Gizmo is a 4 year old Pom-Schipperke mix. He was a rescue from the shelter. He had an owner who left him at the shelter. We took him in. He is an absolute lover boy who by no fault of his own had a family that in the 8+ days he was at the shelter never came to claim him. We are blown away because this boy is so sweet and loving.

From his foster home:

"We had a wonderful time fostering Gizmo in our home. He really loves the morning walks with my husband and our dog, Nayeli. He is such a breeze to care for and it is a plus that he is completely house trained.

He's very cuddly and loves to be around people and meet new people. Plays well with other dogs including the dogs at the dog park. He enjoyed bath time and loved the blow dryer and being brushed. He does have a little mischievous side which is very endearing and adds to his personality. He really loves the attention that we give him and he's always the first one to get the morning cuddle and late night "goodnights". He also dances in circles when he gets really excited."

Gizmo gets along well with other dogs. He lives with big and little dogs. He isn't bothered by anyone he's met so far. He could easily be a dog who goes to the dog park or doggy day camp but in reality he's the type of dog who would most like to go to work with Mom or Dad and hang out in their office. He likes being a part of his human's world without being over the top needy. Gizmo is a dog who would love to visit Starbucks on Saturday morning while his Mom sips her coffee and reads the NYT's.

Gizmo has proven to not be a nuisance barker.

Gizmo could be an option for a home that has less experience but is prepared for inviting a dog into their home. If there are children they need to be over the age of 8.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
