Default Met a rare breed!

I got to meet a leonberger yesterday night at the movie theater! Very nice dog!

It was a rescue. The old family imported it from Germany and they couldn't keep it cause it got "too big" Who would've guess right? lol So this lady got the guy from a rescue.

Anyways, the dog was sooo sweet! And very calm and quiet! He was in training to be a service dog and the theaters was one of his tests. Apparently he was doing very well and had passed all the other tests so far.

I was seriously impressed with this dog! He was soooooo sweet! lol

Actually I think this may be him!

Harley/Marley. I *think* that may be him! The lady looked like the one in the pic and I think the dog was that one, but I'm not positive.

Odd, I was just talking with my sister about this breed the other day...

The puppies really look a lot like GSD's to someone who doesn't know eathier breed...


Cool you got to meet one, I wonder how the Movie Theater test ended?

It ended well from what I saw/heard. We saw the same movie, "I am Legend," and I didn't hear a peep from him! Even though there where clips of other dogs barking and loud noises etc.

I know! It was really neat to see him! At first when I saw him from a distance I thought it was just a shepherd mix, but then as I got close I knew it wasn't a shepherd mix! I couldn't remember the name of the breed at first so I asked and when they told me I was like "OH YEAh! that's it!" lol

Awesome! My old boss' neighbor has one. When I first met her I thought she was a gsd mix too. She is a super nice dog.

I've met several at dog shows and just love them. They are so big, fluffy and cuddly.
