Hello, Friends! My name is George...and my foster mom says that I truly am a little prince! I was found wandering in the woods and was taken home by a good Samaritan who helped me find my way to SEGSP. I am a GSP/Hound mix. My markings are all GSP, my “bay” is 100% hound. So, I’m a little loud, but in a really cute way! I will be celebrating my FIRST birthday in June and I heard that there’s cake and gifts involved. I’m looking forward to it! I am a small boy around 50lbs, but the vet says that I might have a tiny bit more growing to do. She said that I am healthy, well behaved, and handsome.
I was excited to be put in the care of SEGSP because they brought me to my foster family, and I have learned so much while I’ve been here. I have learned that toys are SUPER fun!! Especially tennis balls and sticks. I love fetching! I also learned that walks are the most fun part of my day (besides bedtime snuggles!) and my foster dad says that I am such a good boy walking on the leash. I like to stay right beside him to feel safe.
I am a big fan of breakfast and dinner and do super well sharing a bit if my foster siblings come near me. I don’t mind! We can all share. I LOVE snacks and listen so well when I have to “sit” and “stay” for them. I have also learned a few other basic commands, like “down”. I seem to catch on pretty quickly. Since I’ve been here, I have been sleeping in my kennel every night and am fully kennel trained. It’s my safe space, so I enjoy it. I am also proud to say that I am fully potty trained! I love to make my people happy and have so much fun playing and learning new things. My foster mom loves that I don’t chew at all! When I’m not resting in my kennel, I LOVE the cozy cave bed! BIG FAN!
My foster family has a huge backyard, so my foster siblings and I love to run and run and run. I could run all day! This is why my foster dad thinks I’ll do best with a large backyard that is fully fenced! I still get a bit carried away and will try to escape the gate if it’s open. I’m a curious guy and I heard that there’s a bunny on the other side. I wouldn’t hurt her, but I would definitely run until I could get to her. My foster mom calls me her little escape artist. Now cats, not much experience with them, but when I met one once it didn’t go so well. So, a home without a cat would probably be best for me. I get along super well with my foster siblings, but sometimes I am the low man on the totem pole. I would be nice to be in a home with just one more dog or where I'm the only dog. I get along with everyone, but I do love to soak up the undivided attention. My foster mom says that I deserve it for being a little prince.
You want to know what else I have discovered while I’ve been here.. kids! Who knew kids were so much fun!! They play with you all day and love on you all evening. My ABSOLUTE favorite thing in the world to do is to snuggle with my foster family kiddos. I would truly love a home with children so I could continue to get in all those snuggles that I love so much. One of my foster kids is a teenage girl and she has me hooked on Disney movies. I love to snuggle on the couch with her and watch Fox and Hound… it does seem a bit familiar! I could sit for hours and have my belly and ears rubbed. I also love for the foster kids to carry me around. When I’m not snuggling with them, I am playing with them. I absolutely love to play and have A LOT of energy to get out. The foster kids make sure that I use all the energy each day. My tail never stops wagging when they are around. My foster mom says that I make her heart happy with how well adjusted and “at home” I quickly became.
I am still working on meeting new people. I am still a bit timid and unsure at first. My foster family is working on this and I am doing so well! Usually a couple barks to introduce myself and I’m good. I also still need some alone time every now and then when I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. Everyone needs a bit of quiet time now and again. I’m not a huge fan of loud noises.. the thing that blows balloons up.. NO THANK YOU! Don’t even get me started on those vacuum things. NOT A FAN! Also, keep in mind that I’m still a puppy so I will still need to learn some basic obedience and guidance on staying calm. (I get REALLY excited and jumpy when my people come home!) I’m just a young pup still learning the ropes. But I am eager to learn and show you how much I appreciate you! And let’s face it, I’ll do anything for a treat and a snuggle.
My Ideal home would be:
Because I'm fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, heartworm free and temperament tested puppy, my adoption fee is $375. I'm eager to meet my new forever family so that we can begin our next adventure together. If you think you are that family, you'll need to do two things: 1. Please fill out the adoption application (if you haven't already) and 2. Please email my foster mom, Natalie to let her know you're interested.
