Every so often, you meet your match. Meet Leonidas (named after King Leonidas of Sparta), or Leo for short. Leo was adopted in February of 2016 by his perfect match, a man named Sam. Sam was in a rough spot in life and quite frankly, so was Leo. Both had anxiety, Leo was looking for a home and Sam was looking for a companion.
Previously, Leo was found in an alley, malnourished, fighting Parvovirus and worms. He was taken to a high kill shelter and was then rescued by @jrspupsnstuff. One month later, on Sam's 25th birthday, Leo met his match.
The struggles from Leo's past have left him with some permanent damage. His malnutrition and fight against Parvo at a young age kept his eye sight from fully maturing, leading to the development of cataracts and an inability to see far away. Although he can only see close up, his future is bright. Leo and Sam are currently living life to the fullest, spending much of their time exploring nearby dog parks and being the support that each of them needed.
Please don't forget, animals need us just as much as we need them.
