George ~ ADOPTED


Hi, I'm George. I was born on 10/7/07 so I'm almost 8 months old now. I have had little formal training, but I know "sit" and I'm learning some other commands. I am housetrained and crate trained, neutered, microchipped and up to date on my shots.

I love kids. Big kids or little kids. I adjust my play level depending on the size of the kid involved. I love to play with balls of every kind, but there is this one ball I really, really love. My foster mom calls it a "cuz" ball. It squeaks really, really loud and my foster brother HATES it 'cause it is SO loud. I'm ok with loud noises although I startle easily. I'm pretty good with other dogs although I bark at them at first, just to show them I'm tough.

I love to swim and go for walks, but my all time favorite place to be is with my people. My foster mom says I am too big to be a lap dog, but I still try. I follow my foster mom all over the house. I'm very loving and just want a family who will play with me and just be there for me. Another dog in the house would be nice, but as long as I have someone to hang out with, I'll be happy.

I do tend to bark when I see something new or if I see another dog coming into MY yard. I also bark if another dog barks at me. Hey, fair's fair. And I love to chew everything. I'm a puppy after all.

Mom says I don't need a fence as she believes I can be trained to "come" and "stay" reliably, but she says I have to go to obedience school. Is that where they teach you to count? Oops, Mom wants the computer back now . . . .

Note from George's foster mom: George weighs 55.5 pounds and I think that is as big as he is going to get. He is a big, athletic dog and needs exercise, but he is very calm for such a young dog. He does not jump up on people and he will just sit with his head in your lap for as long as you will let him.

George has far too much interest in cats, and will not be placed with them.

George does have a ball obsession where he fixates on the ball, but he can be distracted. He is not highly food motivated so the ball is the high value item for him. He's a complete love.

George is being fostered in New Hamphire.
