Meet Gordon

Gordon is an 80 pound hunk, estimated to be just under 2 years old and his only wish is for a forever family.

Things Gordon is good at:
-Snuggling you while sleeping.
-Snuggling you while awake.
-Having a very large head.

Things Gordon is bad at:
-Understanding snuggletime is over.

If you’re looking for a furry shadow, Gordon is your man. We’re talking a stage-5-clinger, cuddle-you-to-death kinda buddy. He loves kids, but sometimes forgets his own size and may accidentally knock a little human down. In his mind…Gordon weighs 8 pounds instead of 80 and wonders why he can’t be carried everywhere in your pocket.

He gets along well with most dogs and loves a good car ride. He’s a smart cookie – he already knows "sit", "crate" and he’s working on “down”. Gordon had some anxiety about his crate when he first moved into his foster home but has made huge improvements and has been crating nicely for several weeks now. Gordon is potty trained when kept on a schedule, but is still learning how to signal his human when he wants to go out…he’s been letting his dog friends do the asking for him.

Like all of us, Gordon is a work in progress but is doing so well learning how to be the perfect roommate. Gordon is a sweet and gentle soul who we just KNOW is destined to be the bestest-best friend anyone could ask for.
