Leonardo is almost 2 years old. Always open to new friendships, Leonardo will bravely welcome any four-legged that walks through the door, be it canine or feline. He knows no enemies, as he makes sure all the new orphans at ARF are accepted and safe. A sleek, short-haired gray, Leonardo, along with his siblings, lost his mom shortly after birth. One by one, his brothers were all adopted. He chose to pass it on, as Mr. Mom to Dawn and Dusk, who also lost their mom and were living under a house. Leonard is a one-of-a kind furry friend who is at his best consoling and loving other cats and dogs.
