Hi I’m Gunner, and I am going on 3. I have lots of energy like most GSP’s and love to hunt anything that moves. I also love to play ball. I was not in very good shape when I came to rescue, I was very skinny and heartworm positive, but now I am healthy, thanks to my rescue family.
I am house trained, crate trained, (love my crate) and I am careful about running out an open door, I know to wait. You never know what might be around the corner, maybe a bird, lizard or squirrel. I usually come when I am called if I am not hunting. I’m pretty good on a leash, it’s a work in progress.
I do like other dogs, but I have too much energy for some small dogs.
When I first meet new people, I am very, very shy. The same with new places. Once I get to know someone, they are my peeps, and I love attention. I just need to get to know you first. Small children make me nervous, so I need a home with grown people.
The perfect home for me would be a place with a big fenced back yard to explore, and play ball. I need a fence when I am on my own, so I am secure and do not get lost. Another dog to play with would be nice, and a family that will be patience with my concerns about new places. I am getting better but it’s going to take more time for me not to be intimidated, by people and places I am not familiar with. So, too it would be best for me if you can come meet me at my foster home.
I am located in Myakka City, Fl, very close to Bradenton.
I am fully vetted, neutered, heartworm negative and temperament tested, my adoption gee if $375.00. If you are interested in adopting me, please complete an adoption application and contact my foster mom, Linda.
