Gavin is a terrific dog but don't just take our word for it. He came from an overcrowded shelter in S.C. and he was a staff favorite out of scores of dogs! This large shelter reached out and said that Gavin was a personal favorite of so many of the staff at the shelter. Gavin spent much of his young life tied to someone's porch. (Yes, that is still a thing!). He is new to us but you can see from the video's how sweet this pup is when someone approached his run at the shelter and also his gentleness in meeting new people. He is a calm dog - can't we all use more of that - but will be so happy to meet you. He was also very good with all of the dogs they put him with in the crowded dog runs. Gavin is a well-mannered and gentle dog and we believe he is housetrained and good in the crate. We will update his bio soon. If you are interested in Gavin please let us know.
