Gavin is a 5 yr old Irish Wolfhound, who is nothing but goofy and affectionate! He is 90 lbs and needs a strong owner, willing to commit to his training. He knows basic commands very well and is currently practicing “stay”. He loves just about any toy he can find, especially bones and peanut butter filled Kongs!

He is recovering from a knee sprain and is on crate rest and meds for the next month, but it’s a great time for him to get adjusted to a new house and owner, so don’t let that keep you from checking out this fun-loving boy!
