Gunner

BREED: Shepherd /Husky/Great Pyranees
GENDER: Male
APPROX. AGE: 3 – 3.5 years old
SIZE & WEIGHT: Extra large, 95 pounds
HISTORY: One of the animal shelters in NWT we work with got in touch with us about helping find Gunner a home and get him out of a shelter environment so he could get more exercise, and socialization. He had been tied up most his life before his previous owners left him at the shelter since had no time for him.
TEMPERAMENT: Gunner is an outgoing boy that is fearless and needs exercise. He is a determined dog that enjoys being with people, including children.
PERSONALITY: Very smart, happy and seeks attention. He needs an adopter with strong leadership skills. No pushovers!
BEST MATCH: Gunner needs an adopter who is experienced and confident with large dogs. Someone who has an outdoor lifestyle and can take him running, hiking, biking, or any type of active exercise. An adopter who has time to teach basic manners, rules and boundaries. We’ve heard from shelter he is from that he is good with female dogs, not so much with males. We don’t know yet how he would be at dog parks. With good exercise, basic obedience, and leadership from owner, he likely will be fine around the other dogs. He is very bright and needs his brain to be worked, so someone with time to invest in having a big, cute, lively dog! We’ve heard he chases cars, so needs responsible adopter to be sure he isn’t running free and running after cars!
FAVORITE THINGS: Food, toys, playing ball, interacting with people, and we think learning new things with rewards bases training. He needs to use his mind for mental exercise, not just physical. Clicker work is best!
