Hi! I’m Red. I know, original right? 

So I’ve been at GAP for a minute now and I’m itching to scoot on out of here and retire into a “pet” or whatever all these girls keep talking about. I don’t know much about it. 

I’m 5 years old but that’s like 35 in dog years so one might say I’m pretty mature. Do mature dogs still play like toddlers?
 Anyway. I’m really social and I’ve had some lady friends here at GAP but I’d drop them in a heartbeat for my ‘forever companion’.  I’m not a fan of the smaller breeds, so bigger dogs only need apply please. 
 A backyard is a MUST because I love swimming and playing under the hose. I don’t mind chasing the odd toy here and there but food is really my jam! I LOOOVE it! Can’t get enough of it! 
 Apparently this means I wouldn’t be suited to a home with small kids. Something about me being too obsessed with food. I don’t know what that means, but I love eating.  

I don’t mind hanging out on my own if you work full-time, as long as I have that aforementioned doggy pal. I have spent roughly 5 weeks in a foster home along with my friend Violet. We were living with 10-12yo children and didn't mind their respectful company.  

Alright so – big dogs, older children, backyard, pool, food. I think I’ve covered everything important. If you’re interested in me, I am at the Central Coast facility and just itchingggggg to leave!
