Leo Messi Hawk Shepherd (Unknown Type) Adult Male in Provo, Utah

My story
Hi everyone!

My name is Leo.

Now you are probably wondering how someone as cute as me became an orphan.

Well someone picked me up after being dumped at a gas station and asked my foster to please help me.

Of course, when my foster met me, she said how could she resist and here I am waiting for my furever home.

The vet thinks I am around 10 months old and believes that I am possibly a Lab/Rottie mix but with rescue its always a guess.

I am a big clumsy goofball right now because I have not grown into my feet yet. I have a lot of energy as most pups do and I love to run and go to the park with my foster and foster siblings. I love all toys and do not really have a favorite, but my foster likes to freeze Kong fillers in the Kong bones to put in my crate with me when I am having quiet time.

I do well in my crate after I settle down because I still cry sometimes as first. My foster said it is because I am still a little scared, but it does not take long for me to get quiet.

I sleep in my crate at night and never have any accidents in there.

I am still being house trained and have had a couple of mishaps, but my foster says it was her fault because she got busy and that I am a good boy.

I really love to be outside, and I love the water.

I know how to use the steps to walk into the pool at my fosters house and hang out in the water and sun, so if you need a partner on your boat or in the pool; look no further.

I have a lot of lab qualities and my foster says that I need someone who will be consistent with my training since I am a big bundle of energy.

I have learned to sit and lay down.

I share toys and do not care if anyone messes with my food. I never chew on anything that is not given to me by my foster.

I love doggie jerky treats and that is how my foster gets my attention to focus when we are training, plus I follow what the older dogs do.

My foster says it is important for you to know that I take treats very gently from her hand and she loves that and always tells me thank you for being so sweet.

I will cuddle and watch tv with you after I have run out some of my energy. I am a smart boy and will make a great dog for either individuals or families.

I currently live with 3 grown dogs and another foster, and I play very well with them.

I am great with humans of all ages, and I am very socialized with animals and people.

I promise to be your best friend for the rest of my life.

Available for adoption to anywhere in the US. We transport near or into NV, MT, CO,UT, ID, OR, WA, Canada, and now the East Coast! Our PNW dogs are brought to you in style by a beautiful USDA licensed semi-truck, equipped with air conditioning for comfort, two drivers, and 2 onboard attendants providing 24 hour care. Our East Coast route will travel in a private, air conditioned 3LP-run van or bus transport. Pick up day is unforgettable! You will get to follow along on their journey through a private FB Event page, where you will see photos, have the opportunity to connect with other adopters, and receive updates and constant communication along the way. We can help to find the closest transport pick up location to you!

The adoption fee is $750 and includes all vetting per our veterinarian: DAPP (2 to 4 depending on age and time in the program), Bordetella, Rabies vaccine, multiple broad spectrum deworming treatments, spay/neuter surgery, flea prevention, 2-6 months of heartworm preventative according to age, heartworm testing and heartworm treatment if applicable, extended medical such as dentals, eye surgeries, and orthopedic surgeries prior to adoption when suggested by our partner vets, a microchip with free lifetime registration, a high quality nylon Martingale collar for dogs over 4 months old, a health certificate deeming the pup healthy for travel, cost of transport*, and many priceless years of love and loyal companionship!

*WE ARE TOLD THAT WE GO ABOVE AND BEYOND MEDICALLY. This is the feedback we tend to get, although we cannot guarantee perfect health.

*To fully vet a dog in the PNW at many vets it would be upwards of $1,800 just to fix, vaccinate, chip, etc. The adoption fees charged by our rescue do not cover our expenses medically for each animal, but we offset costs with donations. Your adoption fee is considered a donation towards actual costs.

Why adopt from Three Little Pitties?

The stray and animal overpopulation in the Greater Houston area is the highest in the nation. Statistics show that there are over 1 million homeless animals in this region alone. Three Little Pitties Rescue is a nonprofit dog and cat rescue that partners with the community to make a difference. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population through community outreach, free spay and neuter services, and saving all breeds of dogs and cats from the streets or animal shelters that oftentimes have no other option but to euthanize animals for space. This dog you’ve found online is lucky to be in our program, and even luckier to have you notice it!

Three Little Pitties wants to set you and your new pet up for success! We know our dogs and we work hard to prepare them socially for adoption. We are a network of dedicated people who are heavily invested in seeing our animals thrive. From the moment they are accepted into our program, our Intake, Behavior & Medical teams prepare them for adoption by properly vetting, behaviorally assessing, and providing customized plans depending on the dog’s needs. We provide weekly socialization programs for our dogs through playgroups and group leash training classes available to all dogs in our adoption program, and Doggy Sleepover, Doggy Day Out, and Ambassador programs for our boarding dogs. There is a professional dog trainer on staff to provide support for our fosters and dogs, and an off-site dog trainer for dogs that need more extensive behavior modification. This helps us learn deeply about every dog, prepare them for adoption, and ultimately match them with loving families. We seek to adopt to families who understand that these are rescue dogs and will require continued training efforts, but will be well on their way to being the best dogs that they can be!

It doesn’t stop there! Our adopters also receive these special perks:

• 30 day trial of pet insurance with Trupanion (must register within 24 hours of first vet appt.)
• A free private online dog training session with GoodPup plus low pricing for future sessions (approx $25 weekly for an 8 week course of one session per week)
• One free bonus toy in every BarkBox when signing up for their Super Chewer subscription plan
• 70% off of your first order of Fetch, a PNW based, organic fresh dog food loaf meal subscription plan
• Coupons for a fun visit to Petco

• Access to our exclusive FB Adopters page, where you can network for play dates, resources, and connect with other adopters that share their passion for their adopted pup!

We celebrated our 5 year anniversary this year! Through the combined efforts of all of our hardworking staff and volunteers, we have placed over 12,000 very lucky dogs and cats into amazing homes! By adopting from us, you save TWO lives! The pet you adopt, and you create an opportunity for another animal to be saved in that spot. Together, we can be heroes.
