pparks has it. RocketDock (free) and Object Dock (not free), along with RK Launcher (free).

Also look into the Stacks docklet for RocketDock & Objectdock.

RocketDock is better, having used all 3 before. It supports themes from Objectdock and RKLauncher.

Hi luckystar !
You can customize any dock to exact leopard dock's look, whatever the dock it may be. It needs time , patience and resources. But if you wand a ready-made leopard dock that is applicable in windows , download and install RK Launcher iVista Leopard - a handy and attractive application launcher. . There is some screenshots of it :
