My name is Ghiacciaio, which is Italian for the word glacier. I am 11 months old and I weigh 60 lbs. (9/1/23). I am very loving and I never meet a stranger. I greet everyone with a wagging tail! I am also extremely intelligent and a very fast learner. I get along well with other dogs, cats, and children. I love being with my people more than anything!

Look really big in the picture with my person but that is because she is really short. I am a wonderful companion and I would love to have a permanent family to call my very own!

I'm heartworm negative and up-to-date on my rabies and dhpp vaccines. I will be seen by a veterinarian before going to my new home. All of my medical records will accompany me.

We do this to maximize their exposure in hopes of getting our pets adopted as quickly as possible to make room for another unwanted pet.

Email is the best method of contact. Applications can be found on our website 

Once an application is approved, the foster phone number is provided so that you can learn more about that pet behaviors and personality before making an adoption decision. I’m
