Hiya humans. I am George. I started out as a bit of a free spirit, kinda wandering around on my own for a bit. I never really knew my parents and had to make a lot of choices. Some where good and some not so great. I landed up quite lost, sad and hungry. One day, a rather nice lady took me home, told me I should get off the streets and make a life for myself. Boy did I get spoiled. I kind of enjoyed it, but the rehab I needed required was a bit more complex than love and cuddles so I became part of the Dogtown family. I am still working through a few more things, but I am doing really well.

I am a smiley dog (literally) and I am very affectionate with people who I know and trust. I love playing and learning new things.

I am a social boy and I get along with pretty much any kind of dog. My favourite activity is running around off lead and sniffing every nook and cranny of an area. I really enjoy my social walks and group classes here at Dogtown, mostly because I get to show off how smart I am :) .

I absolutely hate water, I am not a big fan of rainy days either. The thunder scares me and I will try and make myself very small and fit into a teeny tiny space to try and get away from the angry clouds.

My beautiful soft coat needs to be brushed often otherwise it does get a bit matter. I was never a huge  fan of grooming and baths (the water issue again) and that used to be a big problem but I am getting better. The humans here have done a lot of TTouch on me an now I like being touched.

Because of me living on the streets for a long time and having to fend for myself, I developed a bit of an issue about food. I really don’t like other dogs to come near my food. I also don’t really like the idea of a strange person coming close to my food but I am working on that, I promise.

I have never met a cat before so I am not sure about a home with cats. I also think that because of my grumpiness with food, I need to be in a home where there are no young kids as they might not understand why I don’t like sharing :(

Truth be told, I a still battling with a few things but that does not mean I don’t deserve a family. I just need an understanding and patient family who will get to know me and my quirks and help me to work through them so that I can be the George I know I can be :)

Please give me a chance, come meet me, you won’t regret it!
