Update: Gavin has found a forever home in Toronto. Yay!
Gavin, rescued from a highkill shelter in Korea, is a quiet, medium-energy boy. He recenly graduated from a behavioral rehabilitation and training course at Doggytime Canine Care & Rescue.
Gavin loves playing with toys, listening to music, belly rubs, and lots of snuggles. He listens well but can be stubborn and therefore needs a confident handler who won’t cave in to how cute he is! Gavin does very well with repetition exercises and games. He has come a long way in a short amount of time and now only needs to find his special people who will continue with rules and boundaries, walks and brain exercises. Small dogs like Gavin are more prone to developing patella issues, and as such the vet has recommended some daily at-home physio exercises that can be done to help prevent the issue (we’ll show you how!). He would benefit from a multiple short walks per day vs. fewer long walks. It would also be very beneficial for Gavin to continue being fed a Raw Diet with the supplements I’ve mentioned above.
