This is Georgio. He’s a shy guy who thinks shelter life is oh-so-overwhelming. New situations, surroundings, and people tend to make him nervous, but with a patient, quiet home this gentle soul will blossom! He was in a foster home, and was described as a sweet guy that loves to snuggle and greet all people! He loves to spend time with his canine foster siblings. Because he’s a shy potato, Georgio is looking for a home willing to give him plenty of time to settle in!

Georgio is a shy guy, which makes him one of our Unfurgettable Friends! If you are interested in learning more about Georgio, email ATTN: Georgio and fill out the online pre-adoption form.


Georgio was in a loving foster home. Here is what they have to say:

“Georgio gains confidence every day.

He loves to meet people and dogs alike. He is constantly turning heads and impresses everyone person meets with his good nature. He plays well with other dogs and has been good with the few older kids that he has met. He loves a good squishy toy and a good bone.

He has learned sit, down, and typically comes when called.  He has been working on paw, leave it and off. He has starting jumping up to say hi on people and has started to steal things off counters when no one is looking (he is getting braver and braver each day!).

He has discovered belly crawling with a toy under the couch and then barking at it. It is so cute and silly!

He is generally house broken. He has had a few accidents. It is best to have him go out and go pee before he eats breakfast or he will have an accident when he finishes eating.

He walks well on leash. He is generally not bothered by traffic but noisy trucks can be a bit scary and will make him stop dead in his tracks, but when they are gone he is ready to go again. He has done well on moderate hikes too.

He likes to explore the outdoors and has recently picked up an interest in exploring the waters edge.

He is a good office companion and typically lies next to me on a dog bed napping interspersed with playing with toys and chewing on bones.”
