Gunner has had quite a journey with Beauties. We first found him at the shelter on death row. He was confiscated by Animal Control living on a log chain outside with no food and water and wasn’t super excited when animal control came.  Dogs who live life At the shelter he was kennel reactive and almost lost his life because his fearful reactions at the shelter were misunderstood and he was considered likely dog aggressive. Luckily Amy and Randi decided to take a chance on him.

Over time, we found that Gunner is reactive with dogs when there is a barrier (leash, kennel, fence) but with proper introduction and time, Gunner is friendly with dogs and cats.  He needs the right match and his bff Randi will be sure your home is the right fit.
Gunner is a sweet boy who loves to be loved! He's a big ol' goober who loves to flop down at your feet for belly rubs. He is a free spirit who loves to play and destroy his toys, He loves all visitors and will love you forever if you give him a treaty!  Men are his absolute favorite, he's a total dude's dog. Would you believe this big guy loves to curl up with his human friends?  He also really loves being covered in a blankey which means he also loves a good sweater day!   He is wonderful with kids and has lived in a home with newborn through 10 years old.  Gunner also loves car rides, despite sometimes being nervous, he does want to go.  Hanging outside is his FAVORITE!  This silly guy also has silly and fun zoomies. One thing you can always count on when giving him your time and love is his amazing smile. Gunner would make a wonderful and loyal companion for someone who wants a big, adorable shadow.

Gunner is so loved but he does have some baggage from his life as a chain dog that he just can't seem to shake. He is NOT a dog that can do walks or dog parks. He amps at any dog outside his leash barrier and corrections only cause more negative stimulation and for him to redirect on his handler. Gunner requires a 6 foot privacy fence.  He thrives with strong leadership and structure.  He knows several commands that he has learned throughout the years working with all the volunteers that enjoy spending time with this big goof.

We LOVE our Gunner, Gunny, G and we know his perfect home is out there.
