Staff Pick of the Month: Gilbert

Meet Gilbert!

Gilbert came to HSC from North Myrtle Beach ahead of Hurricane Dorian and has yet to find his new home.

He loves to meet new people go on walks, and explore new things. Gilbert has done well with other dogs here at the shelter, has excellent leash skills and is very gentle.

Gilbert is currently hanging out in a foster home and his foster parent has had nothing but great things to say about him.

This boy is completely house broken, reliable when left alone so doesn't need to be crated (although he is crate trained as well) and doesn't make any noise. He does love to lounge around on the couch with you and will sleep in the bed if you let him.

Come meet Gilbert today!
