A blind and deaf senior rescue dog, whose name is Leo Dicaprio, has just been gifted a brand new custom home — so he can live out his final days in comfort on this year’s Valentine’s Day!
The small mixed breed dog, who was named after the Oscar-winning actor, was gifted the tiny house at the Reversed Rescue facilities in California — which is designed to allow him to live out his days in a hospice type environment. The lucky pooch will receive round the clock treatment from volunteers and will get to lounge in the 120 sq. ft. home all to himself.

The home is designed specifically for 1 senior hospice pup and a caring volunteer.
Charity organization, iHeartDogs.com, has been working since the beginning of January to raise funds to make this dream possible.
As for his unique name, the doggie was named after the famous actor because of his work with saving animals and helping others.
We’re told Alex Rose Wiesel and Songland winner Greg Scott both helped on the backend to raise funds through their networks for the give-back as well.

Marshall Morris, CEO of iHeartDogs, tells The Blast, “Many senior dogs like Leonardo DiCaprio are abandoned all too often due to their ailing health… Just when they need love the most, many of these precious older pups are dumped at the door of a shelter. They are confused and lonely. Many are sadly euthanized.”
Several other celebrities have joined the fight to ensure senior ailing rescue dogs have a comfortable end to their lives, including ‘KISS’ frontman Gene Simmons who has helped iHeartDogs.com save dogs in the past.
