Meet Gordo

Meet Gordo, a very sweet dog with a heart of gold. Gordo loves everyone he meets, and he's beyond smart. He's a real testament to the fact that dogs are not just pets, but intelligent and loving members of our families. Gordo does have a medical condition called megaesophagus, which means that his esophagus is enlarged and has difficulty pushing food down to his stomach. To help him eat, Gordo eats upright in a special chair called a Bailey chair. This allows him to sit up while eating, which helps the food move down to his stomach more easily. Despite his condition, Gordo is super easy to take care of, and he's a very loving dog. He eats twice a day, and he even puts himself in the chair - all you have to do is lock it. Gordo is very independent and takes his eating routine very seriously! Gordo's love and loyalty knows no bounds, and he's always eager to please his favorite people. He has a friendly and outgoing personality, and he loves to be around people and other dogs. In short, Gordo is a special dog who has proven that he can overcome challenges with grace and determination. His loving nature, combined with his intelligence and independence, make him a true joy to be around. We know that whoever has the privilege of caring for him will be rewarded with a lifetime of love and loyalty.
