Goober - 2 years old (Fostered in Raleigh, NC)


Goober loves to play with his toys and people if not with other dogs; Likes to bite and chew as he plays and will use his paws to play as well. will roll around on his back a lot and run in the large yard. He jumps like Tigger which is so funny to see, especially if I am doing yard work and pushing the wheel barrow. He talks a lot and will let you know when he is not happy about your decisions to eat dinner, go to bed or tell him no. He will rest and calm down when everyone else does. He sleeps through the night and not make any noise to wake you up in the morning, just waits patiently until we get up to get him out.

He will sit very nicely on his rug until he is told he can come to his bowl to eat and working on ringing a bell to go outside. He is learning how to fetch, but mostly will chase whatever you throw and just lay and chew on it. He adores his blanket and will lay on it more than his cozy bed.
He is very sweet and will sit , lay down and stay (for a little bit anyway). He plays with other dogs great! We haven't seen him with small dogs, but does very well with mid to large dogs. He doesn't react to cats with barking or growling, but will stare intensely and try to get their tails and legs as if they are another dog to play with. We wish he would sniff them and try to get to know them, but he is just not there yet. With training, he would likely be very good with cats.

He loves to get up on furniture and believes everything (pillows and such) are his toys, so we are working to teach him some boundaries.
Goober certainly lives up to his name. He loves to put his butt in the air and his head to the ground when he his playing and just falls over himself. he does run into things and people when he is zooming.
