GUNNER is a 3 year old neutered black male Lab who weighs 84 pounds. Gunner is an easy going friendly block head black lab. He loves to be with you and has a wicked Lab lean. He loves to play in one of the kiddie pools at the kennel and manages to spill most of the water when he plops down and rolls around in it. Not sure if he knows what toys are for, he will follow a ball but doesn't pick most of them up. He hasn't retrieved a ball yet but will find them to see what they are doing. He would love to have a house with a fenced yard and some kids to play with. Gunner does not like thunderstorms will hide in the shower or come be you. If left outside he will try to find a place to hide to get away from the storm. Knows sit, come & lie down. Pulls some on lead, good with Easy Walk Harness. Seems to be house and crate trained. Gunners Story. He came in to Halifax County shelter as a stray, he was chipped and shelter located his owners. They got him as a puppy when their baby was born so he could have a puppy to be raised with. Gunner was allowed to be outside in a fenced yard while the couple was at work. They have moved to town and have a smaller fenced yard and Gunner started jumping the fence during thunder storms as he was scared. They asked the shelter manager to find a rescue since they work and they did not want any harm to come to their dog. She asked us if we would help him. He is approved for kids 10+. More info soon!

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!

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.
