My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

This handsome gentleman is Gatsby, and he is very eager for his very own family to love! Since coming into the rescue, this boy has mastered quite a few cues and has been practicing excellent indoor manners. Despite his size, Gatsby prefers to hang out with medium-size, female pooches who do not have over-the-top energy. When the weather is nice, he loves to run and wrestle with another female pup. This boy is so funny that, even when playing with his friends in the yard, he will always come over to "check-in" with his person before going off to have some more fun. When visitors come by, Gatsby is always happy to greet them and is eager to get some loving. For the most part, Gatsby is very calm and gentle; he is happy with just hanging out and watching the world goes by. This is a boy who very much prefers things to be predictable; once he is familiar with certain routines, he feels safe and settles comfortably. Gatsby will do well in a quiet home with an experienced handler who will work with him and help him prepare for unpredictable triggers that might startle him. Once you gain his trust, this boy will turn into your most affectionate and loyal companion!

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
