Don't let the name or breed description fool you. Taking after his predecessor, Rodeo, Drogo's unflappable nature and big heart make him an excellent puppy whisperer. Always happy to romp about and be tumbled over by the more excitable dogs in our care he's not afraid to let them know when enough is enough with a thunderous bark.

Pit-Boxer Dog - While his actual breed is unknown, based on his mannerisms and coloring, our best guess is that Leo is a Pit-Boxer mix.
His journey to becoming a member of our pack was full of trials and challenges. Still, through it all, the softest part of Leo shone through - his giant heart. He LOVES his big and little brothers more than anything. And is a world-class wrestler and quick as a gazelle in the yard.
He's learning more and more how to work with the pack, trust other dogs, and strange humans, while following the trusted guidance of his leader, Mark Dunlap.
