Story
Well I got Gorka from Florida when he was 2 months old me and my ex raised him, and he is a nice company dog, he loves attention like any other dog, he has a beautiful brindle color and a nice mark on his head that distinguish him from any other dog, hes very alert and would keep your surroundings safe, he's not a fighting dog, he would pretend to be thought but once close to other dogs he's shy. he's currently 5 years and 7 months and i need a home for him because Im leaving to the army and nobody I know can take him.

Hi Everyone! My name is Roxy and I am 9 years old. Listen, don’t let my age fool you because I LOVE to walk, go in the car, and take adventures if you are up for it. I am housebroken, pretty polite on a leash, and will cuddle once I get to know you. Sometimes I like my space for a nap or some alone time, but who doesn’t? Am I right?! I would really love a home to call my own, and I promise to be a good girl. If you would like to meet me, please call Christina at 973-668-7208
