Update: Gunner is settling in to his foster home. He loves riding in the car, and did very well! He's full of energy and really enjoys long walks. He walks fairly well on his leash and didn't mind all the neighborhood dogs barking at him from their yards. He also hasn't paid any attention to the resident cat....and she marched right up to his face to introduce herself! He's very affectionate--there is no shortage of kisses.
Watch him catch a treat! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLbfAozrbOs
Update: Gunner's family did add that he is incredibly affectionate, but can be mouthy, so he still needs to be reminded that hands and feet are not fair game. He walks very well on a leash and pretty much ignores other dogs. He is comfortable in a crate and has been crated up to 6 hours at a time. He did find one toy that he was interested in- a JW Hollee Roller- and he will retrieve it and frisbees. He also enjoys destuffing soft toys. He is afraid of thunder, gunfire and sudden loud noises and will try to hide under the sofa cushions, in the shower or take solace in a covered crate.
