Bubbles is a shy, loving ~ 5 month old pup. Possibly a border collie or heeler mix, she weighs ~ 30lbs & will likely be medium/large once fully grown. Bubbles entered the shelter a bit scared but after a couple of weeks, she is like a new dog. Bubbles is exceptionally smart (she''ll probably send in her application to medical school next year). She wants nothing more in life than to make people happy, is very food motivated & her confidence increases every day the more she learns. Because of this, a home who will invest in continuing to teach her new commands is where she will be a total rockstar. Bubbles ideal home would be a calm, quiet home with a loving, confident owner who doesn''t mind giving her a couple of days to settle in. Her favorite things in life are snacks, belly rubs & giving you polite kisses on your chin.
Bubbles is crate-trained & house-trained. She knows how to SIT for treats & to be petted. Bubbles also knows to SIT & WAIT at meal-time & when entering/exiting doorways/her crate. She knows the ''WATCH ME'' command to encourage her to make great eye contact. Bubbles also does a good job at coming when called, takes treats very gently from your hand & walks politely on a leash. Did we mention she learned all of these things in less than 2 weeks? To top off all of these accomplishments, Bubbles generally has good manners - she does not tend to jump up for attention & she is a very quiet dog who seldom barks. Her respectful personality means she also takes correction very easily.
Bubbles is not a high-energy pooch but because she is young, she does like daily activity. However, after some training time or an easy-going walk, long naps or settling down to chew on a bully stick while you embark on a Walking Dead weekend marathon is her specialty! She has done well with all the friendly dogs she has met & tends to be submissive when meeting new pals. She likes to play & run around at top speed with her buddies & she LOVES toys. She should do great in a home with another confident, middle-aged, kind dog who she could look to for guidance but would also likely do fine in a home of her own. Because of her quiet, shy nature, loud, screaming children in the home would not be a great fit - older, calm teenagers would be best.
Bubble''s adoption fee is only $75; she is available to adopt through Humane Society of Central Texas in Waco, TX; 254-754-1454. Her ID# is A075169. Bubbles is spayed, current on vaccinations & microchipped.
