11 mo old neutered yellow male, 83 lbs
Bubba is a happy, super sweet boy who is also very smart. He’s your classic young lab with a fabulous temperament. He has a great personality, is very easy going, and totally enjoys being with his people. In fact, he loves everyone he meets. He pays close attention and wants to engage with everything you do. Bubba was surrendered because he developed the bad habit of chasing the neighbor’s horses. Since his property wasn’t fenced, he could get out to do that and his owner was afraid he’d get hurt (to say nothing about the complaints from the horses’ owner). Bubba is a great looking boy. He’s big but not overweight. He’s a heavy shedder but has a beautiful soft coat. His eyes speak to you!! Bubba is completely house trained and has good house manners. He likes his dog beds and sleeps on a dog bed through the night. He doesn’t try to get on the furniture. He adores toys and carries one around with him all the time. He’ll bring you a toy, hoping he can get you to play with him. Bubba is also a good retriever, but he’s not avid about it. He loves to swim and is great in the car, riding quietly and happily. Bubba is a talker and when excited, talks a lot. Bubba is good with other dogs. He does get very excited when meeting other dogs and pulls on the leash. He might also bark some in excitement. But it’s all because he wants to play. Bubba is unknown with cats and since he likes to chase horses, we don’t think cats should be in his future. He’s good with kids and spent time with the owner’s 4 year old grandchild. We think he’d be fine with kids age 5 and older (if they’re sturdy). He’s a big boy and can jump up on occasion if he gets excited, but he is incredibly sweet. Bubba is very affectionate and lovable and one of those dogs that you immediately bond with. He’s a real character. He knows sit but needs leash training. If there are no people or dogs around, he walks on a loose leash, but crosses back and forth in front of you, trying to take in all the new smells. If there’s a person or dog coming, he pulls because he wants to go greet them. As always, we want Bubba to go to a home where someone is around most of the time. He’s a wonderful boy and we’re looking for just the right family for him.
