Gizmo is a Yorkshire terrier who was found as a stray and brought to ACC.
Around strangers Gizmo is friendly, outgoing and plays gently with children 4 months and older. Gizmo did not spend any time with any other cats or dogs while with his caretaker so it is unknown how he will react to being around them.
Gizmo did not attempt to bite/scratch any other animals or humans while with his care taker. Gizmo was not bothered by loud sounds. Gizmo is friendly when someone touches his food or bowl while he is eating, takes a treat or toy away, pushes/pulls him off of the furniture, holds/restrains him or disturbs him while he is resting or sleeping. Gizmo’s caretaker did not attempt to brush him, give him a bath, or trim his nails so it is unknown how he will react to those events. If an unfamiliar person approaches his family or home Gizmo is friendly toward them.
For a New Family top Know:
Gizmo is described as friendly, affectionate, playful and mellow with a medium activity level. When at home Gizmo will follow around his caretaker and does not usually play with toys. Gizmo was kept indoors only and was fed dry food. Gizmo is house trained and rarely has any accidents. Gizmo was not left alone and was not crate trained. Gizmo knows the command sit and “go outside”. For exercise Gizmo likes slow walks on a leash.
Gizmo had a loose body and a wagging tail during intake and would lay down on his back for belly rubs. Gizmo allowed staff to pick him up and hold him with no issues and allowed staff to collar, scan for a microchip and take pictures.
