He has as much energy as you want him to have. He will be mellow, or be playful when you want. He is just as happy on a jaunt, as lounging in a doggie bed.
He gets along well with other dogs, loves walks and car rides. He goes out of the dog door, but can't figure out how to get in. He doesn't bark, and will do a "cry" when he wants back in. He doesn't mind the cats, squirrels or ducklings that have taken up residence here.
When he is sleeping, he doesn't like to be startled. He may growl, but it's not an aggressive growl, it is a "why did you disturb me?" growl. He doesn't like his face washed, but will eventually give in. (My Cockers get eye drops, so we have face wash time). I use a red wash cloth, and he knows when the red wash cloth comes out it is face time.
He sleeps in the upper corner of the bed. He will move over when asked to do so. He just wants to be loved. He knows basic commands, sit, stay, down.
Robbie is about 7 years old and great with other dogs. He loves everyone he meets but would do best in an adult only semi active home. Robbie is being fostered in Santa Barbara. You can fill out an application on line at secondchancecockerrescue.org if you would like to meet him.
