Giztoy is a delightful little guy. He has come a long way from when he first came to AHeinz57. Giztoy loves other dogs. He is very curious about mirrors, glass reflections and even shiny electronics! He has this funny begging stance that is totally adorable! He stands on his hind legs, puts his front paws together and waves them at you to get what he wants! Giztoy also loves to be held and sleep in the human's bed. He has fun exploring outside and will run from end to end of the yard chasing a leaf. He prefers that his human go out with him. Still a bit afraid of the leash therefore a fenced in yard would be best. Giztoy is still working on potty training but he sees the other dogs do their business and follows! Giztoy is warming up to the toys we have in the foster home. What he really likes is the nyla bone.

About AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non-profit animal welfare organization based in Adel, Iowa. In addition to caring for our local strays, we are working to bridge the gap between traditional animal shelters and no-kill rescues in 2 different ways: 1) By providing free transportation for dogs and cats from traditional shelters to no-kill rescues all over the Midwest and Canada. We also provide overnight rest stops for our furry travelers and temporary housing for those whose time has run out at the shelters, but have to wait for a foster spot to open up in one of the rescues; 2) By pulling as many dogs out of traditional shelters that are on death row and placing them in foster homes and forever homes thru our organization.
