Luba is such a sweet, loving boy. He loves snuggling next to his people on the couch and will snooze there most of the day if they let him. He also loves giving kisses and sharing his toys with them. He's a playful boy, too. He will try to paw you for your attention, but if you're busy, he'll go play with his toys or just lay down next to you.

Now in foster care, he's having fun fetching his squeaky ball and frisbee and playing tug-o-war. He's playing nicely with their 5-year-old Pitbull, and he's doing well on his leash walks, both long and short. He may make a good hiking and running buddy. He is a very curious pup who wants to sniff everything and can be distracted by other people and dogs he sees.

At home, he's a chill, easygoing boy who makes great eye contact, answers to "sit" and is working on "down." Although he had two accidents when first in his foster home, he is house-trained. He's doing better in his crate, lured to go in for treats, calming down and doing best there when his fosters are away.

Luba will love to be in a home with a single parent, a couple or a family with older kids. He's excitable, so might knock over young ones when he wants to play with them. He also will enjoy a female doggie housemate. He should also benefit from someone experienced with training. Come meet this boy. Give him a couch cuddle and he'll follow you home!

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
