Yesterday we brought home our newest foster boy, G dog. Although we have had him for less than 24 hours we love him already. He is one of those dogs whose sweetness immediately steals a place in your heart.
When we went to pick him up from his current foster mom he was curled up on a bench beside her and the sight of the two of them together nearly broke our hearts. She didn't want to let him go, but after rescuing G from the streets and getting him all his shots and caring for him, there was simply no way for her to keep him any longer. It was by chance that we even met his savior, Barbara, in a store an hour and a half from our house. We struck up a conversation and some how got on the topic of dogs, and she told us G's story which we wrote about here.
G's Story: While driving one day back in January Barbara noticed a boy throwing rocks and yelling at a scared looking dog, she immediately stopped her car and got out to intervene. After assessing the situation she scooped up G and brought him home with her. She searched for his owner, posted signs and Craigslist listings, but no one stepped forward to claim him. She of course did what any dog loving soul would do, she kept him. She had him neutered and got him all his shots and a rabies certificate, and in the meantime she fell in love with this sweetheart of a dog.
Fast forward four months later to today, due to personal circumstances she had to give him up. Hearing the story and meeting this wonderful dog we could not let him fall victim to a shelter. Barbara had rescued him from entering the shelter system and we wanted to make sure he stayed the same happy boy he was, undaunted by the confines of an unfamiliar holding cell. So, for now he lives at the rebel house; playing, sleeping, and loving life along with our rebel pack.
G is a seriously AWESOME dog! He is equal parts mellow and playful. He became instantly attached to us humans and follows us around the house. He sleeps at our feet and is generally just easy going and quiet. And when it's play time, he is nothing but energy. He runs around the backyard and plays beautifully with our two dobermans and little maltese. He knows how to read other dogs and plays very well. He loves people and has lived with children, which he also loves and is very gentle with.
Name: Gallute, but we call him G
Age: Estimated 2 years
Breed: Staffordshire Terrier mix, he has a beautiful dark brown coat with a white and spotted chest, paws, and muzzle and soulful brown eyes.
Gender: Male, neutered
Health: He is in excellent health and is up to date on all his shots and rabies vaccination. He is a medium size dog with a solid build.
Temperament: G is lucky, because although his start in life is unknown, we do know that he was rescued before he ever found his way into a shelter. He is the sweetest dog, very playful, spunky, and affectionate. He is wonderful with people and children and would make a great family dog. He becomes very attached to his people and would do best with a family or individual who can show him a lot of love and affection.
