Gimli is ready to take the plunge and find his forever home. He is a handsome, laid back fella. He was surrendered when he became too much for his family, with 2 young children, to handle. Gimli has a bite history and therefore, will absolutely not be placed in a home with children!

He is a healthy guy at the age of 7. He has no ongoing health issues and does not require a lot of exercise. Gimli loves to go on walks but then after likes to take a nap! :) He is leash trained and does not require a fenced yard, so walks are a perfect form of exercise for him.

Gimli can be a guarder of things he likes and will seek negative attention if allowed. Per his foster mom, he has improved but will require a strong handler with Frenchie experience who can provide him with the ongoing consistency and leadership he requires. He will continue to need socialization and training in his forever home. However, training should be easier since Gimli is very food motivated!

He is quite the smart cookie knowing already the commands of “sit,” “stay,” and “leave it.” He is also housebroken. However, Gimli is not a lover of crates or confined spaces! He stays loose in the house and is more than happy sleeping peacefully on the couch until you come home. While it is ideal for Gimli to go to a home in which someone is home all day with him or a home in which there is someone to provide him with a mid-day break, it is not required.

For Gimli, the perfect home would include him being the only pet and the receiver of all the love from his foster family! He currently lives with other dogs, but would really prefer to have his foster family all to himself. He loves people and thrives on attention!

Gimli is very sweet and will reach up to give you kisses when he is put in his harness for a walk as well as greet you with kisses when you come home. He is very loving and needs someone who will love him in return despite his stubbornness. You must not falter when he looks up at you with those puppy dog eyes! If you know you can stay strong when Gimli puts on his charm, then Gimli may be just the guy for you.
