This good-looking guy with the kissable face & perfect pout is Geno! He's a Pocket Pit Bull who's approximately 2 years old, neutered, current on his shots, microchipped and house trained & crate trained. He tends to be dominant & gets along very well with dogs when he's properly introduced, he should not be around cats, and he would probably do best in a home with older children. We met Geno at a shelter when he was only 5 months old and had 20 minutes left before he was euthanized! We couldn't let that happen so he became a Meacham's Mutt!
Geno is a love bug full of personality & character and his foster Mom says he's one of the sweetest dogs she's ever met! ! He loves to snuggle, especially in bed with his Foster Parents, and he enjoys giving kisses! He bonds with his people and seems to know when they aren't feeling good, so he snuggles with them until they feel better or he licks away tears if they're crying. This sweetie loves spending time with his Foster Family's 6 year old daughter, they hang out in her room, watch tv or cuddle. Attention & affection is something Geno loves, especially ear scratches & belly rubs, and he's not shy when it comes to asking for them. If dinner is being made and he's not getting enough attention, this goofy guy will roll over in the middle of the kitchen floor and lay there, waiting for belly scratches! And, if that doesn't work, he has the perfect pout! This goofy guy with the big personality is beautiful, with the softest fur, a white tux & socks and the most adorable wrinkles on his face that just ask to be kissed!
When it comes to playtime, Geno has a blast! He's very playful, a total character and so much fun to be with! He likes to steal things from his Foster Family then play Keep Away so they chase him down. It's his favorite game and you can't help but laugh when he takes something of yours and you have to run after the silly guy! His favorite activities are swimming & going to the farm and he loves playing with toys! He enjoys hanging out & playing with his Foster Family's dogs and the dogs at daycare, which he attends occasionally for a playdate. His Foster Parents set up a homemade agility course for him in their yard and he loves it! When it's time to relax, this frisky guy likes to hang out in his crate for some quiet time, eat peanut butter & veggies from his Kong or chew on his favorite treats, which are smoked bones from the Farmer's Market.
Geno is incredibly smart, a quick learner and has a tendency to listen more to men than women. He attended a Basic Obedience Course to learn some manners and he knows basic commands such as Sit, Stay, and Down. Geno can jump fences so he needs constant supervision when he's outside. He enjoys going for walks and walks nicely for his Foster Dad but he needs a pinch collar with his Foster Mom as he tries to chase squirrels. He likes car rides and going to public places with his Foster Family yet he can be leash reactive at times, so a strong, dominant person would be best handling him. He'd probably love having a younger man in his life, plus with his good looks & outgoing personality, he'd be a great wing man!
Geno will thrive in a home with a lot of love, structure and a schedule for him to follow. He will bring a lot of laughter to his Forever Home with his goofy personality and we can guarantee he'll fill hearts with love! If you'd like to give this good-looking guy with the kissable face & perfect pout the Forever Home he's waiting for, please fill out an Adoption Application for Geno.
