Howdy, I'm Gordy. I'm from Texas, I weigh 27 pounds and still growing. I'm about 12 weeks old and have puppy energy. I love to chew on bones and play with squeaky toys and balls. I'm naturally good at fetch, I'll bring it right back to my foster mom. 

I am good with dogs and just want to play with them. I'm not sure about cats as I don't think I've met any. 
I know basic commands, I'm a fast learner and I do potty outside for the most part. I will go in my kennel but still working on enjoying it. It only takes me about 5 minutes to adjust once in there. I sleep through the night in my kennel. I love my dog bed and being next to my people. I'm not sure about young kids as I don't think I've been around any. 
I have stranger danger and am fearful of new people. I'm being told people aren't bad but I'm still learning. I will need someone to work with me on this. Please don't pass me by, I think because I'm young, it's definitely something I can overcome with effort, patience and time. I do think I'd be best in a home without a lot of visitors but enough to get some socialization. 

 

 Since this dog is coming from Texas where heartworm disease is highly prevalent, there is a chance that even if they  test  negative for heartworm now they may be positive in the future as it takes microfilariae 5 to 7 months to mature into adult heartworms after infection. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
