In shelter Dog

Northbrook, IL, 60062
Pet name:
Meet Gatsby,

He goes by his name, the Great Gatsby, and he knows it! Have you always wanted a lion as a pet? Gatsby is an adorable fun-loving sassy boy. He is a young, male cocker-pei. This fluffy boys coat grows more similar to that of a retriever, and like any shar-pei or cocker spaniel, he will have grooming needs relative to his breed(s). Gatsby enjoys protecting the family home and chasing everything from birds to cars. He is very active and enjoys running and playing.

Gatsby continues to work on his social skills. Not for a novice dog owner, continued training will be needed for this darling boy. He is eager to please and very affectionate. Gatsby is now potty-trained and knows the word, "potty" very well. He knows basic commands like sit, leave it, off and paw. He loves learning!

Gatsby is still quite reactive towards people and other animals. He would do best in a house with a fenced in yard. Gatsby is slow to warm up and will do well in a household with no small dogs or cats. He has not been around children and is dog-selective. Gatsby came into the shelter kennel-trained and associates it with punishment. Gatsby will require a meet and greet with the potential adopter family. Once his trust is gained, he will cuddle, care and play with you for the rest of your lives.

There is truly no dog quite like Gatsby!
