Hi guys! My name is Gibson and I am 1 years old. I am a Pointer/Vizsla mix. I was found as a stray in the rural part of Missouri and brought to a high-kill shelter. An Animal Rescuer saw my handsome picture and saved me. That magical YES brought me to IAR and into her foster home. Here at my foster home I have some new friends. There are couple dogs – big and small – that are my friends. We run around in the backyard and play. Boy, do I like to play! We play with our toys. When I come inside there are cats that live here too. I don’t bother them. When I meet some new dogs I have to go slow because I am a big boy and sometimes I forget my manners. I like to play with everyone because I am a friendly boy. My foster Mom thinks I have not been socialized with a lot dogs so I should go slow with them. There are some dogs here that I am very good with and there are some dogs that because of my size (well, I am a big boy) I might get too excited. My foster Mom doesn’t think I can be mean but I lack boundaries and I need to learn. Training will fix that maybe my new family will take me to training. That needs to be top on the list of my next home. Also my next home: I would do best with a fenced yard because I love, just LOVE to run. I have learned my manners with cats that live here and I take my treats very well. I know I get my breakfast and dinner in my kennel and I wait my turn. I need to learn to walk better on my leash and maybe one day my new Mom or Dad can teach me how to walk on the leash or better yet – would you like a good running buddy? I think (and my foster Mom thinks this too) I would make a good running buddy because I have great energy. Well, I am a youngster so why wouldn’t I have so much energy? But I do like to lounge around and if you like to have a cuddle buddy I can do that as well. I just wish I had a family that would take the time to give me structure, training and make me to be the best dog. I’m a smart dog that takes correction well. In the short time my foster Mom has made my baby steps grow in leaps and bounds from the time I left the kill shelter. I just need someone to give me the chance. Would you help me? All you got to do is come meet me and see how cool I am. Maybe we can go for a walk. You can see how handsome I am. I will show you all the birds and squirrels. Know how I will show you? By my breeding instinct! I will “point” it out to you. I will go “on point” or maybe you’ll like my awesome eyes. Thanks, Gibson.
