Ganoush was a mess when we met him at the Downey shelter. He had scabs all over his head and ears and his right leg had two large wounds. We had no idea how he got like that but we did not care – you could just tell he needed someone to help him.
This dog prefers the company of humans. He gives great kisses and leans up against you, mostly for reassurance. He is very tentative….almost like he is afraid to get too close too quickly. But once he does, he is ready for loving.
Ganoush has few social skills. He does not know how to approach a dog, does not know how to play and definitely has no idea what to do with a toy. He was probably pretty lonely until he joined Dawg Squad. Our boy Popeye has taken him under his wing and is helping him to learn how to interact.
Give Ganoush a chance…..this is the kind of dog that makes your heart melt and makes you proud to help him figure out the world. Ganoush is already neutered, up-to-date on shots, micro-chipped, good with dogs, good with kids, and good with cats. He is age three and probably about 63-65 lbs.
