Special Criteria What does this mean?
Available for sleepover
Prefers no dogs

Google is a friendly and outgoing dog. He loves being with people and rolling over for belly rubs. He's extremely smart and easily trained. This affectionate boy loves giving kisses and being petted all over. Sadly, he was previously kept on a tight rope in a yard and it caused some minor neck damage. He sees a chiropractic vet periodically to make sure his neck and spine are healthy. Born in 2007, Google is gradually becoming hard of hearing and has minor problems with bladder control overnight (but potty breaks right before bed help with this).

None of these things stop Google from enjoying life. With his friendly demeanor, good energy and his dedication to pleasing people, Google will make a great companion. And he has a generous sponsor who will pay for his adoption fee and his flight to his new home.
