I work for a grooming shop/pet boutique, and a girl made an appointment today for her Toy Leo. I remember reading a post about toy leos before on here but couldn't find it. I know that a toy leo is some kind of mix given its own "breed" name but I'm wondering what exactly it is a mix of. I can't find any info on it - even on dogbreedinfo.com which seems to have every mix out there. I wanted to tell the groomers what the mix really was so they would know what to expect when it come in on Monday - plus I didn't want to offend the customer by asking what her Toy Leo was a mix of because I'm sure she thinks it's a real breed. So if any of you know what a toy leo actually is, please let me know.
I've seen 'toi leos' in petstores that were nothing more than a pom in a lion cut. Technically they are trademarked dogs and can only be sold by a few people due to the uh *cough* copyright.. So you likely will never get the true mix in there told to you.
Well Now..I can tell my cousin she can call her Chi/peke mix that she has a toi Leo! Because hers looks just like those! Dang, give a mutt a fancy name and people really think they got something special.
Maybe since Duchess is Am.Pit mixed with Am. bull I can callher a Grande Diana.(which translates Big Bull in Spanish!, Boy I'm just full of BS tonight!Ha!)
I am sorry... but that dog on Dogster (the first picture I have seen of a Toy Leo) is not very cute.....what in the wolrd is the point of shaving the back of its body like that? Such a beautiful face and then you see the back.....WHY OH WHY?
Someone posted a cat shaved like that on here one time and I thought it was a HOOT! I shaved Nap like that one time and the boys would run round the house letting him chase them while screaming..."A LIONS AFTER ME!"lol Funny that its a "pure bred" (cough,cough) but some look like pekes and some look like poms. Looks like a peke/pom mix if I ever saw one.
i see ... do these ppl that get these dogs really think they are pure bred dogs? the link that was posted shows the persons dogster page and it says purebred.. I think the hair cut is pretty silly either way...
