Gilligan is a 2 year old neutered black male. He weighs 50 lbs but needs to gain 10-15 lbs. He is crate trained and house trained. Good with dogs. No cat history but had no reaction to the vet kitties. Approved for kids 8 and up. He's up to date on his vaccines and is Heartworm negative.
Gilligan has hydrocephalus, a condition he likely has had from birth and that accounts for some his little quirks such as walking in circles, cocking his head, and prancing when walking. This diagnosis does not slow this charming fella down one bit! Gilligan has blossomed well in his foster home. He loves playing in water- getting a bath, splashing in puddles, and swimming! This sweet boy loves to get belly scratches and ear rubs. He wiggles his way easily into the heart of anyone who meets him.
If you want to make a difference in a dog's life and be a part of a true transformation, then Gilligan would be honored and thrilled to meet you. Gilligan is looking for a patient human family who is excited to devote their time and energy into helping him forget all about his start to life. He wants to please and is so happy to receive love and attention. He adores every person and dog he meets, and he would do well with another doggie friend who can show him how awesome it is to be a young, carefree Lab!
Gilligan is so excited about his second chance.
This wonderfully sweet and loving boy had a heartbreaking start to life — he was kept in a crate for the vast majority of his days with no love or interaction from his owner. Since coming to Lab Rescue, his foster family has been working hard to show him the good life. He is doing much better with his leash skills. But now he loves to run around and play, and is learning that zigzags and straight sprints are more fun than dumb ol' circles.
