Cubby is a gorgeous boy who has been waiting for a family for a while. He recently has been working with a trainer and is doing well. He is good on leash but we have been working on his reactivity on leash. Cubby does not like to interact with other dogs much. He's not the type of dog that will enjoy going to a dog park. He prefers to bond with his humans and play in the yard with them instead. He loves to play fetch and loves toys. He will need an experienced adopter who will recognize that he doesn't want to meet every dog that they see. He has learned many commands and will listen to his handler attentively. Cubby will do best as an only dog in a family where he can be the center of attention. Cubby is full of love to offer. He absolutely loves to snuggle and go for car rides. He gets excited thinking about what his next adventure may be. If you're looking to bond with a dog, Cubby would be a good candidate. Because of his prey drive, he's not good with cats. Approved for kids 10 and up..
