No not a gun, even better.... He's a big boy, adopted him today from a cop up in winston salem. He brought him all the way to my house so we could meet the big guy. He's a perfect fit for us, gets along great. Turns out he's gone through gaurd dog training, doesn't like sleeping with rest of the dogs under the bed (as if he could fit), he prefers to sleep where the hallway meets kitchen and living room. When he stands up on his back legs with his paws on my shoulders, his head his above mine, and I'm 6'1". Oh and looking at the picture, you can see he likes to sit on laps.
