If this face doesn’t say it all! Meet Cobbler, the perfect combination of puppy preciousness and adorable mischief! If you’re considering a puppy please read his bio and don’t wait long if you think he’s a fit for your family!
Cobbler is a 13 week old lab mix who was rescued from down south. Although his rescue journey has brought him a long way from home, he doesn’t seem to mind one bit! Cobbler is a sweet little guy that just wants to play and to be close to his people. In fact, he’s already his foster mom’s shadow!
Cobbler’s forever family should understand that not only are you getting a very sweet boy, you’re also getting a puppy that comes with all the puppy goodness! He is great with other young dogs who love to play! He likely wouldn’t be a great match for an older laid back resident doggo. He LOVES to play, run, and chew!
Being a young puppy, Cobbler is still learning about house training. Before coming up to his foster mom, he was trained to use puppy pads. Although he will go outside, he definitely knows what puppy pads are for and has had barely any accidents in the house. He is also crate trained and loves to sleep in there at night.
Leashes are another new thing for Cobbler! His foster mom uses a martingale collar and/or a harness and he doesn’t seem to mind either at all! He’s picking up on leash training rather quickly because he just wants to be close to you. He explores and sniffs all the things, but stays close. He looks to his people for guidance and his uncertainty of the world around him is absolutely adorable!
Cobbler’s favorite things are stuffed animals that make noise, tennis balls, any type of chew toy, and tug of war. He is a good boy in the car. Usually just lays down and falls asleep. Cobbler would LOVE to go on a ride with you to his forever home!

PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
