BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- A 2-year-old mixed breed described as playful, friendly and "very smart," has been named the SPCA of Westchester's Pet of the Week.
Leon, a shepherd/lab/hound mix, gets along well with other dogs, but is sometimes afraid of dogs bigger than him, according to the SPCA, which said those dogs "would be pretty big dogs, since (Leon) is a tall drink of water" who weighs 73 pounds.
Despite his large size, Leon would likely make a great playmate for children ages 8 and up, according to the SPCA.
To learn more about Leon or to schedule a meeting with him or any of the other animals up for adoption at the SPCA of Westchester, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
