George Foreman is the lean, mean, squirrel-chasing machine! That's right, he is the one and only George Foreman! Okay, that's mostly true (except for the mean part). This guy is a drop-dead handsome four year old who can seem half his age when he's playing in the yard, fetching balls and sticks to his heart's content. He will win your heart with his big puppy eyes and flop-tacular ears - an adorable symptom of his blue lacy heritage.

His favorite pastimes are sniffing absolutely everything, snoozing on the couch, and chewing on toys. Give him something worthy to gnaw and he'll be your best friend, which he'll tell you by wiggling on the ground like a goofball. He can also be a bit of a sous chef in the kitchen and cleans floors free of charge. He's not much of a licker, but George absolutely loves to cuddle at the end of the day.

George is house-trained, and has had zero accidents inside. He knows "sit and "wait, and can be a good student when treats are around. While he is not a picky eater, he is very allergic to chicken, so be sure to comb those ingredient labels. He loves his crate and likes to cool down there after a good workout session in the yard. George would be ideal for someone with a fenced-in yard, as he is a very athletic and energetic pup and can climb your average 4ft chain link fence when a squirrel or a cat taunt him. If you are looking for a classy canine with an active lifestyle, George would make a perfect companion. Get in touch and come meet George today!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
