Hi I'm Gizmo!  I'm a handsome boy who is just sweet as can be!  I can be a bit shy with new people, but give me some scratches and belly rubs and we'll soon be besties! Most of the time I'm a pretty chill guy.  I like to watch the goings on in my home and will follow my foster mama around while I explore.  I have the softest fur that you won't be able to resist running your fingers through. My happy smile will make you smile back. You won't be able to help yourself!  I'm learning about all the doggie basics in home right now.  Toys and bones seem cool.  I'm sure I'll be playing with them like a pro soon.  Potty training is going well and I've got the kennel training mastered. I do great with all dogs.  I haven't met any kids or kitties, but my foster mama thinks I'd be fine with both since I'm pretty go with the flow. I do require some eye meds each day which is pretty typical for my breed and dry eye.  Don't worry I'm a pro at getting them too.  I hold still so you can put them in and then I can go about my day again haha! I haven't had a lot of leash walking experience yet, but I know I'll be a great at it with some more practice.  I'll keep practicing while I wait for you to find me and take me home forever.

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
