This is Gilles Marini, one of the Texarkana 23 puppies. He was recently neutered, wormed and microchipped and is now ready to settle down into a loving forever home.

Typical of the culture of his namesake, Gilles is a big lover, yet he is also is a touch sensitive and lacks self-confidence  He is very smart boy and eager to learn and be trained which will lead to an increase in his confidence. Gilles would do best with an older dog(s) who is mellow and not overwhelming. He needs a calm household with gentle care and lots of love and attention. He will also need his forever home to have some patience because in typical Frenchie fashion, he still needs work on his potty training. The excellent news is, Gilles is crate-trained and enjoys car rides—he loves to watch the world go by outside the windows (when properly secured, of course).

Gillles is an excellent eater who loves all treats and food. He has an adorable Frenchie hop, especially when he’s about to play with three of his favorite things: Balls, squeaky toys and Nyla bones.

Gilles is a quiet boy and just wants to be near you so he can be loved on and can share all his love in return. His awesome foster mom has taken him to a few puppy classes to help him gain confidence and his forever home should continue puppy classes with a trainer that practices positive reinforcement.

As with all the Texarkana23 puppies, Gilles had a rough, scary start in life, but has put to all behind him and is ready for his forever family to welcome him home.
