Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Gunner. He is a yellow labrador Retriever who was born in May 2021. He weighs 57lbs and has a medium-length hair coat.
Gunner was transferred to our Rescue where the opportunity for adoption is much greater here.
Gunner is a very happy active boy. He requires stimulation as he is on the move a great deal of the day. He loves playing with other dogs, especially chasing. He is very fast and will try and herd the other dog/dogs he is playing with. Gunner is very social with children and people. He was in foster care at another rescue since he was 4 months old but never found the right family. Gunner is astute and has excellent recall. He would benefit and excel from obedience classes. He rides well in a vehicle and loves car rides.
Gunner needs work and practice walking on a lead and body harness. He has a 1/4 acre, fully fenced area, to run on at his foster home so is not used to going for walks. He would do fine in a home with older children as the younger ones, he would bowl over accidentally when he gets playful.
The ideal home for Gunner is one where the family includes him in their outdoor activities. He needs to be able to run a good hour or perhaps go on a good long hike when it's not hot out. He requires mental stimulation so leaving him home with some toys won't work for this boy at his age. He is still a big puppy but housebroken.
Gunner is neutered, up to date with vaccines, 4dx tested negative, dewormed, and on heartworm/flea/tick prevention.
