Yesterday morning was a pivotal moment for this incredible boy.
When Gaston came to AireCanada the information given to me was that Gaston was aggressive to other dogs.
Both his foster Mom and I felt that this was not an accurate picture of what he was about. We knew he had lived with another dog in Quebec, apparently one who bullied him and we also knew that with the right person we could show that he was able to associate with other dogs. The right person came along and from there on it was a positive experience. She brought her laid back setter and she and foster Mom took the two dogs for a walk. They walked side by side. It validated our belief that he was not dog aggressive but perhaps insecure and not properly socialized as a pup. Gaston will need some help in overcoming any concerns he might have with other dogs but he is truly an awesome boy.
Gaston is currently looking for his forever home!
