Hello there, I'm Gideon Grey, named after the character from Zootopia. Just like him, I might appear tough at first glance, but once you get to know me, you'll discover I'm a big, lovable teddy bear. I've even had the pleasure of enjoying a dog-friendly blueberry pie that resembled the one he makes in the movie.

My foster Mom often mentions that I don't quite realize my size and that I have a strong desire to be a lap dog, constantly seeking cuddles. It's simply because I'm eager to spend time with you. Stuffed toys are my favorite, and I carry them around gently in my mouth. When my foster sister tries to take them, I'm happy to let her, as I prefer not to cause any commotion.

I may be a big guy and sometimes get a bit excited, leading to occasional jumping, but my foster Mom assures me I'm improving, especially when she dangles a treat and asks me to sit during exciting moments. I thrive in the company of other dogs, as I had a challenging time at the shelter until they paired me with a furry companion. Now, I have a pack of friends in my foster home, which boosts my confidence and brings out the best in me.

During walks, I may pull a little, but I'm responding well to training, and with some practice, I'll become even better. I'm a gentle giant at heart, and all I truly want is someone to love and cuddle with.

Can I continue to evolve into the best version of myself with you by my side?
