Games seems like an appropriate name for a guy like him because he just loves them all - board games, thinking games, napping games, and snuggle games! He's all in with head scratches, sofa snuggles, and sniffing the bums of his housemates. I guess you could say he's pretty much all fun and games.

His foster would tell you it's love at first sight with him. He melted right into her as soon as they got home. He sleeps great in his crate and has perfect leash manners - he follows his foster wherever she goes. He's also completely housebroken! He just nudges his foster when it's time to go out. He's also getting to know the cat and the dog in his foster family (just check out his video and pictures on Instagram), but with limited game play instructions they haven't goofed off in the backyard yet. He seems like he would do well with a playmate, but it does take him a day or two to warm up to new fur friends. He prefers to take things slow getting to know new humans, but once he's comfortable, he'll be rolling over for all the belly rubs.

He came to APA! after an accident, and he walks on the top of his hind leg because of it. His injury might require amputation, but that's okay, he's mastered his hopping game! He might also have a pelvic fracture so he's been on low-key play restrictions while that heals. You can see from his videos none of that gets him down in the least! Games is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he will need a few months of rest after treatment at APA!'s expense, and then he will be up for fun and games again.

If you are looking for super-sized fun pup, he could be your new #gameboy! Come meet him today and follow his foster adventures! You can find me on Instagram @funandgamesatx.
