Chubby ~ in Virginia

Looking for a Home

Hi, I'm Chubby from Virginia! Now what kind of a name is that I bet you're wondering?? Well I weigh 18 pounds...but I'm not really chubby, I'm just a big boy. I am a 10 year old puppy, ok well I'm not really a puppy but I love to run and play like one. Fetch is my favorite game and I'm really good at it! Can you see me sitting nice in the picture?

I am looking for a new home because my family had a baby and I did not like that baby thing, no sir, not one bit! My foster mom says it is very important that I should go to a home where there are no babies or young children. I agree! So if you have kids under 10, then I am not the dog for you! Now having said that I do think older children are pretty cool. I get along real good with the boy in my foster home, he is very nice and likes to play fetch with me. Maybe I can have a nice boy or girl in my new home?

I am sort of a timid guy, and I dont like a lot noise and fuss. If people start to get loud, banging doors, yelling and such, I run for cover. I will come out in time, but I really don't like it when things get sort of chaotic and out of control. I am shy with new people at first but once I see your ok then I'm all tail wags and kisses. I do not like to be picked up strangers, I get really scared. My foster mom say's my new family will need to understand and respect this. I will come around, just let me get to know you first!

I'm not quite ready to go to my new home yet as these nice folks say I have to get up to date on my shots and have my teeth cleaned. I'm also going to get a microchip....I dont know what that is but I guess it's a good thing? My foster mom says I'm a real smart boy and quick learner. I am housebroken and like to ride in a car - I will stay in a crate, but am not used to it and don't much care for it. I get along fine with the other dogs in my foster home but I'd much rather hang out with the humans. I am not cat tested. I know my foster family will miss me... but I would really like to have a home of my own. So if you're lookin' for a nice boy then please apply for me, Chubby!
