About Gunter

Gunter is black and tan male doberman at a rural shelter in Campbell County VA. Gunter is neutered, current with vaccines and HW testing; great with other dogs and kids, house trained and will appreciate being a couch potato after living as an outdoor farm dog, hanging out in a dog lot. 

His story is like a fairy tale, rags to riches, and he is truly blossoming now that he’s in the care of a foster mom who is helping him develop confidence. His first public outing was recently at an adoption event, and he was nervous when he was introduced to the retail world on a big scale! From a nervous, unsure, unsocialized fellow to a happy boy who became outgoing and seeking out attention from the folks who stopped by, we saw a new dog, confident enough to take treats from kids and adults, and finally holding his head high as he paraded through the store!

He’s a Doberman you will love for his gentle personality and laid back attitude! Are you ready? This pet has been posted by Friends of Campbell County Animal Control, Rustburg, VA. For questions about the pet, please email us at All adoptions begin with an application, found under the 'Animals' tab on our website, .

Please note that we do not promote dog adoptions to homes where an invisible fence is the fencing of choice.
