Robbie is a super goofy and happy-go-lucky dog that is floppy and uncoordinated like a young puppy, but calmer than most 8 month olds. He loves playing with other dogs, but he also enjoys a good cuddle session on the couch!
Robbie is not particularly shy with new people, but he is very unsure of new situations and environments. What this means is that he’ll press himself to the floor and tuck his tail if he’s in a new place that scares him, but at the same time he still is very happy and waggy when people pet him. This makes him a mess on leash, as he often either plants himself on the ground to stay where he is, or pulls to get to where he thinks is safe. Robbie is young enough that this should be very easy to correct, but he needs an adopter who will push him out of his comfort zone and not indulge him when he refuses to move. A home with another dog would be best for Robbie, as that definitely increases his confidence. However, he could also be fine as an only dog if he is taken to daycare or a dog park on a somewhat regular basis.
Aside from needing leash training and some basic household manners, Robbie is a very easy dog. He’s pretty low-key, great in the crate, and I have yet to hear him bark or cry. He doesn’t yet know how to let you know that he needs to go out, but he’s only had one accident so far and will not soil his crate, no matter how long he is in there. Robbie has not been tested with children or cats, but he is generally very friendly and affectionate, and was not at all fixated when we saw an outdoor cat. Some of his antics hint that Robbie might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but his goofy smile and constantly wagging tail make everyone happy!
