Humane Society of Central Illinois


Goliath is my first dog and he has helped me develop a love and passion for dogs. He has a great demeanor and loving spirit. He has taken a beginner training class and is moving on to intermediate class. He loves learning new tricks (giving his paw is his favorite) and meeting new friends.

Goliath is a true companion and he has made me believe that shelter dogs have a great appreciation for second chances. He has inspired my family members to adopt dogs from shelters and inspired me to volunteer and help animals in the community.

Goliath enjoys car rides, swimming, playing fetch (although he doesn't always bring the toy back) and catching treats in his mouth (cheese is his favorite).
