Things I do in my free time: I love chewing on bones and taking naps!
Things I know: My name, Sit
Things I am learning: Come, Lay down (I'm getting close with this one!)
Kids: I get along with kinds great! Due to my size, I can bump into them from time to time so I'd do well with kids that are a little bit bigger than baby sized. Although, I'm a gentle giant so I'm sure I could learn to leave a bubble!
Dogs: I do well around medium to equal sized dogs, honestly I really don't seem to care about dogs too much, I'm kind of independent. Dogs 40+ pounds would be good for me.
Cats: I do not do well with cats or squirrels... small animals in general really.
Crate: I stay in a crate when my foster mom leaves.
Additional Info from foster parent: Huey is a sweetheart of a dog. Love, love, loves people. Loves to snuggle. He's good with his foster sister, they pretty much just hang out. He definitely prefers the company of humans. He is housebroken. But he is pretty much the happiest dog & his tail is always wagging. Huey loves lying around and chewing on Nylabones and Benebones.
Huey needs work on obedience and on his leash walking. As of right now he will take you wherever he wants to go. Huey will need an owner that is prepared and committed to training with him.
If you've followed Huey, you've probably noticed he disappeared for awhile. We were so excited that this handsome hunk found a home. Unfortunately, through no fault of his own, it sadly did not work out. This does happen from time to time. It definitely broke some hearts, including his former family. At MPBR we are determined to find a home that works for all of our dogs. We believe there is still a happy ending for Huey and look forward to his future! Could that be with you?
Adoption fee- $0 (waived) Huey was the Dog of the Month for June 2017. Since he is still available, his adoption fee remains waived

Hi my name is Gwen. I love to be around people and get cuddled. I do have a hard time when put in my kennel, I will cry and bark for a few minutes. I do nap well in the kennel and chew on my rope toy that my foster mom gave me. It’s my favorite! My foster mom says I do great in my kennel (after a couple minutes) and loves that I’ve never had an accident in there.
At the moment I have two other furry friends at my foster home. A large male lab that plays with me and has become my buddy and a female pit bull that I love to play with as well as cuddle with in front of the fireplace. I love to play with them and they love me. My foster mom says I play well with others. However I’ve never been around cats but I’d love to meet one, I’m laid back enough that I think we could get along just fine.
I also know some tricks. I’m very consistent when told to sit and when told to lay down I get it about half the time. I also know ‘leave it’ when I start to get into something that my foster mom doesn’t think is good for me, that doesn’t happen often. Also I haven’t had any accidents in the house yet. I know to go to the door when I hear ‘let’s go outside’. I love being outside, even in the snow. When I’m done I just go and wait by the door to get back inside.
I love being around kids. I like to lay on their laps and be pet. I’m not really a chewer, except with my toys, and my foster family really thinks that’s great. I love to greet people when they come to the house and I still jump some but am starting to learn not to. When my foster mom has taken me out to places like PetSmart and Home Depot I am very good with people as well as on the leash. I don’t pull much and stay close to my foster mom.
My foster mom says that I am a very smart, sweet and loving girl. I learn quick and am motivated by food. I can’t wait to meet my new forever family. If you would like to cuddle and get some puppy kisses sometime please set up a time to meet me.
