Hello, I'm Geoffrey.   If you choose me to live in your home, I promise that your lap will never be empty. I will entertain you with my playful nature be it with  toys, bones or with familiar small dog pals. I’m a very good boy sleeping all night in my crate and doing my business outside.  I  enjoy walks, happily trotting along on my leash, smelling everything.

I'm from Texas and have been in a few foster homes.  I’m proud to say that I warm up quickly to my fosters especially when they give me hotdogs.  However, everyone wants to introduce me to new people, and I’m just so scared, I act out.   You see, I wasn’t socialized during the pandemic. I’m in desensitization training and I’m trying to overcome my fear of strangers.  Because I’m still learning, a shared wall residence would not be a good fit.  

I promise to bring plenty of love and companionship to the right home. With patience and understanding, I'm confident that I will learn to tolerate people.  Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, and I look forward to the possibility of becoming a cherished member of your family.

Geoffrey is from Texas. 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.
