Are you looking to have a walking buddy as spring approaches? Consider starting your search for a pet at Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, which shelters pets in need.

One of the available pets is Leo, a dog who loves his routine of walks and relaxation. He wouldn't mind a belly rub in between either.

Here's a full description from Animal Welfare League of Alexandria:

Leo, Adult, Neutered Male, Black and White Pit Bull Terrier
Self-care guru Leo is ready to teach you all about how he keeps his stress down, even during the busiest day. Between meeting new people and smelling new smells, Leo has a lot on his plate, but he knows how to stay relaxed, especially with the help of his friends. He starts off with a long walk, pausing for every new smell and a few treats along the way, mindfully taking in every new thing and never being in a hurry. After a walk, Leo enjoys a little meditation: breathe in, breathe out, click, treat, relax. Leo's relaxation regimen works every time, and before he knows it, it's belly rub time and he can't stop smiling. Did you know giving a dog belly rubs helps reduce stress in people? Leo would be happy to show you. Just stop by to meet him at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria!

See Leo's adoption profile and information about the adoption process.
