Bubba ARPH #14407
If you're looking for a fun-loving ball of typical young Aussie energy who is full of love to match, Bubba is your guy! Bubba is a one-and-a-half-year-old 46-pound Black Tri who was dearly loved by his previous family, but because of their situation, realized that Bubba needed a new home. Bubba’s eagerness to please and his affectionate nature will put a smile on your face. He loves people, and he loves toys. He will play fetch with you until the cows come home. He is also a very gentle tug of rope and Wubba player. Bubba really does want to be everyone's friend.
Bubba knows his basic commands and is house and crate trained. Bubba has excellent recall. He is very treat motivated and has great eye contact, helping to make further obedience and trick training a breeze. Foster parents relay, "Bubba is just a sweet, sweet dog. He will bring rope toys to you to play tug, balls to play fetch, and when he's done, he'll jump on the couch and rest his head in whatever lap is available. He loves playing with our dogs, and, when his energy is all spent, will happily chill. He also loves to keep his foster dad company while he's working by lying at his feet."
Bubba is looking for a home where he gets to play with other dogs, either a resident dog(s) or a daycare/visiting dog would be idea. Bubba will also do well in a home with dog friendly cats with proper introductions. He is a young dog, so training for obedience, leash walking and for bonding is expected as it is with most all the dogs in our program. A physical fence is a requirement.
Bubba is being fostered in the Central Indiana area. If you are an approved ARPH adopter with a current application on file and interested in learning more about Bubba, please contact [email protected]. If you are not but are interested in becoming an approved ARPH adopter, please submit an adoption application. Please refrain from contacting members of our organization or asking about specific dogs/potential matches until after your screening process has been completed and approved.
Once ARPH receives your application, we will contact you by email. If you do not respond to our email, we will not continue with the processing of your application. Please be patient--it may be several days or a week or so before you hear back from one of our volunteers. Most ARPH volunteers have jobs, as well as families and their own dogs in which to tend. This is a labor of love for us all, and we work very hard to be responsive as possible to potential adopters and Aussies in need. Please note that after you have submitted an adoption application, you should receive a confirmation screen. Please also know that the Indiana/Illinois chapter receives ONLY the application of applicants who live in our territory.
