“Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.”
– Dean Koontz, author
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
George is a 5-year-old liver and white German Shorthaired pointer that arrived at Kane County Animal Control as an owner surrender.
It didn’t take any time at all for his sweet nature and easy-going personality to win over the hearts of KCAC staff. With his soulful look and lipid chocolate eyes combined with his affectionate disposition and low-key behavior, George is almost the perfect dog for families with youngsters who aren’t too boisterous.
Young or old, George’s main intent in life seems to be to garner as much attention from everyone within his sight. Toys aren’t on his wish list and spending a day playing and running are for dogs that have nothing better to do with their life.
It’s not that he isn’t willing to learn new things, but George just seems to have a higher purpose, which is to make sure his humans are aware that he is absolutely their very best friend for now and for always. Who can fault him for that?
