Ruff ruff! That is Rubble speak for "hello, future family!" I am a sweet little guy whose favorite activities include following my people around and cuddling with them under the blankets, and joining them for walkies around the neighborhood. I would do best in a home where someone is home more often than not to spend time with me. I also love hanging out with my doggie pals (two large-breed dogs live in my foster home) and need another dog in my forever family because I thrive with their companionship. I prefer older/calmer children because it takes me a little time to fully come out of my shell and too much excitement can overwhelm me. I'm learning so much in my foster home and would appreciate a family that will be dedicated to signing me up for training classes so I can continue to work on my confidence and learn more commands. I'm mostly potty trained (I might have a few accidents while I acclimate to my new home) and am crate trained, though I bark for a bit until I settle down because I would much rather hang out with you. If you are looking for a little dude to be your devoted shadow, I hope you fill out an adoption application soon!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
