Well hello there, I am Gulliver! I hope that you could be my forever family, I have been waiting a very long time so I really hope that YOU are the one!

Let me tell you about myself. I can easily trick you into believing that I am a grumpy dog, but in reality I am a BIG cuddle bug who loves bum scratches and biscuits. Combine the two and we will be best friends for life!

I am a big boy, as you can probably tell by my mug-shots… sorry I mean head shots 😉 I am not a very active guy but I do love having a fur-friend to play with. I am always first to initiate a chasing game but it doesnt last long, I get tired pretty quickly, if I have to be honest 🙂 I really enjoy going for walks even though I cant go for looooooong walks, unless you are willing to pack a picnic basket and set aside the whole day for a slow stroll around the block. I am really not in any rush, ever.

The humans at Dogtown are giving me meds in my food (they think I dont know) to help with my back legs and hips, I do suffer from a bit of arthirtis, especially when it’s cold. But keeping me warm and comfortable really helps, you should see my in my stylish winter jacket!

I love treats, I am a bit lazy when it comes to training but I am happy to sit and look at you until you give me treats, hehe. I am pretty easy to keep happy, I dont need much entertainment. Just a lap to get comfortable on and a fur-friend to play with .. oh and some treats…. what else does one really need?

I am a social boy and I get along with pretty much all the dogs I meet. I also lived with a cat in my first home so I dont mind those feline creatures too much. In terms of kids, I would be OK in a home with older kids who understand that climbing on dogs and tugging ears is not ok.

Please come and meet me, I will steal your heart (and your treats) – guaranteed.
