This is Gordon.
Gordon was adopted but then surrendered again. So, the SPCA behaviorist asked me to take Gordon on as a foster to see how he does in the home. The surrendering family said that he had problems with housetraining. He is afraid to go outside so I could see how this might be a problem
But he did great in our home! Granted, he mostly just wanted to snuggle on the couch (and by snuggle, I mean practically laying on top of me while I was on the computer!).
But he did go outside and potty. And he never made a mess inside! You do have to prod him with a leash to go outside, but he started getting the idea pretty quickly that if he went to the bathroom, then we could go back inside and snuggle.
He got along with my pups as well. They loved taking naps together.
He was a big dog, but so sweet and gentle. He will make a great addition to any family!
