About Gatsby

Adoption Fee: $400
Boston Terrier / French Bulldog
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

I cannot say enough amazing things about this compact loaf of adorable, he is dog friendly as long as there is no food or toys around perfectly crate trained, house trained and obedience trained. His personality is funny and sweet and he is truly a charismatic lil man. However I must address a couple not so amazing things so that readers know quickly if he isn't going to work before falling more in love. Gatsby is NOT good with men, or male boys that are older than around 8 that will become men, just no males in the home. He also has some toy/bone/chew toy resource guarding issues which we have been working on but truthfully it's not getting much better so he may do best as a mostly only dog overall. Now back to the good, Gatsby is a fun loving, incredibly devoted and loving dog. He is insanely cute and actually I think he may have a touch of French Bulldog in there but it could just be his genetics lean more towards the Frenchie side of things. He is the perfect size for about anything, cuddling on the couch, short walks or adventures in the car. He has the funniest expressions and most hilarious personality. He is perfectly crate trained, house trained and knows commands. He does have a sensitive stomach and needs to eat a particular type of food as to not upset his belly, but it's very well priced and relatively easy to find. This extremely dapper and charismatic boy is impossible not to love. He does have a very flat face for a Boston and thus he will overheat quickly if given the chance. This is not your running Buddy or hiking companion unless you count going from the couch to the kitchen as a hike, than this is your man! He loves to lounge in the baby pool or the splash pad. This boy is an absolute treasure and is incredibly loved by his last and current foster but it's time to find his FURever people in a home that's suited to what he needs. Why no men? We all know the question is coming, so I'll address it. My guess is that originally he came from a home that was riddled with domestic violence and it impacted him greatly. He will 100% attack and bite a male if he feels the male is being threatening to a female he loves. 98% of the time he's fine, but when he's not fine, he's really NOT fine. At this point we do not believe its worth the possibility of him losing another amazing home so we are seeking a home without men. How bad is the resource guarding?It's pretty bad. He will charge and fight another dog for a particular item if he wants it. This is only if he wants it, other times when he's not interested he's perfectly fine. Also don't bother trying to give him a different toy he will scoff at you and judge your clear lack of intelligence. Again these are just 2 negatives in a dog with an absolute ton of positives. I feel that both of these aspects are correctable with a lot of time and patience. While he continues to stay with his current foster she will continue to work on both but especially the resource guarding in hopes that it will lesson. To be honest this little man is so fantastic these 2 negatives are worth it to have him in your life.
