Gibson is a big, handsome boy. He can be pretty mellow, but also likes to play and his favorite toys are deer antlers and stuffed animals (especially his teddy bear)! He is a very smart boy who knows commands like sit, down, come, wait, off, and touch. Gibson does not need to be kenneled, as he is content to sleep on the couch all day. Gibson loves being with his people, but can be independent as well. Gibson needs a home with no children, absolutely no cats or small dogs or male dogs, but he has shown success with big female dogs. He would need to meet any potential fur-siblings, possibly a few times to get to know them. He also needs a fenced yard. Gibson likes to go on walks, but because of his size (he's 88 lbs), he can pull sometimes. Do you have room for this big handsome boy?

About AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non-profit animal welfare organization based in Adel, Iowa. In addition to caring for our local strays, we are working to bridge the gap between traditional animal shelters and no-kill rescues in 2 different ways: 1) By providing free transportation for dogs and cats from traditional shelters to no-kill rescues all over the Midwest and Canada. We also provide overnight rest stops for our furry travelers and temporary housing for those whose time has run out at the shelters, but have to wait for a foster spot to open up in one of the rescues; 2) By pulling as many dogs out of traditional shelters that are on death row and placing them in foster homes and forever homes thru our organization.
