Gino is a spunky, energetic, playful and affectionate young boy. Though he loves to cuddle, he also needs lots of playtime and exercise, both mental and physical, before he's ready for a nap! He loves to play fetch slash tug with his tiny little stuffed toys! Gino is house and crate trained in his foster home, but he was potty pad trained in his previous home, so it would be easy for him to revert back to that behavior if not given the proper guidance from his humans. Gino is reactive - he barks at people when they come into the room, he barks at new dogs, etc - and is working hard on training in his foster home. He gets along with all dogs, but does have his little man syndrome moments with them, and has yet to figure out exactly how the play thing works, though he is really trying!


Gino was owner surrendered because his parents were traveling too much. He's current on vet work and altered. His previous vet called him a shih tzu mix, but we can't see any shit tzu in this black and tan, silky haired boy. Gino will require regular brushing, as well as grooming every 6-8 weeks. He's not super fond of either, so we're working on grooming tolerance in his foster home, as well.
