About Gerald

Gerald A220399 Gerald is a 8 year old neutered male who came into the shelter on 9/2 as a stray. Handling 9/7: https://youtu.be/UF6yunrpVPk Handling: https://youtu.be/tbGMBGJgGz4 Handling 9/5: https://youtu.be/keoWlX7AI9A It’s always hard to see seniors at the shelter, but Gerald says “senior? Who you calling a senior?!” Gerald rests quietly in his kennel waiting for his turn to go outside. He’s easy to leash up and is a gentle boy. Right now Gerald seems to have a “no pets” policy, and quite frankly, that’s fine! He deserves to be the star of the show! Gerald is at a great age where he’s happy for leisurely strolls and then cuddling up for night of watching movies or binge watching his favorite shows. Seniors rock! (Even if Gerald insists he’s not a senior 😂) Come meet Gerald and give him the (retirement) home he deserves!

Bo A219509 Bo is a 7 month old neutered male who came into the shelter on 8/16 as an owner surrender. Handling 8/26: https://youtu.be/ZAYP_qZ8i7I Handling 8/25: https://youtu.be/skCXWxNnQWs Handling 8/25: https://youtu.be/KEzVlJihRZI Handling video: https://youtu.be/diD9AL39Pa0 Bo is cute right! He’s also extremely smart which makes him a poor fit for shelter life. He’s easy to leash but immediately starts grabbing the leash. He’s bored and looking for a game to play anywhere he can. Bo already knows sit and is very food motivated. Within minutes, we had a system down to work on his attention jumping where he was sitting on sound alone. Smart boy! Bo also picked up fetch like a professional athlete! It’s hard to believe he’s so young. He loves attention and allowed handling all over and excelled with positive encouragement. The big but comes out when he gets frustrated though and his youthful inexperience shows. He uses his mouth to communicate, its not uncommon but can be misinterpreted by people. For that reason cute Bo can’t go into any home. He will need an experienced family that is 100% dedicated to ongoing training. Bo wants to learn and likes the work. You know the old saying idle paws are the devils workshop, well the saying is hands but the concept applies to puppies too. show less
