This little guy is as cute as they come, but he thinks he's a large dog. Leo will need a strong leader, someone who knows how to handle a dog who thinks he's the boss. I don't think Leo will have any trouble turning over he reins, no one has ever requested he do so. Once he has a strong leadership role in his life I believe he will be fine. Leo would probably do best as the only pet in the household and any children need to be at least teenagers. He will need daily exercise and a normal routine. Leo is house-trained and is currently living with other dogs and cats, but to give him the chance to be the best he can be, we think being an only pet will help him thrive. With the right person and environment, Leo will make a wonderful companion.
