Gilbert (also known as Bo) is a 4-year- old, 70lb. Black Lab mix. He is very loyal and only asks for a belly rub in return. He likes to play tug of war, chase his tennis ball and chew on a good bone. Gilbert is looking for his forever home and would be well suited in a place with room to run in a fenced yard. He is good with kids and warms up to everyone. Gilbert knows many basic commands like sit, lay and shake. He is house trained and does not have accidents. Gilbert would benefit from a family that will continue his training, working with him to become a good Canine Citizen. Gilbert enjoys being 'Top Dog' and would love to find a family where he is the star of the show, the apple of the families eye!! He enjoys all of the attention and would benefit in being the center of attention. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee).
