Cheers, mates! My name is Gallagher, and I am a soulful sweetie who would love to cuddle with you. I get along great with everyone I meet: people of all ages, other dogs, and even cats. I especially love getting pets and snuggles from my people, and am very happy to lounge next to you on the couch. I have a moderate energy level and enjoy long walks to explore the world. I had to have my left rear paw amputated after I was left in a vacant building and got tangled up in wire, but my tripod status does not bother me in the least! I have adapted very well since my surgery and love to live life to the fullest. I'm pretty smart, too: I'm mostly potty trained (I just need to master not marking in the house, but am making great progress!) and am fine home alone for a couple hours uncrated if you need to leave for a while. Fetching Tails requires all adopters of younger dogs like me to sign us up for training classes, and I think it will be a fun adventure for us to experience together. I have a gentle demeanor, and am ready to find my loving forever family! If that could be you, I hope you reach out to my Fetching friends soon!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
