Meet Leo the Lion and hear him roar! This extremely friendly 4 year old black, male Cocker Spaniel was brought to the Brooklyn shelter in absolute filthy, matted condition. In fact, Leo’s “mane” was so severely matted that the shelter shaved him down immediately. Once shaved, Leo’s amazing personality began to… well, roar! It turns out that he’s an incredibly sweet, calm boy who appears to be relaxed and enjoying life despite his vision problems. Poor Leo has a juvenile cataract in his left eye while his right has corneal scarring and is ulcerated. We do not yet know if the right eye can be saved, but we plan on bringing him to see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible for a full exam. If you would like to contribute to Leo’s vet care, you may do so via PayPal using our PayPal email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Like most lions, Leo has proven to be extremely affectionate and sometimes even a shy boy. This king of the jungle has been neutered, microchipped, is up to date on all shots, and has tested negative for heartworm. He will be treated to a professional grooming and will go home with a new leash and collar. If you would like to provide Leo with his very own lion’s den, please click here to fill out an online application or email email@example.com to request one. In the meantime, this sweet boy is waiting for a throne to call his own!
