This handsome fella has the biggest heart and needs a special someone to show it to! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Gimley, a 9-year-old Basset Hound and Pit Bull mix from Davis, California. This adorable furball is good with kids and other dogs, neutered, and up to date on all of his vaccinations.

Gimley’s Tale

Gimley was found wandering the streets and was taken in by a foster. While it seems like this pretty pooch didn’t have the best luck in his life up until now, you’d never tell by his behavior: Gimley is a sweet boy and a wonderful companion to his foster mom.

When Gimley was first found, it was obvious that he didn’t have any training with his previous owners. But he’s a very smart doggo, and in the time he’s been in foster, Gimley quickly learned basic commands, including sit, down, shake, and stay. He also knows to make eye contact with his human when given the command “watch,” which, you’ll agree, is pretty pawesome. Gimley is great on walks, too, and since he discovered the perks of a gentle leader harness, he’s super enthusiastic about his daily strolls.

Gimley is one big cuddle bug who just can’t get enough of snuggling, smooches and ear scratches. He’s happiest when he can just hang out near his people, and if it means getting belly rubs too, well, all the better. This affectionate pooch is definitely all love when it comes to kids and other dogs as well, so he’d do equally well in a big family or with a single pawrent. I gotta say, Gimley is truly an all around good boy!

If you think you’d make an ideal furever companion for Gimley, fill out an application at Yolo County SPCA website or email their volunteers for more info on this lovely dog.
