Gatsby can’t wait to meet his new forever family. He is a handsome, active one year old Black Lab mix who loves to keep busy. Gatsby enjoys going on walks, though he still gets excited and pulls some on the leash when he sees something or someone of interest. He will play fetch with his tennis balls and will challenge you to a tug of war. Gatsby was very happy frolicking in the snow this winter and his previous owner said he loves to swim as well. Gatsby is smart and is food motivated, but also has good manners during mealtime and does not beg at the table. One caution ….Gatsby is allergic to chicken, so he needs a special chicken –free diet. There are numerous dog food brands available for his diet and he is not a picky eater. For treats he likes to chew on his kong toy filled with chicken-free goodies or nice bone snacks to munch on. If you let him, Gatsby prefers to sleep in your bed and will wake you between 6 and 7 to go potty outside. He is house broken and will listen if you tell him “off” , but he would really prefer to snuggle with you on the couch , if allowed. He came from a home with cats and a dog, and is fine sharing his space with other four legged friends. Gatsby’s perfect new family will have plenty of time to play with him and give him the love and attention he thrives on.

Patrick L was his foster parent.
