Meet Gizmo

Gizmo may not be traditionally beautiful but he is very cute in his own way. Some people who have seen him think he is absolutely gorgeous (which of course he is). His coat is a lovely golden colour and will not take much grooming at all, just a good brush now and then. He does have bat-type ears which only makes him cuter. Gizmo does have one good party trick

he can do a handstand and walks along on his two front legs

very amusing. Gizmo is a very well behaved boy and is definitely an inside dog. He is housetrained and is great in the car. Gizmo is used to being off lead at the dog park and beach and comes when called. He is good with other dogs but would probably be fine as an only dog as long as he has someone around. Although he is only young he does seem to like the quieter life where he can just sit on your lap all day and sleep curled up beside you at night. He does like to get out for a walk but would not require a lot of exercise. Gizmo is being cared for in the Wollongong area.

Gizmo was adopted on 08 August 2008 after 2 months in foster care
