Age: 3 years
It’s undeniable: Gepetto is an absolute sweetheart. He’s incredibly friendly to every person he meets, and he loves to be stroked and cuddled! Despite some rough times in his past—the ASPCA rescued him from a hoarder in Tennessee—Gepetto is an energetic, happy guy (and that boundless energy makes him a great running buddy). Gepetto knows basic manners, and he’s ready to work hard to learn more with a dedicated and patient pet parent. He can get antsy when left alone, so he’ll need lots of stuff to keep him busy while his people are away, and he shouldn’t get the run of the house until he learns the rules. This affectionate Shepherd mix would be happy to live with children 10 and up.
