Goober

Hey there, Goobs here! Donít worry, Goober is not my real name but it fits sometimes when I get to playing. I am a large, tall, goofy, fun, lovable 3.5 year old male that weighs 70-75 pounds. Iím a big boy but I am a gentleman.

I live with a female Boxer and two Chihuahuas. I have been getting along with my Boxer foster sister and really enjoy playing with her. I just pretty much ignore those little dogís, theyíre no fun because I canít play with them. My previous owners had plenty of cats that lived outside with me so I am use to being around cats and just ignore them also. I do get kind of excited when people come over to visit but I donít jump on them.

I have learned my boundaries and know to just eat and drink in my own area and have found my place in the pack. I am willing to go into my crate when you need to leave me alone for a while, just as long as I have my Kong filled with peanut butter to keep me occupied. I donít have any bad habits and love going out and playing so I would do best in a home that can keep me active and I would love to have a playmate (human or dog) that would play with me a lot. I also need a fenced in yard so I can run around and I love going for walks and car rides. I would probably do well in a home with older children. You just have to understand that when I get to playing with another dog or with my toys I can get a little carried away and not pay attention, so I could knock young children down. I can also jump about 3-4 feet in the air from a standing position. Oh and I almost forgot to mention this, and donít laugh, every once in a while I try to chase that little nub they call a tail, but I never seem to catch it.

My foster parents canít believe that I wonít get onto the couches or beds unless I am invited up and had to go out and buy me my own bed to sleep on (which everyone else wants to sleep on it now) so you will have to be willing to buy me my own bed too. I can follow commands such as sit, come here, down and stay, pretty well. I do okay on the leash and only pull for the first couple of minutes when I go for walks. I follow my foster dad everywhere when heís home, and I do mean everywhere, so he thinks Iím a manís dog but I do listen to my foster mother when I have too. I am house broken and sleep out of my crate during the night.

So if you want to know my real name and want to get to know me more, Iíll ask my foster family to consider you for my adoption after you have filled out an application and are approved. I am being fostered by Eric and Kim in Gainesville, FL area.
