Meet Gunner!! Gunner is a special calm sweet boy that loves sleeping through the day but definitely enjoys his daily walks to let out his energy. He will make you aware if you have missed his walk before bed. As long as Gunner has let out his energy, he does great in a crate and will sleep through the night. He isn’t a very playful boy so other dogs and toys are not in any interest to him. He likes his space when it comes to other animals and doesn’t like dogs getting in his face. He occasionally chases cats and may do better in a home as an only animal. Once Gunner knows what door to use to go outside he will go to it and bark. He does require medication for seizures and has been doing great on his meds that he takes without a fight as long as you have some treats along with it. He is an extremely food motivated dog and will let you know when he is hungry. With that being said, he does enjoy his hobby in counter surfing and as long as things are not in reach he doesn’t try. We have been working on basic training and so far only knows sit. Gunner has had a rough few years and has been delayed in learning his basic commands but every day he gets better! Gunner needs his person he can love on and nap with for years to come. He is a sweet boy who loves belly rubs. He is getting better about "sitting/staying" while his bowl is placed in front of him. He likes to chew and tries to find something that looks "chewable". We've found some great treats that keep him busy and satisfy this urge. He is a STRONG dog. 47 lbs of pure muscle, but he is gentle. He does jump when he gets excited, so he should probably be in a home with older kids and adults (NOT elderly, as he might be too active and heavy for them - especially at feeding time).
Gunner is an ideal companion as he is lovable, gorgeous, and gets along with everyone. Gunner must be kept on his medication – Phenobarbital. This medicine is key to his success and health. Please contact for more information.
