“Well, that’s a little harsh. He’s not a punk. He might be a bit of a… goof, but he’s not a punk.” – Bubbles, Trailer Park Boys

Bubbles is our Pup of the Week!

Introducing Bubbles! This striking young man is about 10 months old and currently weighs 50 pounds. He still has a bit of growing to do, so we expect him to top out at between 60-65 pounds. Bubbles has a winning smile and joyful personality that he’s hoping will win over his future forever family.

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Aside from one little accident Bubbles had on his first night with us, he has had NONE since then and is well on his way to “officially house-trained” status. Crate-training, on the other hand, seems to be a new practice for Bubbles, but he is starting to get the hang of that too! He may quietly protest for a few minutes but after that, he settles in for a nap until it’s playtime again. Bubbles is very new around here but his foster dad was impressed with just how quickly he learned his “sit” command. He also knows what “wait” means… but that one is just so hard for excited pups like Bubbles! It’s a work in progress. Keep up the good work, buddy!

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Bubbles lives with two dog friends right now. His smaller foster sibling barked at him right away, so that was a little scary. The larger foster sibling though is more Bubble-sized and after Bubbles got over some momentary shyness, these two are best buds! These two love wrestling with each other, but when his companion has had enough play for the time being, Bubbles takes the hint and settles in for a nap (until it’s time for round two!).

Behavior around People

Bubbles is a little shy at first and submissive, but after a few minutes, he is a wiggly happy pup that is ready to bathe you in kisses.

Exercise Needs

Bubbles has pretty standard “older puppy energy.” He’s not overly hyper but the boy sure does love to play. Other than playtime with his foster siblings, Bubbles also goes on a couple walks per day. Playdates and regular walks will likely be sufficient exercise for this guy.

Bubbles has a charming underbite with a winning smile. He’s a happy and smart boy that is so eager to please. Think you’ve got the perfect place in your family for Bubbles? Contact us today!
