You'll notice right away that Bubba is definitely a mix, probably with a good measure of bird dog. He certainly has a bird dog's happy attitude towards life!
Bubba came to BRBCR from an Amish farmer who is a neighbor of Bubba's foster. The farmer had been given the dog by a friend in town thinking Bubba might be happier on a farm -- that friend was mostly right. Bubba was and is a very happy boy. On the Amish farm, he was well behaved off leash with small children, other dogs, livestock, even kittens. His one vice, however, was unmanageable in a home with a large and growing young family -- he will raid unattended food and trash. His fosters have successfully avoided that issue with supervision, baby gates, and crating at night and during absences. Bubba arrived knowing and recalling to his name, knowing "sit", and walking beautifully on a loose lead. On his fosters' farm, he has quickly earned off-leash privileges and has made friends with all the resident dogs and several cats. His favorite companions are still his people -- he would love to be someone's best pal.
His foster vet estimates that Bubba is about 2 to 3 years old. He is now neutered and up to date on all vaccines and preventatives.
If you're interested in a big, goofy, happy-go-lucky sidekick, you can call Bubba's foster, Felicity Lien, at 434.547.3140 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Bubba's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
