Hi I'm Gibbs. Some wonderful people found me as a stray and although my nails and teeth looked good and I was wearing a collar my owners never came to claim me.

Those first couple of days I was worried but I settled down and have been doing great in my temporary home. My finders have two Labradors. I am great with the young female and fine with the senior male but sometimes I don't want to share the attention with him. The friend who actually caught me has a tiny little dog who I have been fine with as well.

I am housebroken and can be left at home. I am good on the leash and do great with just a 30 minute walk and some ball playing everyday (I love the ball). I like to be part of the family and I am really learning what it's like to go to lots of places. My new friends from BAGSR met me in a busy park and we took a long walk together. They said I was great passing other dogs, fine sitting next to the busy kids playground and that I did a great job with all the distractions. I did not chase geese or even pay attention to passing little dogs. 

I can lay quietly by my people while they visit and I load nicely in to the car for rides.

I am loving the good food my finders feed to me and the great walks we do together everyday. Being a full family member is a wonderful feeling! I do get slightly anxious in new settings - you may not even notice but I may be a little cautious while I get my bearings. I am a GSD and I am watching my surroundings all the time. I am attentive, responsive and relational. If you know GSD's then I am your boy. I am out of that silly puppy stage so I don't chew things up or whine at night. I sleep nicely in the house and I am a fabulous companion.

I am neutered, have all my vaccinations and my own new microchip! The vet guessed my age to be around 5 and I weigh 75 lbs. I have nice moderate energy and I am really looking for someone who loves Shepherds and knows how great it can be to love and be loved by a mature boy like me.  I am a reserved gentleman who takes treats nicely and will give soft kisses once I know you. I am not the kind of boy who jumps all over you and slobbers on your face.

I will be waiting for you at my foster home in the East Bay.
