Labrador Retriever Mix
Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Gil is a sweet, affable, easy going guy who is eager to please and loves to learn new things. He likes to play and loves the people. Gil was dumped in the country with a collar with no tags embedded in his neck. He stood in the same spot in the middle of a country road for 6 hours waiting for his people to come back for him. Gil's story is common in the country, dogs like him are a dime a dozen to the rural folks and when they get tired of feeding them they leave them out to die or for someone to find, and they obviously don't care which. It is mind boggling that such a wonderful dog like Gil could be treated like that when he is the most loving, optomistic, devoted dog in the world, one who would die in the spot where his owners left him rather than to believe they would not come back. Odds are against big, black, male dogs getting adopted, but for Gil's sake we sure hope he is the exception to the rule. He deserves a GREAT family. Gil is a male Lab mix. He was born 02/08 and weighs 47 pounds.
