Bu Bu takes a few days to bond with humans in a new environment. As a puppy, Bu Bu was rescued from the killing pound to treat a bite wound from a large dog. He would therefore bark at intact male adult dogs who get too close to him without warning. Although unsure outside, he just avoids confrontations and stays close to his humans. He’s calm and easy-going at home but would need a small secured fenced yard for best transition. He’s looking for experienced shy dog owners with a moderately active lifestyle and can provide further socialization with people and dogs.
