Personality: Meet Friar Tuck(er). An AKC-registered, purebred, 7-year-old love bug. He needs a new home!

This guy loves attention, and will follow you around the house. Once you’re ready for him and the other dogs to settle down, he’ll follow their lead, take a load off, and give you a break. Well, until he’s ready for a quick scratch behind the ears, and then another nap. He switches between the dog bed and the floor, depending on his mood.

He’s a great car-rider. He’ll stick his head up on the console for a little rub, and then return to the back seat. He just likes to be near you.

Oh, and toys? He LOVES his toys. He also likes everyone else’s toys. He *might* end up being that dog at the dog park with 8 tennis balls in his mouth. Just make sure you bring plenty for his friends.

Ideal home: He comes from a home with lots of kids and other animals – even two cats – so he’s used to being part of a big family, and he gets along well with the other pets. He’s a big boy, though, at 87 pounds, and really likes to play! He’ll do well with a buddy who also likes to romp around.

He’s used to his crate, but if you’re home, and he’s in the kitchen blocked by the baby gate, he’ll whine. Like we said – he just wants to be with you.

We hear he likes to swim, too. Pool time anyone?
