1/12/2021-Gunner has SERIOUSLY progressed. He is obviously food motivated, who isn't?! During walks, we carry his favorite treats and when a person or other dog comes strolling by Gunner has been learning to relax, sit and wait. He's a work in progress, but he's doing less lunging towards others and more patiently waiting for his treat. He's scared of the basement, loud noises and anything hiding in the dark - big scaredy dog for sure! Gunner has taken a liken to sticks, and his toys! He's finally learning how to play and enjoy life. Since the weather's getting a bit chilly, he is insistent on crawling under the covers and being the best snuggle bug there is Gunner has made many friends and typically remembers them - sometimes it takes some coaxing. However, he is learning that people are not bad and other dogs are just living there best life as he is. Within a few months, I think Gunner will be 50% less reactive to other dogs and be a respectable gentleman on walks.

 

12/21/20-If you're looking for a companion that enjoys long walks, naps and netflix - Gunner is surely your match!  Gunner is adapting very well! Gunner seems to thrive in an environment with a person to entertain him throughout the day. Recently, he met a new family friend and stayed with them for the day. When meeting new humans he is extremely shy and anxious. Once warmed up he loves every person he meets. The family friend expressed that Gunner seems to walk with a 'Mob Mentality'. He's usually looking around and thinking all the dogs are out to get him. On the flip side, Gunner is a scaredy cat. He runs and hides whenever there is a loud noise or something jumps out when he isn't looking. Gunners best characteristic is teddy bear like cuddles. He will let you sleep on his back as you both take naps together and certainly doesn't mind snuggling under the covers.


12/16/20  Gunner is looking for a home for the holidays! Coming in at 85 lbs he is a big cuddly bear! He LOVES to get attention. Gunner has been in the foster home for 3 days now. He has become more comfortable and is showing his true loving colors. He seems to love pets and kisses, practically every 10 mins he's looking for attention. He is great at walking on the leash and doesn't pull too often. However, if he sees a squirrel he becomes extremely antsy. Additionally, he is aggressive and when he sees one on the walk he pulls, barks and attempts to interrogate them. I foresee this being trainable and with a strong individual he will be better around other dogs.

 

Gunner's favorite things are walks, cuddles, and sleep! He loves to sleep all day if you let him but would prefer to be on an adventure!

 


12/13/20-Gunner has arrived into rescue, and after a very long day on the road to his foster home, is settling in. He is an owner surrender as he was having bad fights with the other dog in his home & at doggie daycare with other dogs. His owner said Gunner is a very good dog, he just needs to be the only pet. She also said he listens well, he's funny, goofy & well mannered. Please check back soon as we get to know him better.
