All about Gander
Sweet fella' Gander is a young, goofy boy who is a new arrival in our program and is getting himself settled into his foster home.

He's friendly, loves attention, and to romp around and play.  He is a typical young male who is in need of training and socialization.  Having lived his life in a rural environment he needs to learn about life in a more urban area.  Gander will benefit from opportunities for obedience training and socialization.

Gander previously lived with other dogs but had some resource guarding issues with one of them, and the decision was made to rehome him. This behaviour was limited to one dog, and was not noted with people.  We will be assessing his behaviour around other dogs over the coming weeks. 

He has been vaccinated, and we will be assessing some lameness in his hind end to determine if cruciate repair is required. Vet visit pending.

Updates coming soon!
