Ube is friendly, charming, and the happiest dog to be around. If she were a human, she’d be a babysitter – careful and cautious but also kind, affectionate, and sweet.
Ube wants time to warm up to strangers she meets but has never been rude or fearful. Once she has had time to get to know someone, she is very affectionate and friendly. She has done well in most social situations and out near parks and stores, even with more hustle and bustle than usual. Ube has done well with children and other dogs and is neither submissive nor pushy. She hasn’t shown interest in chasing small animals, including cats, when she’s met them on-leash. Ube rides well in the car, has done well at the veterinarian’s office, and isn’t frightened by loud noises. She has never required more than verbal correction and she has begun to master basic obedience. Ube is fully crate trained but can react to activity happening outside of the crate if she is feeling left out. She has been destructive to bedding and toys in her crate so she should either not have access to them or be closely supervised.
Ube’s ideal home would be one where she could get a constant dose of affection whenever she requires it. She loves to play with other dogs so a home with another canine playmate is preferred. Ube would be fine either in a quieter home or one with periodic visitors. Ultimately, this easy-going girl is just looking for a soft place to land with plenty of love.
