Our interest in Leonbergers began after the loss of our Scooby Do. He was a Chow/Sheltie mix with a lot of courage and a huge heart...for his family at least.
I'd decided that I wanted a breed that could be protective and yet friendly to our visitors also.
I'd searched on the internet trying to find the right breed for us. I'd even wanted an English Bulldog for and entire day! But nothing seemed to fit our needs. We have an amazing cat and I didn't want her to be harmed. I needed a dog who could accept and protect her for she was very affectionate to our Scooby.
When I'd found this breed my husband wasn't ready...a year later he saw a dog program, which showed two rescued Leonbergers...who in turn rescued their owner. My husband was facinated and allowed me to persue adoption...
One of those puppies above was our Porschea from the "P" litter with Sondra Boos.
Sondra has been supportive and available when I've had questions. She still forwards emails with photos and information from other owners about their leonberger's acheivements! She adds the personal touch and she is dedicated to excellent breeding practices. She is a trusted breeder who is making these beatiful dogs stronger.
I wanted to begin this blog with a thank you to Sondra!
Our Porschea has inspired us, challenged us, and entertained us. This breed isn't for everyone...no breed is. But this is a beautiful and loving breed which has won our hearts over
and over again!
