Gunner was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. His breeder wanted him to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out his life as a cherished pet!
Gunner is a happy, outgoing boy and has been doing great with adjusting to life as a pet in his foster home. He loooves human attention and loves pets and being around his people! So far, he seems to get along well with everyone he meets and also seems to do very well with the other dogs of all sizes in his current foster home.
Gunner is currently still working on potty training and while he has been doing well with going potty outside, a regular, consistent schedule will help with his continued potty training in his new home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him. He also does sometimes mark when he is in new places. He has also done great with crate training and sleeps quietly in his kennel during the night or when his foster family happens to leave the home. For his safety, we recommend that he keep a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised so he is safe and secure while no one is home. He does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of him inside the home.
Medically, Gunner seems to be in great health! He has been neutered, updated on vaccinations/wormings, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian.
Gunner would do well in almost any type of home but since he is still working on potty training, and does not know how to potty on a leash, a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). If a prospective home has kids, we think that'd be just fine for him. While he does not live with children currently, he has met children in his current foster home and did wonderful with them during their meeting/playtimes. We also think he'd love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office. He loves to just hang out with his people and the other dogs in the home, explore and investigate what his people might be doing. He loves to bounce around the yard outside with the other dogs! If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem - he's completely happy sleeping the day away in his kennel as long as his people can arrange a mid day potty break for him!
