THE Daily News Pet of the Week is Leonardo, a 1-to-2-year-old pit-bull mix at the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society.

Leonardo (right) is sensitive, sweet and a little shy at first. He's a bit overwhelmed in the shelter environment and would shine with someone who can help him build confidence.

To adopt Leonardo, contact PAWS at or 215-298-9680, ext. 16, before visiting the shelter at 2nd and Arch streets, Old City.

When inquiring, provide his tag identifier, A22228692-Clinic. A $150 fee includes sterilization, vaccines and microchipping.
