Would you look at this big smile!  How could anyone ever let him go?!  Goober was found as a stray in the city, now his search for a happy, safe home begins.  Goober is only about 3 years old and when we say he loves everyone he meets, we mean it!  While Goober was standing outside with a staff member and a contractor approached him to say hello, Goober acted as if it was his long-lost best friend, nearly knocking him down to shower him with hugs and kisses.  Goober is definitely a mushy, sweet, lovable goober, that's for sure.  He's a little strong on a leash and could use some direction with that, but he's otherwise so well-behaved, he sits and lays down when asked, he's very gentle with taking treats too.  He loves to zoom, run, and play in our exercise yard and lean against you for lots of attention.  Goober seems fine with other dogs he passes by so bring yours in to meet him and we'll see how it goes.  You'll love goofy Goober!  Call 609-693-1900 or email: for an application for Goober.  File#52699  7/1/21
