Facts about John Gibbens

  • Breed: Boxer
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
John Gibbens got his name through ABR’s Name-A-Boxer program, but his looks just came naturally. He’s a good sized, 4 year old male with a striking coat and big smile. His foster mom says he’s a gentle giant. He is healthy and heartworm negative. He’s a bit of a velcro boy with lots of energy.

John Gibbens is house trained and does OK in his crate although he’s not fond of it. Lucky for him he is trustworthy in the house unattended with his fur foster friends. He loves his walks and is very well behaved until he sees kids that he absolutely must meet; he knows they will love him. He does great with other dogs, may be OK with cats although he does not live with any, and may do well with kids although he does not live with them either.

This big guy loves to do just about anything his people do from laying in your lap to running around the block. He is still an energetic guy so he needs a lot of action with clear, consistent guidance. He would do well in many settings so long as he has consistent outlets for his energy with firm and loving direction. He is a smart, curious guy who learns quickly and loves to please his people.
