking ! So, what are you waiting for? Come and meet this young beauty at the Manhattan Care Center! Leona so wants be your forever best friend!

ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Leona so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
