Pet of the week - Gunnar shepherd

Name: Gunnar, as in singer Gunnar Nelson (one of Rick Nelson's twin sons), and MMA fighter Gunnar Nelson (different guy, not the singer).

Birthdate: November 7, 2016. I'm just entering the prime of my life. Look out world, Gunnar is coming for you!

Ethnicity: I'm a shepherd mix fella. I weigh a solid 78 pounds of twisted steel and good looks. I'm a real man's man, I mean, for a dog. I am "fixed" and house trained! I will stand by the door when I need to go outside. I know "sit" and "stay" and "fetch" and several other Dog Training 101 commands. I'm good with big dogs and big kids.

My former owner (boo!) had to give me up because he lives in an apartment, and I'm not an apartment kind of pooch. I'm a sweet boy who will steal your heart if you give me half a chance. In other words, get me outta here!

Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, February 15 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
