Story
Gansito is a show stopper! He is an affectionate, snuggly little boy who is a constant companion. Gansito is super affectionate and definitely willing to share his kisses. He is an easy going guy who lives with a full house: kids, other dogs, and even cats. Gansito loves those car rides and is happy to tag along. Give him an opportunity to go for a walk, and he will obediently be ready and willing. This little one will fall asleep in your arms and enjoy all the caressing you are willing to share; he is even a good little guy when his foster mommy puts on clothes or takes him to the groomer. If you are looking for a small dog with a huge heart, come meet Gansito.
