MEET GONZO!  He is so unique…but no blue fur or a long nose!  His right eye was recently enucleated, and it took him a bit to get used to it missing.  Gonzo is a character, and one of the most affectionate dogs we have ever had!  He is probably a Cockapoo, 3 yrs old, 15 lbs and full of cuddles and kisses.  He looked like this when we got him…so  sad and forlorn!

But look at him now!!  He looks like a puppy and acts like a puppy!  He is soooooo loveable.  He is good with everyone.  When he arrived, he did a little submissive peeing…but that has improved 90%.  He was a little frightened and needed to settle down.  But…you have to be prepared — just know he grows out of it!  Gonzo wants to engage with YOU, so he would not be good in a home where someone else cares for him.  He needs to bond and when he does, he’s really a Velcro dog who loves his toys (see the video), loves to give kisses, plays fetch the ball, would love older kids (8+) and LOVES YOU!  He is a little socially awkward in crowds or where there are loud noises…he has shown aggression towards other dogs in the home, so he wants to be your one and only.  He just gets over protective and jealous!  He wants you all to himself.  We have seen him blossom but know he has more blossoming to go!  Gonzo doesn’t have separation anxiety, he just gets sad when he is alone.  He isn’t a barker, he’s a lover not a fighter!  We don’t think he’s a daredevil like his namesake….but who knows what lies ahead!  He will need training and attention…but you can’t go wrong with this GONZO MAN!!

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
