If you love Labs, you’re going to love Gunner, our 11 month-old Yellow Lab (mix?) who’s all puppy. Gunner came into an overcrowded county dog shelter as a stray and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could relax in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. Since we don’t have any history on this boy, we can’t know for sure if he’s a mix or not. He sure looks and acts like mostly Lab but is on the small side at only about 45 pounds. In true Lab fashion, Gunner LOVES to play with people, other dogs, just about anyone and anything who’ll engage him. It appears that he hasn’t much training so is going to need a family who has the time to work with an active young dog and channel all of his puppy enthusiasm in a positive direction. He would truly love to have a playful canine pal in his new home as he loves wrestling and playing chase with his fellow foster dogs. Gunner’s leash manners are a work in progress as he tends to be all over the place when on a leash. With daily practice though and help from an EasyWalk Harness, he’s certain to be walking like a pro in no time. Gunner has done well with crate-training in his foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. This boy could not be any sweeter so just needs someone who can put the time and effort into obedience training. You’ll be rewarded with an outstanding companion for many years! Gunner weighs about 45 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Gunner. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
