From the Foster:

Hi! My name is Gatsby! I’m 2 years old and ready to find my forever home! I am looking for a family to love and play with! 


My hobbies include: wagging my tail 24/7, following you from room to room, playing with my foster's resident dog and our toys, looking out the window to make sure the house is safe and trying to shower my foster mom with kisses.


I have yet to meet anyone I don’t like, but sometimes I can get a little excited around new people and want to jump up and say hello. I do like to bark and will work to make sure any future home is aware of anyone who walks by, but my bark is way worse than my bite since anyone I meet I am ready to love and give many kisses! The only time I can get a little crabby is when I am woken up from my sleep, but as soon as I realize it is you or a friendly dog, my tail starts to wag and I roll on my back. I do like to cuddle once I settle down, but if anyone moves or there is a noise I will be up to investigate immediately.


I just went through heart worm treatment to make sure I am healthy and ready to go, and I have been dying to play with my foster's resident dog and wanting to run around the yard. I look forward to walks, but we are still working on not getting too excited when we run into other people/dogs on our walks. Be warned, I do like to try to bolt so if you open the door it is best to make sure I am on a leash or there is a fence. I don’t think I would do well with a dog who doesn’t want to play often as I am always following my foster sister around and trying to get her to play or share her toys.


I do love hopping! I’m getting better at not jumping on people, but when my foster mom gets home I like to jump next to her as she walks or try to jump around the yard, I’m looking forward to doing this more now that I’m done with my treatment.


I do have some separation anxiety but we have been working on this at home and it has slowly been getting better! Still, I definitely like to keep you in the same room as me at all times and will be sad seeing anyone leave the house, even if I have just met them for the first time. 


I am for the most part house trained although every once in a while I still have an accident if my schedule is interrupted, but those are few and far between. I am crate trained and can also use puppy pads, but I will protest to you leaving me and prefer to be left out of the crate. If left in a crate I will whine for a few minutes, but after that I settle down. My foster mom lets me sleep out of the crate at night and I am always good, but I usually like to try to wake her up in the morning and don’t like to let her snooze her alarm.


My foster mom calls me little lover, because that’s what I am! I am always happy and ready to give love to anyone I run into. And if you let me get close enough I will make sure to lick your face to show you how happy I am to see you. I can’t wait to find my forever home!

"I was recently treated for  heartworms , and I am feeling much better now! Please let SHH know if you have any questions!"
