Description: 
Gibson is an owner surrender. He is two years old. Gibson is neutered, up to date on Bordatella, Rabies and 7 in 1 (DHPP-C) shots. He is Heartworm Hworm/Lyme/Erlichia negative. Gibson weighs 17.6 pounds. Gibson gets along with other dogs. He has not been tested with cats. Gibson would probably do best in a home without young children as he gets a bit mouthy. Gibson appears to be housetrained to the doggie door and cratetrained. More information: Gibson was adopted from a shelter and then surrendered to rescue after it was determined he was too mouthy with the adopter's small children. NO SMALL Children as he is snappy with them when he is laying down. Gibby is a sweet loving little guy! He doesn't quite know how to play, but over time and with patience I think he would get the idea. We have thrown the ball for him--he'd run after it then as soon as he'd get to it he'd turn around and look me as if to ask, 'Now what?!' The closest he has come to actually playing is to squirm around on his back while you rub his tummy then start 'boxing' with his front paws while still on his back. He loves to hang out on the couch when his foster family is moving around the house. He'll snuggle up next to the foster mom, but not so much with the foster dad (he may prefer a female in the household). He'll snuggle up on the floor next to the bed when the foster mom tosses the throw pillows on the ground and doesn't seem to want to come up on the bed until invited, but once he's on the bed he will snuggle up for the night (so far doesn't like to be under the covers). He sleeps through the night and is perfectly fine to go all night without a potty break. This is a really nice dog who has been through a home, to shelter, fostered, back to shelter, adopted, returned to same shelter, then adopted again, then to rescue. It is no wonder he has no idea what to do. He lives for attention and when he gets it, he gets over excited. Gibby wants to please. He just needs someone willing to work with him on obedience and what is expected of him. He is mouthy as are a lot of Bostons so he needs someone who has had Bostons who needed some work on behavior in the past. Gibby is a beautiful dog who given a chance will make an excellent companion and family member for the right person. Gibson's Adoption fee is $300.
