“Gunner is an energetic, intelligent young man who loves to show off his tricks for treats and shower his friends in kisses,” said Gina Hardter, a spokesperson for the AWLA, who says he is currently her favorite pet at the shelter. “I’m trying to teach him the command, ‘Give kisses,’ but he loves to kiss so much that he’s already way ahead of me.”
Two-year-old Gunner and a few of his canine companions came to Alexandria from a shelter in Louisiana that was impacted by Hurricane Zeta in October. He’s currently undergoing heartworm treatment, which AWLA will complete at no cost to the family that adopts him.
“If you have a lap, you can bet Gunner wants to be in or near it,” Hardter said.
If you want to buy Gunner or his fellow adoptees a holiday gift, AWLA is asking for pet presents in its (Stocking) Stuff the Van event. The event takes place on Dec. 24 with virtual and in-person options.
