I am Mr. Gerald or Gerry as some of my friends call me. I am about 9 years young. I am one of the sweetest and happiest pups you will ever meet and I live to please! Every morning I greet my foster mom with kisses and love. At night, I like to curl up next to her on the couch. I had no idea life could be this good! You could call me a velcro dog, because I sure do like to say next to my hooman's side.
Ideally, I would love a family/owner who can spend a lot of time with me. I am not a fan of being alone for long periods of time and will bark or cry and sometimes have accidents, particularly if I'm in a crate. I'm not a fan of those either. I just love my people so much!
When I take a break from showing the my hoomans love, I enjoy walks and do very well. I simply love my walks! I really like to greet people along the way, too. I am now a neighborhood favorite among the kids who live near me. They pet me and I show them how patient I am with every person I meet.
I enjoy sleeping under my foster mom's desk during the day when she works. And if you have a bully stick or “cookies” from Natural Balance (they are my favorite!) to spare, I would love that! I have learned the commands down, wait and I know to go outside when instructed.
I am working really hard on my potty training and am making progress. I am still learning, so I wear a belly band when I'm alone at home or at night. This is a little band that goes around my waist that collects my potty accidents. Oops!
I do love to be around other dogs when I’m out and about, but when another dog is on my home turf I can be protective. My foster mom is helping me work on being more at ease in those situations.
I am such a sweet boy looking for a home that will love me unconditionally and give me a good life. In return, I will give you enough love that you will cherish for a lifetime!
Many of our dogs are rescued from commercial breeders where they spent their lives getting comfort from their canine friends. In turn, most require another companion dog in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog, and do not currently have a dog residing with you, please understand that your home might not be the right fit for many of our dogs.
