"We gonna play or we gonna cuddle?!"

Nimbus is a high energy guy who's always on the move and is a big fan of hiking and jogging. He loves tug of war and playing fetch most of all, but he's also happy to snuggle with his people when he sees its chill time. Nimbus is a huge cuddler, and every night on sleepovers, he HAS to be touching a part of his person. And if you're moving around the house, Nimbus is sure to be following like an adorable little shadow.

Nimbus is a very vocal fellow, always making rumbly grumbly noises to let you know what he's feeling at all times. Usually he's feeling "play time!" or "I love you!" He has a particular fondness for underwear, so it's advisable to keep the special occasion variety off the floor. On the plus side, he can help with the laundry. We should also warn you about his eyes. They're so big and beautiful, and he makes great eye contact, so it's hard not to fall in love right away.

Nimbus is working on politely meeting strangers and not seeing everyone and everything as a new toy. Even when you pet him, he thinks "Oh look, your hand's a toy now!" But his manners are overall pretty good. He knows sit, down, shake, and he also waits for the "free command before eating.

The ideal home for Nimbus would be one with an active couple or single person who will give him plenty of exercise, and he'd love to have a yard to romp in. In return, he promises to love you forever. Come meet this fun pup!
