Facts about Gordie - Adoption Pending

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Gordie is a Pit Bull Terrier-mix, male, 2 years of age. Shortly after intake to animal control, Gordie tested positive for Parvovirus. He received medical treatment and supportive fluid therapy for this as well as for Campylobacter; Parvovirus and Campylobacter are two serious intestinal infections, which can be fatal if not appropriately treated. Surviving both and totally recovered now, Gordie is ready to move on to his new home and loving family.

Gorgeous Gordie! This brawny, handsome guy is an eager-to-please, totally people-oriented canine who will form deep bonds with loving family members who include him in daily activities and reciprocate the warmth and devotion he offers. Not only strikingly in his good looks, but also loyal, sweet, happy-to-be-around, fun-loving, and pretty warm-hearted, too, Gordie is a social and amiable dog who is, heart and soul, as earnest as they come.

Straight-up an extremely affectionate, people-loving dog who craves human companionship and close contact, Gordie is a committed snuggler who readily gives kisses when asked, he lives to please his people, and he thrives with praise for accomplishment. Highly intelligent and easy to train, this outstanding, pack-oriented dog is looking for family members worthy of his trust and faithful devotion and wanting to reciprocate the same.

Casually relaxed, polite, and mostly mellow, Gordie takes things in stride and is not easily perturbed. Steadfast and genuinely good-natured, Gordie’s success lies in a responsible, caring owner who provides leadership and keeps him well socialized by providing safe opportunities for him to meet new people and master new activities and situations.

An animated, lively, interested, and inquisitive boy, Gordie needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay happy and healthy. His exercise needs though are not very demanding and can be met with regular leashed walks, interactive play sessions, obedience training, and adventurous outings alongside his much-adored family members. Gordie will also really enjoy a securely, enclosed area where he can romp and explore to his hearts contents, and he will definitely excel in obedience.

Loyal, loving, and entirely devoted to his people, Gordie is one terrific dog eagerly waiting for his forever family to come take him home.

Gordie is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. While we think he’ll get along well with a compatible, similar-sized dog he has been properly introduced to, particularly one of the opposite-sex, a home visit and a meet-n-greet with any housemate pets will be required prior to adoption. Gordie’s also comfortable and been well-mannered around children of all ages, and he’ll do well in just about any home where children and pets alike are taught to respect boundaries and interaction is monitored as it should be.

Gordie is a Monroe SPCA adoptable dog who currently resides at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Come meet him during kennel hours Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm, closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

All Monroe SPCA dogs available for adoption at the shelter have an adoption fee of $120.00. This fee includes the dog being spayed or neutered, HW negative, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with filling out an Adoption Application on the animal you're interested in adopting. Once we've received and reviewed your completed application we’ll contact you, usually within 2-3 days (remember, we're all volunteers). Our adoptions are best-fit placements, meaning we strive to ensure a good match for both, the animal being adopted and the adopter.

Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $120.00 to $200.00.
Our adoption fee for cats and kittens is $75.00.

Adoption fee includes the animal being spayed or neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption as well as all dogs being Heartworm negative or receiving treatment for Heartworm.
