This week, we have Gideon’s perspective on finding a furever home, and are happy to report that he has been adopted! All the best to Gideon and his new family.
Gideon was the name the nice man at the shelter gave me. I feel lucky as some of the shelter dogs only got a number. I think he was trying to help me, trying to get someone to notice me.
On the outside, I am a non-descript, medium sized (44lbs) dog — perhaps a small boxer mix of sorts. Some have said I have kinda funny looking ears and eyes that don’t shine as brightly as they once did, but I sure perk up when I see potential friends that may want to play with me! There are places where my hair doesn’t grow anymore. You see, I have a few scars, but they are there to prove that I am a lover and not a fighter as they were given to me by others. My fur could definitely benefit from some good nutrition.
My outward appearance shows that my approximate 3-4 years of life have not been the best, but on the inside well…I am a diamond in the rough and now I have hope!
The ladies of the rescue saw something in me worth saving and I do not intend to disappoint them!
So here I am, looking for a soft place to land. I would be grateful for a loving foster home, but would REALLY love to find a furever home to call my very own.
So, if you would be willing to open your heart and home, exhibit a little patience in allowing me to learn what is expected of me and teach me what traits and behaviors are expected of a loving pet, I promise to reward you with unconditional love and loyalty.
My name is Gideon. Please consider adopting me. I am worthy.
I AM NOW ADOPTED!!!!
