If you’ve ever wanted a pet lion, then the Leonberger is about as close as you can get. At least in looks. Bred to resemble the king of the jungle, Leonbergers even boast a fluffy mane.
But in temperament, this pup is anything but ferocious.
In fact, the Leonberger is a sensitive breed that becomes distressed when his owners are feeling under the weather.
In other words, the Leonberger has a huge heart – befitting of his massive size. Despite his stature, Mr. Leonberger is gentle and loving.
So much so that he makes an excellent therapy dog!
