Featured Dog: Gerard – ADOPTED!

Gerard

Introducing Gerard, a 1 year old Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (for the breed, see more info here). If that photo makes you smile, Gerard will do so in real life- he’s a very cheerful, enthusiastic dog!

Although he may not seem that way, Gerard loves being a lapdog, if you don’t mind him being a little squirmy (he likes to move around and dash in and out before settling in and panting). He is as soft and fluffy and whiskery as he looks (with strong muscles underneath).

Gerard is very, very food motivated, and sits very nicely for treats, and he’d love to go to obedience school.

He likes other dogs, and would be a great second dog. He’s also fairly energetic, so he probably would love to go to dog park or go running with you and then curl up in your lap for a nice long nap. He’s also a great medium size, so if you are looking for an active dog who is not too big (not over 40-50 lbs) Gerard would be a good choice.

If you are interested in Gerard, please visit him in Kennel 48.

      He is too cute! We have a dog (also adopted from the APS last year) who looks just like Gerard. I can’t help but wonder if they are related. I wish you a very happy life with him.

    omg! i’m so glad to see Gerard has a potential home! I saw his pictures and fell in love with him but cannot convince my husband that we should get another dog. Gerard look so sweet and cuddly! I have his picture as my desktop on my PC! He looks adorable! I hope he works out in your home 😀

    I’m envious of his new parents but thrilled he has found his family!
