In shelter DogFredericksburg, VA, 22408
Hi my name is Gecko! I’m 5 years old and 53 lbs! You ever wanted the best of both worlds? Then I just may be the pal you’re looking for. I am a happy couch (or chair) potato in the house. If you have a sunny spot, even better. But when we’re out on a walk, I’m a great walker with stamina and nice leash manners. I do great in a crate at home. I get along with other dogs too, so I am up for some playing, but not too much like those crazy puppies! If you happen to meet me in my kennel at ODHS, don’t worry, those hops I have are not for “home.” I’am just so excited to see you and hope that you’ll pick me to take out. Hope to see you soon.,,,Love, Gecko You can still come adopt me or even join our foster program to help the humans learn all the awesome things about new dogs like me! Learn more on our website! Hope to see you soon! What breed am I? Mixed mutt! ODHS does not breed label (unless there’s official paperwork), as studies show it is nearly impossible to tell the exact breed of each dog based off of their appearance.
