You are probably wondering where the name for this dog came from. If you are movie buffs like we are, you might recognize the correlation to the 1997 Bruce Willis movie, 'The Fifth Element'. The premise of the sci-fi movie is that the planet was protected by a weapon using the four classic elements (water, fire, earth and wind) to defeat alien invaders. They discover the weapon doesn't work without the Fifth Element, which is love. The female lead, played by Milla Jovovich, is revealed to be the "Perfect Being" named Leeloo who is representative of the ability to love, in spite of humanity's flaws. When love is combined with the elements of nature all can be conquered.
The canine Leeloo was the perfect match for her owner Sydney Lieffort and she hasn't failed to live up to her name yet.
Water--the element that gives Leeloo her confidence. She shows no hesitation or fear in new bodies of water...just excitement and wonder.
Fire--the spark in Leeloo's eye when she's working or playing, it's her immense work ethic--the fire in her belly.
Earth--The foundation of breeding and training are the core assets that make Leeloo an elite hunting dog.
Wind--The element of nature that helps Leeloo use her talents to their fullest.
Love--It's Leeloo's love for Sydney and to work that make this team a perfect one.
