CFO (Chief Fun Officer)
Leo is a german shepard and hound mix and extremely friendly; we know you’ll love him. Leo is excellent at his job. He makes sure everyone knows when it’s time to stop working. If you try to work past 5pm, you will get a nose under your elbow which means it’s time to stop typing at the keyboard. Afternoon play is a requirement and tug and catch are the preferred form of entertainment. If you really want to impress Leo and get on his good side, his absolute favorite treat is a molasses cookie.
In 2007, Tiffany was volunteering at the Wisconsin Humane Society washing dogs, walking dogs, and helping out around the facility. One day, a small scared puppy came in to be washed and unlike the other dogs that wiggled and splashed, tried to get away, and clawed at everything in the wash tub, Leo sat quietly and let Tiffany clean him up. Tiffany went home and exclaimed “He’s The One!”, and Leo was adopted and became a member of the family the next day.
