Hello! My name is Bubba and I am 7-year-old Terrier Mix and weigh about 35 pounds. I am a very loving boy but I need to be introduced to new people and animals slowly. Once introduced properly I am a big old love bug and I can't get enough of my loved ones! I hope to find a family that understands my history and who will be patient with me while I learn to trust.
I was surrendered to FCHS when my owner was diagnosed with a medical condition that required her to move to an assisted living facility and she couldn't take me with her. While at her house I was under socialized and did not get a lot of exposure to people or other animals. Because of this I am very nervous when meeting strangers and new animals. My owner's family tried to help me out but unfortunately their HOA did not allow them to have any more dogs. That is how I found myself here, at my foster mom's house.
There is always a lot going on at this new house. I have lots of foster siblings to spend time with and a big back yard to romp around in (though I can't be left unattended because I am an escape artist). My foster mom thinks she is a genius because she found a way to keep me from crawling under the fence... She makes me wear the cone of shame when I am in the back yard and it is soooo embarrassing. I know the other dogs make fun of me behind my back but my foster mom says she must do it to keep me safe! She also has a long lead in the front yard that I go on a lot. I definitely need to go to a home with a 6-foot privacy fence or where I will be walked on a regular basis because if not, I will find a way to escape.
I am crate trained and I have lots of energy. I do well with other dogs (once introduced properly) but would not mind being an only dog so I can get all the attention! I've never bitten anyone but my foster mom thinks that if I were nervous enough I may nip someone out of fear. It takes me a few minutes to warm up to people (because I have always had the same owner and didn't see a lot of strange faces) but once I do warm up, I absolutely love belly rubs (they are my favorite). When I meet new people I like for them to sit next to my crate for a minute or two and to feed me treats and talk to me in a nice, calm voice. This helps me trust new people! I also like to meet dogs through the crate! I have been tested with cats and I absolutely CANNOT go to a home with kitties. They are too enticing and all I want to do is chase them!
I need to work on my leash manners... I am a little spazy and get over excited when going on walks but am getting better little by little. My foster mom's dogs are teaching me the ropes! I know how to sit and am a very smart boy!
I am neutered, UTD on all vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, and am currently on heartworm prevention and flea and tick prevention. I would make a great addition to the right family.
