If you're very busy, but would like a pup companion all day, Juba is your guy. He's a go-go-go boy, happy to be out with you and having fun. Then back home, he'll be glad to go down for a snooze.

This sweet boy also likes visiting with other people, and furry friends. He's had meet-and-greets with kids from 3- to 12-years-old and was amazingly friendly with them. When out for hikes and walks, he's also well-behaved when seeing other dogs, taking cues from them. And he's sharing his foster home with three cats, getting along very well with two of them. One of them isn't his fan, but they give each other plenty of room. And he's a house-trained boy who goes to the door and patiently waits to be let out.

Come meet this friendly boy. He'll want to be your new best buddy!
