Meet Gunner

Gunner is a very beautiful soul! He’s so calm and sweet! What an easy and well-behaved good boy!  He’s a very handsome reverse brindle with white on his chest that has black speckles that look like chips! He’s a delicious chocolate chip cookie! Gunner has the cutest nub wag when he’s happy to see you! He’s a mellow dude, no crazy zoomies from this guy! He’s great with other dogs too! He does best with female dogs about his own size.  Gunner fit very quickly into his foster home and will do the same at his new forever home.  This boy is a treat monkey!   His absolute favorite treat are bananas!  Just picking one up brings on the drooling!  Of course, he’ll sit patiently and wait for some!

He likes to sit at the door sometimes and see if anything exciting is going on outside. Occasionally, someone will go by and Gunner will give a bark or two. He will go to the toy bins and pick out a toy to play with. He will walk around just squeaking a toy having himself a good time!  Sometimes he’ll bring a toy to his chosen human for some playtime!

He’s always up for ear scratches or belly rubs!  Gunner is an all-star at cuddling! Grab a blanket, turn on your favorite show and meet Gunner on the couch for some snuggles!

Gunner is a sweet, gentle, super good boy!  If you think you might be a great match with Gunner get your app in! You will not want to miss out on this boy!

Health issues: Gunner has Protein Losing Enteropathy believed to be caused by a pretty severe case of IBD. Gunner must only be fed his current food (Raw Nature’s Logic Rabbit).  No other foods or snacks except for bananas and real canned pumpkin.  They are safe for him to eat.  He’s doing fabulous on this food. He is happy! He’s gained weight and his fur is soft and shiny!  He is also on a few medications/supplements.  It’s not known how long he will stay on these medications.  Our first goal is to wean him completely off prednisone and he’s almost there! He’s down to just half the dose he was on when he arrived to ABR! He currently takes twice daily metronidazole, endosorb, and enteric canine support power.  He also takes Fortiflora and prednisone once a day.   It is not known yet if any of these medications could be lifelong.  It’s a small price to pay for a happy, healthy super amazing pet.

If you are thinking of adding a beautiful boxer boy to your family, don’t miss out on Gunner!
