Introducing Georgie, an adorable dog. Georgie currently lives in a foster home without other dogs, but he is always interested in other dogs while on his walks. He'll sniff them and then wants to continue with his walk, so Georgie may be fine in a home with other dogs. He doesn't live with children, but he lives with cats and does fine with them.

Georgie is working on being left alone in the home. He will whine if left on his own, but his fosters are working on his ability to stay on his own. He is not destructive and does not have any accidents in the home while you are gone. He always waits to go outside.

Georgie had an injured leg, but that doesn't keep him down. Georgie is on the APA's surgery list to amputate his left front leg. But don't let that fool you, Georgie is as active as he can be and gets around fine.

Georgie loves to go on walks and smell all the scents. Typically a walk isn't complete without him throwing himself on the grass and rolling around - it's as cute as it sounds. Once he is back from his walks, he usually lies down, but if he is still looking for attention he will come sit where you are and offer you his paw!

Georgie is starting basic obedience classes on Oct 30th, where he will learn recall, sit & down, stay & leave it, leash work, off to bed & place, off, timeout, and drop it. He is house trained and has been living with a cat, who he has absolutely no issue with and completely ignores. Georgie's favorite treat is cheese and is great at taking his medications with a slice!

Georgie is a very calm sweetheart who is looking for someone who is home a good amount of time to take him on slow walks or to just lay outside and enjoy the sun with him.

Georgie would make a very loving companion and the best Netflix buddy ever!

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
