Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Just like his namesake, Gnocchi is petite, buttery soft and absolutely delicious! I can’t get enough of this sweet boy and since our first date he’s skyrocketed to the top of my ‘must see’ list each time I visit the Care Center. A true gentleman in everything he does, Gnocchi waits sooo patiently on his bed for his turn to go out, appealing to passers by with puppy dog eyes that seem custom designed to melt hearts. Who could resist that adorably freckled face? Certainly not this girl! As you’d expect, Gnocchi walks like a dream on leash and doesn’t object to being dressed in a coat either and he sits like a champ to nibble treats lightly from my hand when it’s time for photos. Snuggles and kisses are appreciated and reciprocated in kind and I can’t imagine a better couch cuddle buddy than Gnocchi, his beautiful head lightly resting on your knees, jowls smushed to either side as he sighs with contentment before relaxing into a nap. Sounds like heaven on earth to me! Our good boy rocked his behavior assessment but as of this writing he’s still very shy around other dogs so will need slow introductions to new four-legged friends. When it comes to the two-legged variety of course, he’s very much open for business! Gnocchi is the perfect ‘comfort food’ for the soul and he’s ready and waiting to charm his way into your heart today. Please don’t make him wait too long… Another volunteer writes: Never being one to pass up a helping of Gnocchi (my favorite comfort food), I certainly wasn’t going to pass up spending time with this cuddle boy. Named well, his coat is as soft as cream, his tail wags with friendship to all, he loves to cuddle and give gentle kisses, and is as sweet and soft as the food after which he was named. Housetrained, good on the leash, he enjoys treats, taking them gently from my hand. Gnocchi did the cutest thing ever as we walked back into the building and I wish I had my camera ready. In the foyer there’s a large mural of a dog, and he stood up against it, looking at the dog and wagging his tail. How long can you hold the ‘awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww’? Gnocchi has quickly achieved staff and volunteer favorite status, and that’s no surprise. His calm, easy and sweet manner is bound to make him your favorite, too.
