Pet of the Month: St. Gatsby

People call me Gatsby or St. Gatsby but I also think the Great Gatsby has a nice ring to it, don't you?? I'm a handsome 85 pound, 7-year-old pibble mix with those quintessential "airplane ears". I have a great big smile and an adorable spot over one eye that makes me one-of-a-kind.

I have a winning personality and have been told that I'm a well-mannered, affectionate boy. I do love getting back scratches and being loved on, and I promise to love you in return! I'm a loyal, friendly and smart boy. I already know how to ‘come', ‘sit', and ‘heel' and if you tell me ‘off', I know what to do then too. I can't wait to show off all of the skills that I've learned with my trainer! I've heard that people want a trained pup and well, I'm just that! I've been trained in targeting which is pretty cool. I've been taught to "target" or touch things with my nose. Handy, huh?

I'd love to enjoy life in a laid-back household and have a fenced-in backyard. I do need a bit of daily exercise like most doggos, but don't worry I'm not running a marathon anytime soon! My perfect furever home would include experienced dog owners who are loving and patient adults, no kiddos please. I'd also like to be your one and only pet-call me selfish but I want all of your lovin'. We would meet with my trainer to learn the ropes together before riding off into the sunset together. The nice people at Paws In The City even said this training would be free to my furever home people and is included in my adoption donation! So what do you say, are you ready to meet me? If so, apply to foster or adopt me at

Paws in the City is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer, no-kill organization with the commitment to ending the overpopulation, abuse, and neglect of Dallas/Ft. Worth area dogs. We have no paid staff. 100% of all funds raised goes directly to dogs in need. Our goal is that every adoptable dog gets a loving home.
