Gucci is such a busy boy! This friendly, active young pup is very playful and always wants his human companions to be his playmates. He will hop up to give them lots of kisses, and of course he loves to get lots of pets from them. Then he jumps up to run around the yard, play fetch with a tennis ball and shake and chew his toys. Having so much fun!

He is a gentle boy who does like to come in to eat and sometimes seems happy to watch TV. Then he hops back up to maybe surf the kitchen counter and grab what he sees. He needs some supervision, but when told he grabbed something he shouldn't have, he easily lets it be taken away from him. In his foster home he's curious about their cats, but not aggressive at all.

Gucci is doing great leash walks in his fosters' backyard and is beginning his obedience training, learning to answer sit and down. He also follows sprinkled treats to his crate and easily calms down there. And he is making progress on his house-training.

This very affectionate boy will love a home with active parents who can supervise him while they continue his training. His fosters believe he will do well with a doggie housemate. He is a jumpy big boy, so he will be best with older children. Come meet this good-natured boy. Offer to be his playmate and he'll follow you home!
Come meet your new best friend
