 Gibby (GA)

Gibby (GA)

Gibby is very friendly with people, likes car rides, going on walks and runs and taking naps. He is good in the house and prefers to be inside during the day. He is house trained and exhibits no destructive behavior to belongings or furniture. He likes to be with people all day. He has had no signs of aggression when I've had him. He is a gentle guy and very trainable. He knows "sit" and "leave it" and is very obedient. Best to be homed as a single dog or with a well adjusted friendly large dog.

Gibson's exercise needs are low maintenance for his breed. He will sleep at your feet while you work from home or watch you cook and do chores. He has gone out dining and out shopping- he loves to meet people. I work full time and take him out in the evenings and mornings and that seems to be enough to keep him satisfied. He would be a great companion. I suspect he would like to run around with another furry companion if I had one for him. He plays with other friendly big dogs at the dog park! Gibby has growled at other dogs when approached by other dogs while he is on leash, but has since shown improvement . He now attends doggy daycare and plays great with all the other dogs. He likes most dogs, but especially females.

He does have separation anxiety but is manageable because he just wants a person with him. I hardly ever leave him alone except for short periods (10-15 minutes), but mainly lots of barking and trying to go through door or window to get to me. When left in the backyard for some time while knowing you're inside ( I watch him from a large window ) he will sleep by the door. He mainly wants to be by you. If there is another human out there, he will follow them though- very friendly. He could benefit from crate training, but I think it will take time. I have a crate for him and we are working on it. He wanted to get out when I put him in. Lots of barking when left alone even for short periods of time, He needs a human to feel secure- not necessarily the owner. He stays at a relative's house when I run errands and he does really well! He gets a little sad, but no barking and warms up to who are with him.

He presents a prey drive - someone familiar with the husky breed will be a great match! No small animals, cats, or rural areas near livestock.

Gibby needs a home that has some prior dog experience.

Kids 10+. He can be a little mouthy (not in an aggressive way) when you play with him. He also jumps a little when excited to see you and could knock down a small child. Older children and/or calm children who have lived with a dog would probably be best. Gibby can get a little anxious around hyperactivity.

We are helping Gibby's current guardian to rehome him. Please fill out our online application and we will forward to them. Adoption fee would be minimum $100 donation to Furry Friends Rescue. If you have specific questions please send them through and we will put you in touch with his current guardian.
