Captain Chubby Tubbs, Chubbs, was named because he had a delicious round puppy belly. However, he should be renamed Noodle - because he's growing into his athletic, agile, lean and leggy potential! He will be on the larger side of standard Mals.
He's a social butterfly, loves a good romp or bitey face session (with dogs who like that), and has some practice hanging out on restaurant patios. No cat experience, but has been around chickens. Would likely be gentle-child friendly (with supervision for all). He's also at the Jekyll/Hyde stage of puppyhood: it's time for a nap when those teeth take over!
Like most Malinios, he's whip smart and loves a great learning session. He's fast - F A S T - and would love to live with a person/family who will help him live up to his sport potential. He's independent and can entertain himself, but doesn't mind a few seconds of cuddles before heading out for more sniffing, jumping, biting, and exploring.
He'd be a good SAR or scentwork dog (the nose knows!)...he's going to need ongoing work/training - the whole litter is at the very busy end!
All puppies will require a Spay/Neuter addendenum with a $500 deposit. This is refundable when the adopter shows confirmation of Spay/Neuter at 6 months of age.
