Katie Newhouser is a UPS driver in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Whenever she would pull up to the apartment complex Leo lived in, he would greet her and jump in her truck. And when she found out that Leo’s mom died, she volunteered to foster him, but he became so bonded with his new brother that she decided to make the arrangement permanent!
“I met Leo and his mom Tina on my route – they lived in condo complex that I deliver to,” Katie told Life With Dogs. “He would always bark for her to let him come down to the truck to see me. He would hop into my truck and make himself at home!”
“He realized that Leo had bonded with my dog Moose and he couldn’t go back to being a single dog.”
In addition to Moose, Leo now has three other siblings: a terrier mix named Bailey, and two cats, Madison and Mocha. Though Leo has adjusted very well to his new family, it was clear that in the beginning he really missed his mom.
“He love to snag things off of the counter and have you chase him,” Katie said. “He is a character! He really is the best dog.”
