“I’ve seen bad turn to good plenty of times. You just can’t lose faith.”  Jethro Gibbs, NCIS

Welcome Gibbs! At just two years old and 58 pounds, Gibbs is the perfect age and size! With his handsome brindle color, you can’t help but fall in love with everything about him.

Gibbs is housetrained and has had zero accidents while in his foster home! He doesn’t quite have a signal yet, but he knows to keep the house clean. As far as crate training goes, Gibbs is still working on it. He goes into his kennel on his own and sleeps, but does need a little bit of encouragement to go in his crate when Foster Dad leaves the home! It takes a second for Gibbs to stop protesting Foster Dad’s departure, but once he does, he’s happy to settle in his crate. He also knows “sit” and “leave it”, and is currently working on a few other tricks like “stay” and “down”.

Gibbs is great with other dogs, and loves to bounce around with all of his new friends! He’d be a great dog park dog for someone who’s hoping for a social butterfly! Gibbs is extremely confident but respectful of all the new dogs he meets, as well as with his canine friends at the dog park!

Gibbs is great with new people! He loves to meet new human friends and will charm you with a tail wag! He’s also been around children of various ages and has shown only spectacular behavior.

Our boy is pretty flexible in terms of energy, he isn’t exactly super high energy, but always wants to be doing something! He would be a great dog for someone who wants a hiking buddy, or for someone who’s willing to take him to the dog park! He is great on a leash and would be wonderful for someone who is active outdoors.

When it comes to affection, Gibbs isn’t much into the mushy-gushy stuff right now. He’d much rather prowl the house or pounce on his toys, but he does occasionally stop by for a belly rub or two! We think Gibbs will bond extremely well with whoever ends up adopting him!

Is there space for a dog bed next to your side of the bed? Gibbs would be happy to fill that spot! Contact us today!
