From the TV show, Wallace and Gromit, Gromit is a sensitive, intelligent, resourceful dog with a genuine affection for Wallace. Being the less eccentric one of the two, he's much more aware than his master and has a better judge of character.
Gromit was brought in the city shelter as a stray by a member of the public. Even though he's very much a mix, his cute face and charming personality won the staff over and they convinced us to give him a chance in our program. We have no regrets!
Adoption Fee: $200
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: 12-24 mths
Color: White & Brindle
Gromit was heartworm positive when he arrived at the shelter but has since completed his treatment He's back on his feet and good to go :-)
White with small brindle markings on face and one spot on tail. Gromit looks like he might be mix with a hunting or herding breed. Very hard to tell. He's a little smaller than average for a Pit Bull type dog. It's possible that with Animal Control's approval, he could live in a municipality with mild BSL.
Gromit is fostered in a home with two adults and an older female Pit Bull mix. There are no children in his foster home but he has met some while on walks.
Gromit is crated when home alone and at night. He prefers his crate to be in his foster parent's bedroom so he doesn't feel alone.
There is a large fenced yard with privacy fence in his foster home, and he loves to romp and play outside with his foster sister.
Gromit is not destructive in home and is potty trained.
Gromit is a happy-go-lucky boy with a juvenile personality. He is eager-to-please and lovable. His level of energy is medium to high. He loves to be in the middle of the action with everyone and to amuse the gallery with his silly antics.
Behavior with people:
Very friendly with his loved-ones but timid and reserved when meeting strangers. He warms up though and enjoys the company of people.
Behavior with children:
Gromit briefly met a 2 year old neighbor child. He was timid when meeting the baby but warmed up and quickly turned the "licker" on.
Behavior with other dogs:
Gromit gets along very well with the female pit mix in home. They play great together. He can definitly be the "annoying little brother" at times but nothing that cant be managed with leadership. This little guy would love a home with an outgoing big sister.
Behavior with other animals:
He seems to have a high-prey drive. No cat please!
Gromit is learning commands in home, like sit, down, stay, and look. He is eager to please but has puppy energy. Once you get his attention, he is a fast learner and very smart.
Foster mom describes him as friendly, loving and easy to handle. He's also cute as can be and full of charm.
