This week we’d like to feature a very sweet and smart dog named Gator! Gator - Oregon Humane Society And, he has a video! Gator is a 1 year and 7-month-old, 64 pound American pit bull, and he’s a sweetheart! You can see in his video how smart he is! Agility-he’s on it! Food games-loves them! Sit- easy peasy!
He’s never lived with other dogs but he used to go to the dog park every other day and loved playing with his buddies there. Gator has never met a REAL cat as far as we know, but he did meet ‘Robocat’ here at the Oregon Humane and that didn’t go so great. He really wanted to chase Robocat (yes, that’s what is sounds like; a stuffed robotic cat that makes purr and meow noises). Because of that, he’ll need to go to a cat-free home.
Gator is a very friendly boy and likes to say ‘hi’ to everyone he meets when he goes on a walk. He loves squeaky toys, playing tug and going on runs. He’s warms up to new people quite quickly and is very affectionate once he knows you. And remember when I mentioned he was smart? He knows sit, stay, come, down, and leave it! His favorite things are squeaky plush toys, biscuit treats, and going to the dog park.
All that is good stuff, however, his previous owner tells us he gets way too excited around little kids and jumps up on them, so he’d probably do better in either a child-free home or one with older, sturdy kiddos.
Does Gator seem like he might be the dog for you? If so, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of his profile and someone from OHS will reach out to you to set up a time to meet him.
