found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Hi Everybody! Gino here. I'm being fostered in Miramar, FL and am looking for a new home; I've been waiting a month now. I sure do hope my FURever family is out there looking for a special guy just like me. Let's see. What can I tell you about me? For starters, I am very cute (did I say that already?). I'm also very sweet. However, I came from a very bad place before UYR rescued me. FM thinks I either had very little human contact or was hurt by someone because I get very skeered of people. Foster Mom loves me so much....I will go lay down to sleep by her side at bedtime. However, if she moves in the middle of the night, I'm outta there! Sometimes I come to her when she calls.... sometimes I run in the other direction. FM says I am going to need a very patient owner who is willing to help me get past my fears of people. I think there's someone out there willing to shower me with lots of love and wait for me to come out of my shell.
I love other dogs. I love to play-play-play with just about anybody or anypuppy who will play with me. I am a "work in progress" in the pottying outside department, but I do know how to use the wee-wee pads and use them almost all of the time. If you think you have room for one more furkid and you can accept a puppy that might not do typical puppy things yet - like want to snuggle and give lots of kisses, then I'm your man! FM said that my new family can help me learn that it's OK to be loved. I'll be FURever grateful..........
UPDATE 04/25/09: Gino's potential adoption didn't go through, so he is still looking for his forever home!
INITIAL BIO 04/02/09: Gino is an adorable maltese-yorkie mix - a morkie! He is estimated to be 6 months old and weighs approximately 5#. Gino came from a very horrible situation where he was not socialized nor was he around humans very much, so he will need to learn to trust humans once again. He gets along great with other dogs, however. Gino just came into UYR today so please watch this space for upcoming information. PLEASE NOTE! Because of Gino's small size, he can only be adopted into an adult only home.
