My name is Hobbs!
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
UPDATE 2: This guy has skills! He has been well trained by his foster family; check out his video!! **UPDATE** It seems Hobbs has turned into a total love bug. While he isn't a lap dog, he wants to be with his people and wakes us up every morning with kisses. although if he has to choose between his person and his ball he does think about it, but then chooses to be with you. (of course he would rather have both, as in you playing fetch with him) And those ears are SOOOO expressive (reminds me of Yoda sometimes). As you can see from his previous information below, Hobbs has come a long way in being more personable. His foster mom says Hobbs totally cracks her up with all his funny antics.** Self-sufficient, independent, confident & curious, our little man Hobbs can entertain himself for hours on end. Give him a ball and a space in which to play, he'll roll, toss, tear, scoot, bounce, chase & have a total ball (no pun intended)! Point in case, as I write this he's in the back yard running the ball up to the top of the hill, at which point he immediately drops it & allows it to roll down the hill & then chases it to the bottom where the fun starts all over again. LOL!! I kid you not, he is a true monologue of entertainment!! Hobbs is a great player & truly lives life to the fullest.
He's a smart little bugger of 2 yrs & 15 lbs & although he's friendly toward people, he's not the warmest blanket in the closet...and by that I mean, he's not a needy guy and although will allow you to pick him up & hold him, so if you're looking for a lap dog, keep on searching. On the other hand, if you're looking for an all about business (and he's about the business of having fun!), then you've come to the right place. Hobbs will be fine as an only dog because he's typically playing solo with his toys & balls, but he is friendly toward dogs. He does have the 'typical' feisty terrier edge, so he needs a solid leader that will be able to 'put his/her foot down' when needed. Once the rules & boundaries are established, Hobbs respects them beautifully.
I would think Hobbs might not be a bad match for a working professional since he's an independent fella. I believe he could withstand hanging alone while mom/dad is at work. As long as he has his toys & some room to shove them around & do a bit of prancing, our little man Hobbs is happy! Come meet Hobbs today!
