I know a guy who's nice and sweet! (Hint: it's me!) If you like candy, I can't be beat! My name is Gumball, and I am a fun-loving, affectionate young guy who would love to snuggle my way into your home and heart. I am a good mix of active and calm: my favorite activities include long walkies, playing in the yard with my foster brother, and curling up on the couch for cuddle time when I am all tired out. I love other dogs, and my ideal family will include a canine sibling that I can play zoomies and wrestle with. I also love my people with my whole heart and get along well with kiddos, so I am a wonderful pup for a family with children. I'm also pretty smart and have made great progress on potty and crate training; I would thrive with a patient family that will continue to help me work on these skills as well as sign me up for training classes so I can continue to learn. If you need some extra sugar in your life, you should fill out an adoption application ASAP so we can start our happily ever after 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.
