Description: 
This is Gage. He was picked up as a stray and rescued from a high kill Animal Control Facility. He is a very sweet dog who likes to be where you are and keep an eye on whatever it is you are doing. He was great for his bath and all types of handling. He is housebroken and walks very nicely on leash as well. He is fine with kids and cats, he took a week to warm up to our resident male dog but now they are the best of friends so some patience and time may be needed when introducing him to new dogs. He is on the small side and currently weighs 74 lbs., however he should be around 90lbs for a healthy weight. He has beautiful markings and coat. He loves to snuggle and will lay his head in your lap for a head massage, he closes his eyes and just totally relaxes! He seems to be a bit nervous of cars when on walks and does have a little anxiety when riding in them but we are working on it and hope that time and encouragement will be enough to help him over the hurdle. He goes into his crate well for a treat and sleeps in it every night with no issue. He does like to hoard things he's not supposed to have but has not done much damage at all. He loves his chew bone, Kong and stuffed toys. He has respected baby gates but does try to muscle his way through at times, he so wants to be near his people! Gage has a had a rough start but you wouldn't know it to meet him, he is a great dog that would make any family very happy!NGPR Pooch Profile Name: Gage in MO Age: Approximately 2 yrsColor: white with grey/tan on ears and around eyes Dew Claws: yes, 2 on one foot and one on the other Estimated Adult Weight: 90 lbsOrigin: MO from Animal Control Current Location: NGPR approved foster in SW MO.Medical: Neutered, dewormed, negative for heartworm, up-to-date on vaccinations and currently on flea, tick and heartworm preventative.
