This adorable, little monkey is George! George is a one-year old cutie pie with quite the zest for life. How did he get the name George, you ask? This fun loving guy is as curious as they come!
Kennel life has been stressful for George but this smart cookie cozied up to the boss, quickly becoming BFF’s with our Executive Director, Kristin. George’s days are now spent hanging in her office listening to country music (Kenny Chesney, Old Dominion, and Zac Brown are his favorites), making guest appearances on zoom meetings, snoopervising parking lot antics from her window, sharing pet safe lunches and snacks, and being told he’s a good boy about 1,000 times a day (so don’t blame us if he has a bit of an ego). Seriously, since becoming Kristin’s office mate, we have learned a lot about him and he’s made significant progress from the scared pup who arrived as a local stray.
George is a happy-go-lucky fella who enjoys meeting people though is occasionally a little shy to start. Once he warms up, he is all about getting and giving love! George has a lot of energy and will make a wonderful companion to an active and outgoing person, or couple, who matches his play-style and exuberance level. He enjoys running in the fenced yard, going on walks, and playing indoors with his toys so he’s looking for an active family that can give him the exercise and play time he desires. He is also very smart and loves to learn new things, especially when he’s rewarded with treats.
George is a big fan of toys – every day is Christmas for this guy! Given his play-style and level of excitability, we think he would do best in home without young children. George will also be happiest as your only love (no other pets, please!) but trust us, with his fun nature and sweet personality, you won’t yearn for another dog. Cats and critters are also a no for our curious pal. Like many terriers, his prey drive is strong.
Since George is still young, he would benefit from some training – positive reinforcement only! He has attended training classes with our volunteer dog trainer at the shelter which he truly enjoys. It is recommended he will continue with this training. George would love a family that would work with him on his manners and impulse control to help him build off of the progress he’s made here with us. At the shelter, George has learned sit, leave it, wait, and shake paws. Continued training will benefit him as he needs work with loose leash walking and learning the polite way to greet people. Our friend George likes to jump! We have also started crate training where he enjoys relaxing in his crate with his toys.
As much as we love this brindle beauty, George deserves a family to call his own and Kristin can’t wait to introduce you to her special boy. Disclaimer: All potential adopters must agree to continue to tell George he is a good boy 1,000 times a day!
