Nobody puts Baby in a corner! This gorgeous young dude is always at the heart of the action, a social butterfly who loves hanging out with his lady friends, catching (and promptly chowing down on) any kind of toy you throw at him, receiving petting or munching on treats (he sits for them too!) and eagerly exploring the great wide world, spreading sunshine and finding fun wherever he goes. Dressed to impress in a coat of silky blond fur, Baby is a cool, confident guy who can totally pull off his ‘girly’ name and he relishes the attention of admirers both in his kennel and out. You’ll always find him dashing to the door with puppy-ish enthusiasm yet he sits politely to be leashed and never tries to play with the rope–this guy knows exactly what real toys look like! Baby may have arrived as a stray but with his happy manners and healthy good looks, he has ‘pet’ written all over him. He keeps a clean and tidy den, seems to be quite house trained and is smart enough to learn a whole host of commands from his new parents. All it takes is a willing teacher, a little time and of course, some tasty rewards to seal the deal! Baby had an altercation with another dog in the past and while he’s shown no aggression during his stay with us, his intense focus on fellow pups means he’ll need some time to settle in as your one and only and probably further guidance on approaching dogs in the same playful way he does with his human friends. If you’re an experienced adopter looking for a fun and funny BFF, a clever playmate, a friendly snuggle buddy or even a beautiful piece of arm candy then today is your lucky day–Baby is all that and more! Only 2 years old and ready to take on the world, this lovable lug is looking for a forever home today, don’t miss the chance to make him yours!
Baby is at the front of his kennel, loose and wagging when the handler approaches. He is easily leashed but pulls hard to get outside. He pulls hard to greet dogs once he is outside and is difficult to distract. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Baby had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. He was not interested in toys. Baby rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test with his tail high, stiff body, head tall, and ears erect.
Baby shows a bit of concern during the dog to dog interaction. According to our enrichment team Baby is difficult to distract from other dogs. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
