Hi, I am Gordo, but after some time with my foster, he decided the name Benny was a much better fit. I am about 2 1/2 years old. Somehow, I got lost and ended up at a shelter. Fortunately, I was saved by the rescue, and they found a foster home for me.
My foster dad says I am just a lover. I love all people, dogs, don't even mind cats, and if I could I would give them all a hug. I know basic commands, love to get outside and RUN, and when I get winded, I'm so content just laying down to bask in the sunlight. I'm decent on a leash, but tend to pull a bit, because I'm just so curious about my surroundings.
You can probably tell by my pictures that I may be the most handsome dog in the world, and I also have the demeanor of a super sweet gentleman. I don't give kisses, but have plenty of other ways to show you how much I appreciate you loving me and taking care of me. I crave attention, and my tail is always wagging, but I can also sense when you are busy, and love to play with my toys on my own until you're free to play with me :-)
I'm crate trained, and don't mind spending the night in it as long as it is super comfy and has a toy/bone to chew on, but I so much rather sleep in the bed with my foster dad, because I give the best snuggles ever!
My ideal forever home would definitely need a large yard with room to run, explore, and defend from any trespassing squirrels. I would also love to have another pup to play with, and older kids would be great to keep me busy.
If you're the one for me, please complete an adoption application, if you haven't already. I am up to date on all vaccines, neutered, microchipped, heart work negative and all my blood work is great! My adoption fee is $375. We can't wait to hear from you!
