Mr. Gerico
Name: Mr. Gerico

Breed: Cur, Mountain / Mix

ABOUT ME: I'm Mr. Gerico, but my friends call me Mr. G for short. I'm a very sweet pup who initially came from Louisiana due to the hurricane last year. I'm a calm, gentle couch potato who would be a great addition to any home.

PERSONALITY: I am a perfectly behaved boy - House trained and gentle and friendly with everyone. My foster mom says I am the sweetest thing and very easy going. I had a seamless transition into my foster home.

DOGS: Other calm dogs could be a good match for me. Bring them to meet me! I live with another dog in my foster home and we get along well.

KIDS: Why not? I've loved everybody I've met so far! I sleep in bed with the teenager in my foster home.

DREAM HOME: If you work from home or are retired, I'm the buddy for you! When left alone, I don't get into mischief... but I do sing my best rendition of Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog" for the whole world to enjoy. Therefore apartments or homes with shared walls with neighbors are not suitable for me.

SPECIAL NOTE: Adopters get to take me through a trial adoption to ensure we're a paw-fect match.

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
