A volunteer writes: Our Gregory has a lot going for him – he’s gorgeous for starters, and I think should be the official ‘greeter, ambassador’ for us. There isn’t a person or dog he doesn’t want to meet and even thinks the squirrels and birds in the park might enjoy his company as he pulls towards them. Sorry Greg! Showing off his housetraining skills the moment we’re out the door, he then greets a staffer with a big stand up hug. So social and friendly, Greg poses for photos like a pro, shows off his ‘sit’, and can be a bit grabby with treats so best to let him take them from the palm of your hand. Kisses, tail wags, a big goofy smile – he’s a terrific dog who has been well taken care of before joining us. Curious and alert to everything going on beyond our pen, he greets every dog passing by with a friendly wave of his tail. In group play with other males, Gregory bows to solicit play and then enjoys running play. His caramel coat (ice cream cone) and white face (vanilla ice cream with a dollop of caramel) is stunning and his personality matches. He’s looking for a fun, friendly and lively person or family with whom to spend the rest of his life. We’re rooting for him to meet that person today so come pay us a visit and be sure to ask for him.
