Leon is one year old and looks like he is mixed with Boxer. He would love is own family or he could make great dog for one owner as well. He seems to be a very loyal dog and loves affection. He is a leaner--likes to lean against your leg when he sits. Leon is playful and has lots of personality. He is very friendly and loves to play fetch. Leon is good with other dogs too.

Leon would make great family pet. He comes with a FREE basic survival kit from Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital valued at $100!

Wes calls it the "peace of mind package." This kit includes everything that is not performed when he is sent to the vet to be neutered. That means any vaccinations he needs, testing for worms, one month’s treatment for fleas and heart worms and so much more.

Each week we feature a dog from the animal shelter in Texarkana on our Morning Show. We share the blog on our Facebook page in hopes that others will do the same. There are thousands of dogs that are euthanized every year in our shelter in Texarkana. We hope to make a difference by spreading the word.

The shelter's adoption fees range from $40 to $144, depending on the gender and size of the animal or whether they have been spayed or neutered yet.

You can also have your pet micro-chipped for only $20 right at the shelter! That way if your pet is ever lost, he can be returned to you quickly.

The Animal Care and Adoption Center is located at 203 Harrison St., Texarkana, Ark. 71854 and is open Monday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital sponsors our weekly pet. To contact PGAH, call 903-838-6565 or visit them online. Your free basic survival kit, in addition to all of the vaccinations, tests and treatments, will give you the opportunity to discuss the best ways to keep your new pet on the right track.
