“This guy is a precious little nugget of a dude. He loves to snuggle and be rocked. He is happy as can be and loves, loves, loves to play with toys.”

Just in time for Easter, a big-eared cutie has hippity-hopped his way onto the FBRN Available page. Cuter than a bunny rabbit and sweeter than a jellybean—it’s Gregory!

This black-masked morsel came to FBRN as a 10-week-old puppy after he was diagnosed with a heart condition that his previous owners could not afford to treat. Over the past few months, Gregory has been monitored closely by a cardiologist, and we are thrilled to report that the condition has resolved. This means that Gregory should live a full, healthy, and happy life, although he should get regular EKGs to make sure that all is right with his ticker. His new family should have access to a veterinary heart specialist and the means to ensure that Gregory gets the medical care he needs.

At only 8 months old, Gregory is alllllllll puppy. That means he plays hard, snoozes hard, and can’t get enough of his people. Gregory loves playing with toys and he doesn’t discriminate—ropes, balls, stuffies…he thinks they’re all fantastic. He tears around the yard at breakneck speeds and has been known to do a zoomie or twenty in the house. After he’s thoroughly exhausted himself, Gregory enjoys a nice long nap, either flat on his back or snuggled up with his canine foster sister. And if you have room in your lap, all the better!

Of course, puppydom isn’t all licks and snuggles—it’s also chewed shoes and questionable stains on the living room rug. Under the watchful eye of his foster mom, Gregory has learned a ton about walking on a leash, going potty outdoors, and what is/isn’t appropriate to nibble on. But like all puppies, he’s a work in progress, and has been known to make a bit of mischief around the house (most recently by chewing on foster mom’s ottoman). He can’t quite make it through the night yet without a potty break, and he can get a little noisy when he’s left alone in his crate. His new family should be prepared to continue his training and not be too dismayed if there are a few setbacks along the way. On that note, a puppy obedience class would be a wonderful opportunity for Gregory to learn some new tricks and bond with his new owner.

The perfect home for Gregory is one with a big, securely fenced yard (the better for his zoomies) and a canine sibling to play with. He’d be happy to romp about with some human siblings, too, so long as they are dog-savvy and big enough to withstand 20 pounds of pure puppy energy leaping into them. Gregory is learning not to jump up, but he loves people so much that it’s hard to contain his exuberance! Since he’s still just a baby—and babies need attention—Gregory would do best with someone around the house all day. Taking him to work is another option, but don’t be surprised if a queue of admirers forms outside your office door.

Gregory’s foster mom is understandably smitten, and says: “This guy is a precious little nugget of a dude. He loves to snuggle and be rocked. He is happy as can be and loves, loves, loves to play with toys.”

If Gregory seems like a perfect match for your family, please fill out an application to adopt and tell us why! Just be prepared to travel—Gregory is snoozing on his back, belly to the sky, in the great state of Florida, and will not be shipped.

FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.

ABOUT GREGORY:

Gregory is an active puppy and potty training is a work in progress. He would benefit from obedience training.

Gregory entered FBRN’s care with a heart murmur, which has resolved. Echocardiogram and x-rays performed on 02.05.2020 revealed heart functions within normal limits. He has a tiny atrial septal defect that does not require surgery. Gregory’s heart must be routinely monitored.

Gregory has a history of ear infections and that must be monitored for recurrence. He takes Benadryl as needed for occasional allergies.
