We met Gunner’s mom, Cyndi, over Instagram, and you can see why he was the perfect pooch to serve as our November PoochieStar! She shared a bit about him with us:
Meet Gunner, our loving and lazy French Bulldog. Gunner was born June 7, 2014, and from the first time we saw him when he was just a few days old, we knew he was destined to be ours. Even though he was the runt of the litter there was something special about him.
We adopted him and brought him to his forever home in August. He instantly became part of the family. We quickly learned that the way to his heart was through his stomach. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for a treat. Gunner has proven to be a very smart dog (and not at all stubborn). He picked up the concept of the PoochieBells® within days, which made our lives as new puppy parents so much easier. It was also a fun way for our three kids to learn when he needed to go out. I work from home so it makes it very easy for me to know when he needs a “break” too. We still use them and truly don’t know what we would do without them.
Over this last year Gunner has gotten into his fair share of puppy trouble; eating trash, escaping from his crate like Houdini, tearing toys to shreds (there isn’t a toy out there that this dog can’t destroy). And through all of this, not one “accident” thanks to PoochieBells®!
Like most kids he plays and naps hard, and eats a lot. He is loving, gentle, fun, and a bit goofy at times. He loves to chase the kids and wrestle, but always knows when he’s being too rough. He loves to play ball and Frisbee (when he’s not destroying them). He likes to go for walks, meet new people (as long as it’s not the vet), and he loves to lick people’s feet (it’s an unhealthy obsession). He is a family man and likes to eat dinner with everyone every night; he’s the only dog I know that will save his food until we all sit down to eat together. But his most favorite thing to do is to snuggle. We couldn’t have asked for a better dog; he completes our family perfectly and we all adore him.
