GUNNER

Original story: Reeds Gunner Bob aka Gunner is an AKC registered German shorthaired pointer, b. 6/10/2001 out of Sly's Tell and Girl Ginger. He is in need of a home due to his owner going off to college. He is approximately 60-lbs, white with liver patches, current on vaccines and has had regular veterinary care. We are told he is not good with cats but can be managed with cats depending on the circumstances. Does not bark, loves other dogs and people of all ages but might be too rambunctious for young children. He is not a barker, loves water, travels well in the car and is somewhat leash trained. Good with livestock and likes to hunt but needs training as he forgets to come back. He spent most of his life in a yard with another dog but PeeDee was rehomed recently and now Gunner is facing the winter alone. While Gunner has hunting potential he must be an indoor family member first and a hunter second.

Jan 2009 update: Gunner is now in a foster home learning about being part of a family, house manners, crate training and sneaking up on couches. Has been around kids 7+ and is soaking up the attention like a pro.

Apr 2009: Great news for Gunner! His foster family flunked fostering and say this boy isn't going anywhere besides their couch so he has found his retirement home. Much thanks to Liz and her family for rescuing Gunner from a lonely life and nursing him through a much needed dental and general "tune-up". Make the most of the years you have Gunner and be nice to your new mom & dad and doggie siblings!
