Chubby is living up to his name weighing in at 65 pounds and because of it moves a little slow. He is a 8 year old super sweet, affectionate, well mannered and one very stubborn boy. He is housebroken and will let you know when he needs to go outside. He will also let you know when it is dinnertime as he gets a little whiny. He likes to roam the yard; loves to go for walks and would excel with an owner that would take him daily. He likes to hide under blankets when its nap-time and loves to nap on the sofa. Chubby is fine around other dogs and seems to really take to female dogs and female humans. Chubby is possessive over some things, will bite you if you take up his bowl while he’s eating although he is not food aggressive and eats just fine around other dogs. He will also bite if you try to make him get off the sofa. He is obsessed with shredding paper. If he gets hold of a napkin or paper and you try to take it away from him he will snarl. There is no real reason to even attempt to make him stop doing these things; you simply walk away and he will follow leaving the paper behind. Chubby's insecurities stem from his original owners children playing too rough with him. Over the past while he has been in our care, he has definitely gotten better at trusting people. He is fine around other dogs and loves to be with his humans. He should not be in a home with toddlers or young children. He would do better in a mellower, quiet house, since he is not in love with loud noises. He wants to be treated gently and sweetly with lots and lots of love! Chubby is very affectionate and especially loves the ladies. Do you have a place in your home and heart for this special boy?
