Gareth is a mellow fella looking for a kind home to build his confidence!


The basics

  • My name is Gareth
  • On my last birthday, I was 2
  • I am a boy
  • I've been homeless since September 9, 2023

The good stuff

  • My best trick is 'sit.' I take treats very softly. Oh, and if the mood is just right I can do some mighty impressive zoomies. But perhaps my best trick is how I can steal your heart! xo
  • Me in three words: mello, sweet, gentle - and one more - handsome!
  • How I feel about other critters: I would prefer to be the only dog in my home, but am open to having dog friends outside the home. Cats? Dunno, never met one.
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to hang out with my person and get and give affection. That said, now I need a person of my own. I love to play with toys and earn treats, too!
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a household that a soft, sweet, gentle, kind, very mellow fellow like me can call home. Ideally my people can spend time with me, and help me build up my confidence. I don't need a ton of activity - a few short walks a day would be divine - mostly I want a soft bed, and a kind lap for cuddling with my new human.
