Allow me to introduce myself! I'm Larry the lovebug! I spent the better part of my life on the streets. The wonderful PJ fed me for years. And then one day...that all came to an end. And boy am I happy about that!!! I'm getting used to the good life and I gotta tell ya...I'm totally digging it!

Now mind you, when I first meet someone, I'm a little shy, but that quickly evaporates. I make friends with people easily. And I get along wonderfully with other dogs...heck, I have a bunch of foster dog siblings I thoroughly enjoy being with! As for cats...I'll pass, thank-you! I get along with children too, though I think I would be better in a home with the older ones, just cuz I'm a big guy. Because I was a street dude for the first half of my life, I didn't take good care of myself. Don't get me wrong, I'm quite the healthy guy, but I didn't have the opportunity to take good care of my teeth. For that reason, I eat soft food and treats. Guess that makes me kinda spoiled when you think about it! wink emoticon In my spare time, I like to go for walks. I don't play that much...I actually prefer to just chill with my peeps. On a couch is def a bonus! Really, I would be the perfect 'companion' pet...because there's nothing I like better than being with people!

My perfect home would have other know, to continue to show me the way of being a pet living the good life. And being that I can leap tall buildings in a single bound (okay, not really), a yard with a tall privacy fence would be ideal for me! So, what are you thinking? We're a perfect match?

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you find an animal that you are interested in, submit an adoption application through our website and we will send your information to the foster family. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit.

Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued.
