Cubby is a 6.5 year old Golden mix. Cubby is house trained, likes his crate and gets along well with his foster brother, Ignatius. He enjoys the outdoor life, currently living on a farm in southwestern Minnesota.
Cubby does have some fear of strange dogs. He was attacked at a dog park and now is very aware that not all dogs want to be his friend. Cubby is an athletic dog who will jump a four foot fence with ease. He does not want to run away, he just wants to be where his people are. Another Cubby trait is that he enjoys showering with his foster!
Cubby is pretty good at sharing his toys with his foster brother. With people, he will trade for a treat. Cubby needs practice walking on a leash, as he is a country boy and does not spend a lot of time leash walking.
Cubby has always been a dog who needs to be moving. He has had some anxiety, so his foster and the RAGOM vet decided to give him a low dose of Fluoxetine, which is helping his anxiety. He can often be found with a ball in his mouth, another tool he uses to feel calmer. Cubby enjoys riding in the car and will wait patiently while his foster runs errands.
Cubby is looking for an adopter who will help him polish his positive traits and minimize some areas that need improvement. A condition for Cubby's adoption will be a commitment to enroll Cubby in a basic obedience class. He has a lot of love to give, and is a lot of fun with his goofy, quirky, athletic personality. He will need patience and time to feel secure in his new home.
