Available Dogs - Van Gogh


Van Gogh

I am Van Gogh and I am a handsome dog with a bit of an artistic temperament! I might have some heritage that includes breeds like a Great Pyrenees.

I am a smart dog and just a bit aloof - I don’t like being hugged on but I will come to you for attention every day.  

I like to be outdoors and enjoy running, playing fetch and letting out my energy. Then I just want to lie down and relax. My foster parents feel I am very intelligent and super cute but a little stubborn.

My foster parents feel a calm home and parents who are experienced handling dogs would be the best fit as I need training and structure in my life.

Reminder for approved applicants - to apply for one or more available dogs, contact your applications advisor. Don't know who your advisor is? Email NRGRRapplications@hotmail.com.
