Available Dog - Gibson


Gibson (Gibby to his pals!) is a large, sweet, playful guy, about 6 yrs old, who is looking for a friend. He walks nicely on leash, is crate/house trained and sleeps quietly in his crate all night. Gibby is okay with cats! He loves to go for walks or rides in the car. He is fairly low key until it comes to toys! 

Gibby is fanatical about his favorite West Paw toys! He loves the texture and goes straight for them over all my other types of toys. He will try to put 2 in his mouth at once and then proudly carry them around for ALL to admire! SO adorable! He will almost do a flip in the air, (like a cat) when you throw his ball/toys!!

Gibson does not do well with other dogs. He just doesn't like them. That said, if a dog will ignore him AND his toys, (like my older dog does) they can be loose in a room together and Gibby will ignore right back. For all parties concerned, I think he should be an only (get all the attention) dog. Gibby agrees!

Who is ready for this big hunka-golden love boy? He is VERY excited to meet the parent(s) of his dreams! Are you ready to make Gibby's dreams come TRUE?!
