Gino - more pics & update -- ADOPTED!

It's Gino!
I have had this giant loverboy in my home for a few days and must say, he is AWESOME! Gino is very relaxed and sleeps anytime you are not urging him to take a walk or feeding him. He is an active dog, but as soon as activity ceases, he takes a nap :) I wish I could get my dog to take a hint from Gino and calm down sometimes!
Gino, like any typical boxer, likes ear rubs and snuggling with his foster sister. We went to adoption events today and Gino was a knock-out. He was tired and hot and still acted like the beautiful, even-tempered boy that he is. Another dog growled at Gino and his reaction was to look up at me and turn to walk away. What a champ!
Gino is a must-meet!!!

Gino -- ADOPTED!

This is Gino!
Gino is a 2-3 year old boxer mix. He is currently hanging out at a shelter in the upstate, getting his heartworm treatments but he will be good to go in a few short weeks! The shelter staff have a soft spot for this big cuddly boy, and say that he is a total lovebug. Gino weighs 65-70 pounds but will probably put on a few more pounds once he is heartworm and shelter free.
Gino is good with other dogs and kids and would make an AMAZING family dog! We're not sure how Gino does with cats, but my guess is that he would be ok. Gino is still a young boxer, so he is still very trainable and energetic.
This big guy needs a home and a family to love on! Lets find a home for Gino :)
As always with Namaste adoptees, Gino will be up to date on all of his vaccines, as well as dewormed and neutered.
Please contact Namaste Large Breed Rescue with questions, to set up a meet-and-greet, and of course for an Adoption Application!
