This handsome guy is Gotti; a SharPei Mix, approximately 5 years old and such a sweet heart!
Abandoned; Gotti was found wandering around the parking lot where 2nd Chance Founder, Diana worked. Scared; Gotti never let anyone near him but continued to show up day after day. With great determination, several failed attempts to rescue him and one day of just sitting and waiting 13 hours until Gotti was ready; he was finally rescued.
Shy at first; Gotti warms up to you once you have spent some time in his company. Gotti is very mellow, happy to keep to himself, but equally enjoys the company of some dogs and humans. Affectionate in his own way, this boy will not pass up human affection. Spending time lounging in his pool, playing with his rescue pals and being brushed are just a few of the things Gotti enjoys most.
Gotti would love a family that has a doggie door and a fenced back yard where he can enjoy sun bathing, playing in water on hot days and the freedom to explore the yard. This precious boy will make a great companion to the right family and will be forever grateful for the unconditional love you will provide.
