This is Gordon. Our soon to be new-addition to the family. Steve and I visited him this afternoon and fell in love with him. Its not a done deal yet, but I think that Gordon's foster dads liked Steve and I the best of all the potential adopters.
We still don't know too much about Gordon. He is timid and gentle. He is estimated to be around 5 years old. He was rescued from a busted puppy mill in Quebec about four weeks ago where he was treated horribly and did not have human contact. His foster dads say that Gordon is just learning to be a dog and how to do dog things. He is just starting to understand the concept of treats and is very fearful of being on a leash. He just learned how to walk up and down stairs.
He has been kept in a tiny cage for five years. He has not been able to develop his muscles because of this so his back legs always shake. Up until 4 weeks ago he did not understand what it was to be touched or cuddled.
Steve and I are super excited to bring him home and give him an awesome life and to watch him progress and become more confident and grow to be the dog that he is meant to be.
