Loves his humans <3

Gibson is an incredibly sooky dog. He loves nothing more than to be curled up at your feet wherever you are or tucked up in bed with you on a lazy Sunday morning. He bonds quickly with his people, and he will become your shadow if you let him! Although, we're sure his big, soft eyes will win you over in a heartbeat.
Gibson is learning to play with toys and is getting good at bringing them back to you so you can throw them for him. He has previously lived with other dogs (male & female, all medium - large sized) and did very well! The other dogs gave him confidence to grow, and we'd love to see him paired with another playful dog.
He is very relaxed around the house and settles well when left for short amounts of time. He does get anxious when left for long periods, so he does need a home where he will have human company for most of the day or be able to accompany you to work!
Gibson came to DBBR after walking onto a mine camp up in the northwest. He was lucky enough to be rescued by a foster carer working at the site and flown to Perth. At the camp, he had a rough time where we believe he was abused and this has left him nervous of children in particular. Because of this, we are looking for an adult-only home or a home with dog-savvy teens.
All of our dogs are sterilised, vaccinated, and microchipped prior to their adoption being finalised.
