There are a few words that come to mind when you think of Gene: "Goofy", "energetic", "fun" and most importantly, "friend". Gene is a loyal and eager to please dog who is eagerly awaiting a family of his own. This bouncy goofball is easily one of the sweetest dogs around and loves getting head pats and scratches from his friends. He is also incredibly smart and a fast learner who will pick up on any new command or activity with enthusiasm. He may not have the skill and finesse of an older dog, but seeing how smart he is makes it a breeze to learn new things!

A home with lots of toys, that enjoys the outdoors and cuddling up inside equally would be a great one for Gene. He is playful and bouncy, so a family that would enjoy playtime and getting outside would be fantastic!  He is incredibly sweet and affectionate and will take up the mantle of "Man's Best Friend" with gusto.

Come by the shelter and meet Gene today!
