Katie New houser befriended a pit bull named Leo and his mom, Tina Rummel, while on her route as a UPS driver.
They bonded over the years and came to be very close, but one day disaster struck. Tina died, and this left Leo all alone. Tina’s son was away on active Marine responsibility, and there weren’t lots of options. But Leo knew precisely what he wanted.
Leo almost begged to be taken in by Katie! He ‘d hop right into her truck and refuse to leave. So Katie decided to foster him until the son got back from duty. Leo is so friendly and carefree that he got along with all of the other dogs in Katie’s home.
This bond grew into something that could not be broken, and Katie knew she had to maintain Leo! She adopted him and provided him the home he was worthy of– and the one he truly wished when his owner died.
