Training: Gibby understands how to walk well on a leash.

Yard requirements: This energetic pup requires a fenced-in yard to keep him contained and safe, as he is very alert and motivated by any kind of movement when outdoors.

Kids: Great with kids.

Dogs and cats: Gibby is good with certain dogs but not great with cats.

Health issues: None.

His story: Gibby was found as a stray and brought to Wood County Humane on Dec. 3, 2015. He was adopted but wasn’t a good match with the other dog in the home, so he was returned.

His ideal forever home: Gibby would do best with an active family willing to spend a lot of time with him outdoors so he can explore, run, dig, and work off his energy.
