Hi there, My name is Gatsby. 

I am a sweet, almost 9 year old, gentle boy who enjoys car rides and playing fetch.  My Mom passed away so I am in a foster home now.  I am a calm guy and not excited by loud noises or distractions or anything.  I am not needy or jumpy or anything like that.  But if you have food, I will be your best friend EVER!!! 

I have been trained to bark for treats, but foster Mom has not heard me bark yet.  She is good at handing out the treats without my barking. :) Lol!  I am told that I sit for treats very well too!  I walk great on a leash.  I enjoy just walking around and smelling stuff.  I was very friendly and outgoing in my original home environment.  I had a little dog and a cat that I got along great with.  Now that I am in my foster home, I am more self-reserved.  One cat, Gracie, has become my best buddy.  She always sits right by me.  The little cat, Nugget, just hisses at me though.  Not sure what his problem is. I just ignore him. 

I am very independent and currently not a cuddle bug, but maybe I will be once I warm up to the new place.  However, I do enjoy sitting on the couch with my foster Mom.  I like to be close, just on my own terms.  I have never been around kids and since I like to have contact on my own terms, it is best that I go to a home that has older kids that understand and respect that about me.  I have not been crated.  I prefer to be a couch potato and I have shown no interest in finding anything to chew on.  My foster Mom says I am perfect.
