Gaston's Story

Looking for a canine buddy you can curl up under the covers with and stay warm when it's just too cold outside?  Then Gaston just might be the perfect guy for you!  Gaston is a super adorable and laid back Shepherd/Cattle Dog mix who wants nothing more than to become your very best friend.  He originally came to PAWS as a young lad and was quickly adopted into a home where he stayed for about 7 years.  Sadly, Gaston was brought back when it became clear that he was not a good fit for their household.  He is such a sweet boy and has a gentle nature, we feel that he would be best suited for a quiet home without young children.  His warm, brown eyes and cute, greying face make him absolutely irresistible! 

Gaston adores people so much that he would love to be the center of attention as the only pet in the home.  He is also not particularly fond of being left alone for long periods of time, so he would enjoy it if his humans were often home and could give this older gentleman all the affection he deserves.  Gaston is a very mellow and calm boy and he would love to find someone who enjoys laying back and relaxing as much as he does.  Although he does love being a bit lazy, Gaston also enjoys being outdoors and going on walks.  He is currently enjoying a nice vacation away from the shelter in a foster home where he loved dressing up as a pineapple for Halloween! Gaston has been thriving to the fullest and absolutely loves going for walks in the great outdoors. He also is completely housebroken and crate trained and absolutely loves his foster parents!  Gaston’s dream is to find a family who will give him lots of belly rubs and can be on the receiving end of his wet kisses.  He has so much love to give!  Sound like the type of dog you’ve always wanted?  Then it just might be a match made in heaven!
