Hi my name is Gino!  I am a Dogue de Bordeaux, otherwise known as a French Mastiff.  You may have seen one of my friends in "Turner and Hootch".  I am four years old and love everyone.  I have learned how to be devoted, loving, caring, and compassionate from humans.  I have also learned that they give treats!  Things my owner has learned about me is that I like to be outside in the winter, playing in the snow.  My owners have also learned that I like to sleep, be petted, and how to be a responsible handler.  My favorite trick is sleeping on the couch, but I also know how to sit, stay, and lay down.  Sometimes my size gets in the way of me being able to do better tricks.  However, make no bones about it...I am a great therapy dog because I love to be cuddled with, petted, hugged, and kissed.  But most of all I love being around children and adults of all ages, because I am one of the only animals that will love you more than I love myself.

My Favorite Places to Visit: 
Barber National Institute.  My volunteer handler is named Rochelle.
