Meet Gizmo! This friendly fellow lived in a household with a toddler and an older child and loves kids. Gizmo likes other dogs, but we’re not sure if he has lived with a kitty (we can check that). Gizmo has learned how to sit, come and stay and he’s a 4-star snuggler… he LOVES to curl up with his person/people and be adored. If you haven’t had a dog before, he’s perfect for you, he makes it easy!  Come meet Gizmo in our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
