Leonard loves to play, especially during feeding time. When he’s not playing, he’s curled up for a good nap on a comfortable blanket.

He greets his family with immense joy and excitement when they return home.

Leonard never stops wagging his tail and has so much love to give to a family where he’ll be the center of attention as the only pet.
