My story

Name: Gunner

Breed: Mixed

DOB/Sex: 1/19/18. MN.

Known health issues: None at this time.

Good with: Most dogs. Can be pushy if he can get away with it. Resource guards from other dogs.

NO DOG PARKS. NO CATS. NO BIRDS. NO POCKET PETS. Adult only home.

Bite history: Yes



Needs: An active sporting/hiking home, or working home.



Gunner is 100% AMAZING. This guy has drive, heart, and the work ethic that makes him everything I would want in a sport dog. He's fast, athletic, and never quits. His abilities are only limited by my own.



Gunner participates in Dock Diving and LIVES for it. He now sports a PB of 21' 5" in distance, and 7.00sec in speed. And I know he has more in him! 2022 has been a great season for him.



Gunner has had a few opportunities to try out lure coursing, and also greatly enjoys it. He recently started toss & fetch disc league and is also addicted. With one on one dedication, the sky is the limit! We've attended a bikejoring seminar, and have a carting seminar coming up, and are excited to add to his repertoire with the upcoming fall weather. Anything you can throw at this guy - he is down for!



Gunner is not for the novice handler, and needs someone experienced with high-drive dogs. He's flashy, loud, and sure to grab attention. He settles reasonably well in the home, as long as his daily needs are met, and is generally an easy keeper. He will let himself out of his crate, if bored and looking for something to do. He's good for grooming and the vet, though muzzled as a precaution. He is neutral out and about in the world, and easy to take everywhere. If you are his person, he's down for snuggles, and is very physical with his affection. He's super clean, and even on the muddiest days, somehow comes in relatively clean, even after going hard. I honestly cannot say enough good things about him, and for the right person, there is no better partner.



Gunner is happy as an only dog, or can live with the right matched companions. He is neutral with most, as long as they respect his space. He will resource guard food/toys that he values from other dogs. No cats, birds, or small prey animals for this guy.



Gunner will only be placed in a home, that will allow him to reach his full potential. A sport home is a MUST for this guy. If you are looking for a competitive partner, Gunner is your guy!
