From my foster carer
Bob makes me laugh everyday, definitely the funniest the dog I've had the pleasure of fostering. He's a happy, out-going and kind natured dog. Providing he gets plenty of off-lead exercise everyday he's very well-behaved and responsive to hand signal commands. He does like to be the center of attention, a wonderful combination of playfulness and affection. He's hard work but so worth it!
Notes
Bob has mild balance and coordination problems which means he can't navigate stairs or jump on/off high sofas or beds, and struggles to walk on unfamiliar or smooth/slippery surfaces. He will sometimes put on the brakes on walks, especially when walking in an area he's not used to. He will also eat items he shouldn't like discarded chewing gum, stones, mud, litter etc. and has to be closely monitored to prevent him doing so. Bob will need a patient owner who is willing to commit to a special needs dog.
