Cubby • Male • 8 months • Adopted!  Please return to
 the Home page to start your search for available dogs!  Thank you!

CUBBY is an 8 month old, 40 pound male BC who is all about being a big puppy. He is sweet, soft and goofy and is everything a young dog should be and more. CUBBY has all the fun and playfulness of a young boy and none of the bad habits. He is potty trained and sleeps quietly in his crate at night, but would be very happy if you let him sleep with you instead. He has been known to steal a sock out of the clothes basket but he does not chew it, just collects them. He has not been destructive in any way, he just wants to play and be loved.  

CUBBY loves to play with other dogs and would do great in a home with a companion dog. His herding instinct comes out when all the dogs run together and he will nip at ankles a bit but not overly so. He also loves to play with the cats. He is not aggressive at all, but if they run he will chase and if they want to play then he is game! There is a young kitten in his foster home and the two of them love to play but the older cats get a little annoyed by his antics. Dog savvy cats would be best.

CUBBY is a medium energy dog and requires daily exercise but he also settles down well in the house after a good walk or run. He loves to play with plush toys, but hasn't shown much interest in a ball, just the dog who is chasing the ball. CUBBY walks well on a leash with minimal pulling. He knows sit, but he needs to work on his recall and other basic commands. He is a little fearful of getting in the car, but ones he is in he rides fine. CUBBY is very food motivated and will do great with additional training. 

CUBBY can be a little shy at times and would do best in a home where he can build some confidence and where his humans use a gentle touch. He loves to cuddle on the couch or follow you around the house and be your velcro dog. CUBBY is ready to be part of the family!

CUBBY is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
