Leroy had a rough go before being surrendered to the shelter, so watching Leroy solve life's challenges is a special joy. Thirsty on his morning jog? No need to stop; he just leans over and scoops refreshing dew off the grass. Nervous about the water in the play yard pool, but really wants to cool off? Splashes through it at full speed until he's dripping wet. Wondering how to get his human friend to play with him? Grab his hat and head for that pool.

Leroy is a young, playful, energetic dog and thrives in his outings to greenbelts, parks, UT, and even a dog-friendly restaurant patio on a slow day. At home, Leroy likes to play tug, do puzzles and is learning to entertain himself with stuffies and chewables. Leroy has been working hard on his social skills and now has a blast playing with calm, confident dog buddies who enjoy his exuberant, but respectful play style.

Leroy needs a little time and space to be comfortable with someone new but is always making new friends at the shelter. He has spent two weeks at a quiet adult-only home and keeps getting invited back. He met four new friends there and spends hours hanging out with them, including dinner time. Leroy is house-trained and well behaved around food. He is fine left alone for several hours in a comfy bedroom and has been easy to keep separate from the resident dogs.

You can follow Leroy's adventures on his own Instagram profile: @leroy.goodboy.atx . Come visit this sweet, sensitive, fun and very handsome guy!
