Leo came to us due to a change in his owner’s circumstances. 
Leo is a friendly boy who likes to interact with people. He doesn’t enjoy being fussed by people on a first meeting but he’s not grumpy about it, he’ll move away if he doesn’t want to be stroked. Once he knows you, he’s very affectionate and will dish out the Staffy snogs! 
He loves playing with his toys, especially balls, and likes you to hold his toys whilst he has a chomp on them, he’ll even try to put them in your mouth if you’re friends! 
He absolutely loves his food and is super treat motivated. 
Leo is currently having relatively short walks due to an issue with his leg. Our vets have said currently he can do around 15-20 minutes several times a day but in the future, the length of his walks should be able to be increased. 
He walks well on the lead without pulling and enjoys having a good sniff. 
He can be reactive to other dogs - we’ve found he’s generally easily distracted with treats, but he would need space away from other dogs on walks. 
Leo travels well. He’s been to the vets in the back of our van and settled down quickly. We’ve been told that he even travelled on the train and bus in his previous home. 
Leo has been seen by our vets for a check-up. He was well behaved for his examination, especially as he had lots of treats to distract him. He did become a little more worried about his blood draw so we muzzled him just as a precaution, but he was very well behaved on the whole. 
He was good in the waiting room and only reacted to a dog when it came quite close to him. 
Leo is in good health. 
He had spinal surgery a few months ago and has recovered well. He will need to continue to avoid any repetitive ball chasing/lots of running around in the future though. 
He does have a bit of a strange gait with one of his back legs, so we’ve started him on an anti-inflammatory (loxicom) to try and help him feel more comfortable. As mentioned above, his walks are being restricted due to this but in the future, he should be able to walk for longer. 
Ideal home: 
Leo can’t live with other dogs, but has previously happily lived with a cat so we would place him with a dog-savvy cat. 
Due to him being quite mouthy when excited, and as he doesn’t always enjoy being stroked, we would prefer any children to be older teenagers. 
He can be left for short periods (up to 4 hours at a time) once he’s settled in. 
Standard information: 
Leo is fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. 
He is currently in our Stoke-On-Trent kennels, but he can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet him at least twice where he is now. 
There is a non refundable adoption donation of £120 for Leo and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
