Gandalf is a very big, lovable boy looking for his forever home. Gandalf loves meeting new people and will very quickly be leaning on you demanding attention. He could very easily spend the entire day sitting on your lap being adored. Gandalf is looking for a patient home that will take the time to continue his training and give him the space to grow and learn.
Gandalf would do best in a home with no other animals as he has shown signs of reactivity, especially with other dogs. His energy can be easily redirected because he is very food motivated which is great for training. Gandalf is unaware of his big size and could accidentally knock over small children so we are looking for a home for him with adults or older children only. Gandalf can become quite vocal and gets anxious when left alone for long periods of time when he is without company. Gandalf would thrive in a house with a big fenced in yard for him to explore and to release some of his energy.
Gandalf is only available as a foster to adopt as he awaits his upcoming neuter. If this big snuggle bug sounds like a good fit for you, please fill out the application in the link below, contact us for more information or to set up a time to meet him!
