Chubbs is a dog who is in love with life. He adores chasing balls (please don't expect them returned until you teach him the meaning of fetch though..:-)), exploring his world when out for a walk or run, and then settling down for all kinds of cuddling and love. He's not above telling you that you are not nearly finished with the belly rubs and assorted loving touches should you stop too soon!
Chubbs is a people-pleasing ball full of love. He should take to training easily and is going to want to be an active participant in the life of his forever family. He has shown appropriate interest in other dogs he meets. He has not been observed with cats. He's a strong boy with an athletic body who would likely be a great running, hiking or walking buddy but will happily run off a lot of energy chasing those balls.
Chubbs can be a bit territorial, so he will do best in an adult-only home with adopters who will teach him all those things dogs want to know to be great citizens of the canine world. It doesn't hurt that he's very treat-oriented making training even more fun for you both!
If you would like to play and cuddle to your heart's content with an appreciative, happy, goofy, adorable wonderful young dog who would like nothing more than to be yours forever, please come meet Chubbs real soon!
