Dog for Adoption: Gil
Ed’s note: Gil found a new home!
Gil is a 21/2-month-old lovely little guy, friendly, outgoing, and with a tail that wags at incredible speed when people approach him. He and his three siblings were abandoned in a box in a park, one of the sad ways people come up with as sorry alternatives to neutering their animals. Though abandonment could be considered better than the pound and its virtual 100-percent kill rate, it still offers little chance of survival to the animals. Rescue is rare. Gil and his siblings were extremely lucky, but they still need homes. Being just a puppy, Gil is still in the middle of learning many new things about the world and his role in it, including such things as where he is permitted to go potty. He is also learning to walk on a leash. Gil needs someone with a lot of time to spend with him, socialize him and continue teaching him. Gil is currently in a foster home in Tokyo along with his siblings. Anyone who can help this little guy, please give ARK a call.
