Goober is a kind old soul. He's a social loving buddy. He likes kids attention, he'll say hi to anyone big, small, young, old, male, female, his love doesn't discriminate. He's also good with cats and gets along with other dogs regardless of size or gender.

We must admit he is a little shy at first with big dogs but once they say hi, he's ready to play tag. He is good on leash and enjoys walks at sunset. He knows a few commands like sit, stop, stay, and go. He has never shown aggression of any type. He doesn't guard food nor toys.

He'll make you laugh in sadness, console you in grief or simply keep you company in happy times. Goober is the whole package, if we had more money to care for his health we would definitely keep him.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
