GBR is pleased to introduce Gunther (#2815). This gorgeous boy arrived from China on 3/28. While Gunther was waiting (for a whole year!) in China to come to the US, he got into some fence fights and became known as a very dog reactive dog who couldn’t be around other dogs. So he was kept separate, exercised separately, and did not much training for all that time. He loves to chase the ball and run fast.
While in Beijing during one visit, GBR had a trainer come out and work with Gunther and another dog to see how he did. It was a submissive, young female and Gunther was quite good, very attentive to the trainer (and treats) and after not that long, he was able to be in the fenced area loose with the other dog with no problem. So some work with a trainer, which he’s currently receiving in the Portland area, and some leash work (he’s very exuberant but who can blame him – he had very little attention for a year!), and he’ll have a good chance for a great life. He’s very good with people, loves attention, and is a smart dog who learns quickly. He just needs the opportunity to prove himself!
Gunther did very well on his long trip to the US, was quiet and quite well mannered during all the transit madness, and impressed everyone involved.
Gunther was adopted on July 8, 2018
