Cheers, mates! My name is Gingham, and I am ready for a lifetime of adventure and fun with a loving family to cal my own. I am a friendly, outgoing pup who enjoys long walkies so I can explore the great outdoors, playing with my doggie friends, and snacking on yummy treats (my foster momma says I am very treat motivated!) I get along great with everyone I meet including kiddos, other pups, and even kitty cats; I attend doggie daycare and nothing makes me happier than running inside so I can greet all my friends. I have a typical puppy energy, so an active family that will enjoy lots of playtime and adventures would be my dream come true. It would also be a big bonus to have a fenced yard and another doggie BFF in the family so we can romp and play to our hearts content. I am a smart young dude, too: I am potty and crate trained, and am eager to learn even more, especially when I get treats for a reward! Fetching Tails requires adopters of young dogs like me to sign us up for training classes, and I think it will be the first of many, many fun adventures we will experience together. I hope you hurry up and fill out an adoption application soon; as much fun as I am having with my foster momma, I am excited and eager to start my happily ever after with my forever family 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.
