Available Dog

Vesper is a 2-year-old Lab that arrived from another shelter after he’d been found as a stray. This guy is good with staff but is very fearful of new people. However, he’s come a long way since he first arrived at Golden Gateway. It’s taken awhile, but with positive-rewards training, he’s made great progress. While he’s sensitive about handling, he loves going for walks and also loves to play with toys. Vesper will need to go to a home without other dogs and also without children. He’ll do best with an adopter who has experience with rescue dogs and a lot of patience. It may also be best if his adopter would visit him several times at Golden Gateway before taking him home, so he can develop trust.

NOTE: A portion of Vesper’s adoption fee has been underwritten by a generous supporter.
