He's an 8 year old lab mix named Bubbles, Bubs for short, from Georgia. He's a wonderful dog, no aggressive behaviors. Gets along with all the dogs that I have introduced him to. He gets along great with my cat, he's actually afraid of her but sometimes tries to play appropriately with her. He loves older kids. He likes all kids really but he seems to be afraid of our 10 month old. He just gets up and walks away when our baby goes over to pet him. He pulls significantly when on the leash but we use a gentle lead with him and it helps. He doesn't like it lol but it does help with the pulling. He's definitely a dope and when he sees other people or dogs while walking he wants to play so he will try to dart but that's where the gentle lead comes in handy. I have noticed that he tends to bark at men but he has never been aggressive. He loves to lay next to you on the couch or bed but isn't much of a super snuggler. He does have extreme separation anxiety/hyper-attachment syndrome which makes it almost impossible to leave him home alone. He has an extreme aversion to the kennel. Immediately pants and drools. He broke out of all the kennels we have tried, including one that was deemed 'inescapable'. I'm not sure if he will ever be comfortable in a kennel, it's clear that his previous owners over kenneled him. He will most likely hyper attach to someone in the house, most likely female. This will present as constantly following you around anywhere you are, sit and whine in your face for attention, whine even after giving attention, immediately start panting and pacing when you start getting ready to leave, all the behaviors of separation anxiety when he is alone, for example urinating in the house, property destruction, tear through the trash and any food left out. He absolutely needs to be on some sort of anxiety medication but because his previous owners had him on too many meds, he's very hard to get the meds in. He's not food motivated that we have noticed and he will sniff out the pill if you put it in food like cheese or sandwich meat. He is very smart and has refused the peanut butter knowing there were meds in it. We have had some success with putting in it wet food. He's currently prescribed fluoxitine/Prozac and was on trazadone before. The Prozac ended up amplifying his anxiety so I stopped it. He will play with toys but seems to prefer to play with hands after a while. He's gentle enough and will listen when you say ouch or all done. We have tried to just play with toys because we didn't want him playing like that with our kids. He likes the idea of going for a ride but doesn't really like the car, will whine during the trip. He wants to be with you all the time but prefers to be at home. He does play hard with other dogs which tends to be tricky at the dog park but like I said he's not an aggressive dog. He does get some rashes during spring and fall and his ears can be touch and go.
