Leo, Chocolate Labrador Retriever Male, 8 months old
April 3, 2018
Lucky Leo is a real happy go lucky boy. He has been getting along nicely with all of us. He has slept through his nights here , 10 hours plus and has had no accidents in the house. Leo is not fond of being crated when we leave, so we have given him free roam. He’s been a good boy and has not chewed any human things, only his cow hooves – (which he LOVES! ) Gating him when he is placed, is probably a better fit for him.
His forever home will need to continue with his training. I do believe moderate to experienced Lab owners are a good fit for Leo, as he is still young.
Get those applications ready !! The Handsome One is going to be available shortly.

Leo has been with us for 2 days. He is your textbook young Labrador Retriever. He was neutered three days ago, but don’t tell him that…he’s ready to run! High energy, but settles after exercise. Eager to please and LOVES fetch. He will bring a ball back to you and drop it to continue play. He has slept well at night and has had no accidents. He weighs now about 70-75 pounds and I think he’s going to grow upward’s of 100 at maturity.
Leo knows his name, NO!, and sit. We are working on him giving his paw. I have noticed that he has a tremendous sense of smell – better than my other three resident Labs. He likes to counter surf some, jumps a little (for affection), and could get mouthy (again for affection). We started to work on these, but once he finds his forever home, the lucky family that adopts him will continue Leo on his way.
I have included a video; Leo LOVES the pool too, and I think is going to be a swimmer.
Lastly, from what I have seen over 2 days – If you are looking up Labrador Retriever in the dictionary, – there would be a picture of Leo.

Meet Leo! Leo is a handsome 8 month old 70lb. chocolate lab who loves to play, play, play! Leo was being given away for free on a yard sale site in N. Philadelphia (YIKES) so we refer to him as Lucky Leo since he was fortunate to catch the eye of some dog lovers who ran to his rescue and reached out to Brookline for help.
Leo has been brought UTD on his vaccinations and is getting neutered and microchipped today so expect him to be available very soon.
Please check back for updates on his progress while he settles in his foster home.
