Story
"I'm Jackson, a stately 8-year-old pup. Folks say I have the most enchanting eyes and a perpetual grin that lights up my graying face. My journey here started when a kind soul brought me to the Staunton PD, saying I was a stray. Hard to understand how this happened to me, but praying someone will take a shine to an old dog with lots to offer. My hobbies are commands like sit and down, and nothing brings me more joy than belly rubs! I'm a big fan of rolling on my back and showing off my playful side; it's my way of keeping things light and entertaining. Now, when it comes to other furry friends, I have to admit I'm not fond of those feline creatures. So, the perfect home for me would be one without any other pets. BUT...., if you have a doggy companion, let's arrange a meet-and-greet to see if we hit it off. I'm a gentle soul, great with kids, and always ready for some fun and love. If you're looking for a charming older gentleman with lots of love to give, please consider me: Jackson." ........... Please come meet this sweet soul soon! (We keep our posts up-to-date.)

He is a good dog but once he saw the cats in the lobby, it was hard for him to focus on anything else. e came to us bc someone dropped him off at the Staunton saying he was a stray. Jackson knows sit, down and loves belly rubs. Definitely NO cats for this fella. He is a good dog but once he saw the cats in the lobby, it was hard for him to focus on anything else.

Story
"Hello, I'm Rain, a beautiful little soul with a challenging start to my short life. At just 9 months old and small for my breed, I was found chained to a tree in the pouring rain, with only a plastic dog carrier as shelter. I was a bit scared when I got here, but I'm happy now! I've already mastered the art of sitting, and I absolutely adore belly rubs, treats, and lively games of tug of war with my favorite toy. I've been working closely with a dedicated trainer, and I must say, I'm doing so well!!! She says I'm incredibly attentive and have learned so much already. Although there's a bit more training on the horizon, I'm determined to absorb every bit of it so that I can be the very best little girl for a loving home of my own. Could you be that special family for me?" ........... Please come meet this sweet soul soon! (We keep our posts up-to-date.) We do ADOPTIONS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, on a first-come/first serve basis.

Story
Hi! My name is Nolan and I came here on 11/1 with my best friend Sage. Our owner could no longer care or us, so here we are. We had bad skin due to fleas, but we are getting better with medicated baths every week. We would love to be adopted together, so if you adopt us both, you get 2 for the price of one! Yep! Both of us for $175!!! A great deal for two great dogs! I'm a handsome young dog that walks good on a leash and responds to corrections nicely. I sit on command too! I'm playful and energetic at times, but also gentle with a kind heart. I like to play, and I love to be petted, especially on my chest! I hope to have a home with kids (or adults who act like kids!) I hope they have toys I can chase and treats that are yummy. I've been told I'm a real looker, whatever that means. Now the bad stuff: I'm not good with chickens, and maybe not cats. But, other than that, I can be a wonderful family dog. I dream of a home with a fenced yard where I can play tug-of-war and chase balls. Or maybe we can go on walks! If you are looking for a good boy that loves people, just come meet me...and also my BFF Sage! ....... Note: The 2 for 1 deal is only good if they are adopted together, which is preferred but not required, since they have gotten used to being apart here at the shelter. ......

Hi! My name is Sage and I came here on 11/1 with my best friend Nolan. Our owner could no longer care or us, so here we are. We had bad skin due to fleas, but we are getting better cuz' the staff gives us baths every week. We would love to be adopted together, so if you adopt us both, you get 2 for the price of one! Yep! Both of us for $175!!! Let me tell you about myself. I walk good on a leash, know how to sit, and how to stay. I love kids, and take treats gently. Although I'm playful and energetic at time, I will settle down and am very loving with a kind heart. I prefer a calm home: I get scared when people in the house yell or argue. I listen well, and respond to small leash corrections if I pull. I like to play, and I love to be snuggled. Now the bad stuff: I'm not good with chickens, and probably not cats. And I'll try and to break out of a crate. Sometimes I jump on people for attention, but I'm learning not to. But, other than that, I try and be a wonderful family dog. I dream of a home with a fenced yard where I can play with kids; or maybe we can go on walks and car rides! If you are looking for a pretty, sweet girl, come meet me...and also my BFF Nolan! .......

Meet baby Frankfurt. Frankfurt was born on Oct. 27, 2023 and is ready for a furever home! Part of the fun of adopting a puppy from an animal rescue is the surprise that comes along with their growth. Their size at adulthood is simply a guess and cannot be guaranteed. When you adopt a puppy from GPG, we trust that you will love and care for this animal regardless of their actual adult size and physical appearance. If you're interested in meeting Frankfurt, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, www.gatewaypets.org/adopt. All of our dogs and cats will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

To view other adoptable pets from our shelter, please visit, www.gatewaypets.org/adopt. Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. However, we do not know his/her actual genetic makeup. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.
