Long time friend of Gerard so I surely can be one to attest to his capability of dog care seeing as time after time I've personally witnessed him treating his pets as family.
While i was a neighbor to Gerard for 3 brief years he showed nothing but passion & care for his pets. Gerard even went so far as to help me out on occasion with my Russian terrier Jimmy on days when i was too busy he.d take care of him for me just as a favor so i have no doubt he'll care for anyone's pet.
