History: Bobby needed rescue from an unfortunate situation. He is a darling boy that has won our hearts. He is hoping to find a family of his own!
A note from the foster: Bobby is a great pup! He is incredibly sweet and eager to learn. He is treat-motivated and learns quickly. He is now sleeping through the night in his crate or in the dog bed next to our bed, with no crying or accidents, and he loves to cuddle. He also loves wrestling with my dogs, and he never met a toy he didn’t like! He is pretty mellow in the house, but outside has a ton of energy and loves to run and chase things.
Bobby has a very strong prey instinct when he’s outside. His hound breeding definitely shows, because he’s very focused on squirrels, birds, and rabbits, and he wants to give chase. He will need a fenced yard, and at this point needs to be leashed at all times. We are doing lots of treat-training and he is slowly learning to focus on his human instead of what he wants to chase. He’s a good little learner. Bobby also loves to play with kids and would do well in a family setting, as long as the family has time to give him the training and attention he needs so he stays focused on his humans.
*Our young puppies are considered dog, people and cat friendly unless otherwise noted. If there is a strong personality trait that is shown this early, we will post an additional note.
