Gino is an approximately 4-5 month old, currently 13 pound, neutered male puppy. (Previous owners say mom is a Rottweiler, and dad a Boxer. Vet thinks some terrier in there). He will likely be on the large size full grown.
The owners of Gino's parents no longer wanted him, and a neighbor took him in temporarily. He is a somewhat shy boy at first, but comes out of his shell with a little love and encouragement. Gino loves to be held and is affectionate, but not needy. He is very food motivated, and would be an excellent candidate while young for a training class. He is good in a crate, and like most puppies, will need work on potty training. Routine and consistency is key! He is good with other dogs and has shown no interest in the cats in his foster home. He is current on age appropriate vaccinations, and is micro-chipped. Comes with a health certificate.
Preferred home has experience and knowledge with the breed/s mix, a secure fenced in yard he can play in, enough time at home to devote the time and energy a young puppy needs to be socialized and trained, and another furry friend to play with.
Gino is currently in a foster home in San Antonio TX and can be transported to your area if adopted.
Local adopters must meet same requirements as out of state adopters.
Adoption fee is $170, and transport fee to the East coast via Rescue Road Trips is $185.
