If you'd like to be happily greeted by a dancing partner when you arrive home, come meet Gordon! This friendly boy is initially a little shy with strangers, but once he gets acquainted, he loves interacting with people. He wants to please them, and is eager to welcome you home. And he really wants your attention.

An easy to please pup, Gordon is typically calm and obedient, and never very demanding. He's a housetrained boy who is doing well with his crate training. He loves to have his humans home with him, but he's also willing to stay home alone.

This sweet boy hopes for a home with people who can give him the attention he loves. He hasn't been observed with other dogs yet, but he's gotten along very well with teenagers in his foster home - and with cats. Come meet your new dancing buddy!
