Someone forgot to tell Leona she's a senior. Born in 2007, she has lots of energy and loves to go for walks (so long as they aren't mini marathons). Leona also loves people and gets excited to make new human friends. She has a knack for making everyone around her smile and laugh.

Leona can be reactive at barriers like fences and gates. She loves her doggie roommate at the Sanctuary, but is generally picky about her canine companions and cannot live with cats. Leona can't wait to meet her very best human friend and to share all of her happy, sunny days.
