Leonberger - Carting

We usually have
dogs available for adoption throughout the country.

Please contact your regional representative for details.

Be sure to fill out an adoption application as soon as possible,
so you'll be ready when the right Leo for you comes into rescue!

A rescue dog is not just a cheap dog. Often, rescue dogs are wonderful pets caught in a bad situation at home: a job transfer to a location where the pet cannot be kept; a divorce where neither person can keep the dog; or a death. But just as often, a rescue dog is a problem dog. Many Leonbergers that come to LeoRescue have not been trained or socialized. In other cases, the dogs have medical conditions that require ongoing veterinary care. These dogs need owners who are able to spend the extra time and effort to meet their special needs.

While we will fully investigate each and every Leonberger available for adoption, please understand that we are unable to make any guarantees. Adoption donations vary. Young puppies are adopted with a s/n contract and refundable deposit. Other refundable deposits may apply in other cases. For additional information, please contact the regional representative nearest you.

If you are interested in giving a Rescue Leonberger a forever home, download the Adoption Application, complete it, and return it to Julie at ojulz@cox.net or to the mailing address listed on the application. You can also FAX it to our toll-free number (866-443-4542). Please understand that the questions on the form are not meant to be intrusive, but rather are designed to find the best match possible for the dog and new owner.

If you have any questions about the application or where to send it, please e-mail Julie.

The fee to adopt a Leonberger from LeoRescue is based on the age of the dog. This money goes straight back into the LeoRescue coffers, ready to pay for veterinary care, training, and various needs of other LeoRescue Leonbergers. Please ask one of our representatives for current adoption fees.

An online application is available here.
