Bingo is his name

Bingo is about 6 years old, fixed, up to date on shots, on Heartguard and topical flea medicine. He weighs about 21 lbs. His is very friendly, loyal, good with children and other pets, and playful. Bingo was rescued from another family that could no longer keep him.

His current owner works long hours during the day and Bingo does not like being left alone that long. He is okay for maybe a couple of hours, but he will go in the house if no one is there to take care of him. She has tried crating him, but he goes in his crate and then she has to clean both him and the crate. She has tried gating him in the kitchen but he jumps the gate. She tried putting him in her mud room but he chewed a hole in the carpet. He should probably go to a home where the owner is retired or home a lot.

He is good with kids and very loving. He just needs to know you are there. If any one is interested in Bingo, please call Cyndi Lindenmuth at 570-356-2387 or email . He is really sweet and needs that special person to love him.
