Colbert is a goofy, silly, excitable and playful boy. He is still learning about the world around him and can be a little insecure at times. He is a smart boy and lets you know he is feeling insecure by jumping or doing the “floppy fish” by flopping to the ground, wiggling his body and wagging his tail for reassurance. But, who can resist a lovable, floppy guy? Colbert will gladly accept belly rubs, body scratches and affection in all forms. Since he’s still young, Colbert will need some help learning to settle and keeping his paws on ground. He would benefit from a calm and patient home with people who can teach him manners kindly. You won’t find a more loving dog than him! Colbert is a 1-year-old, 58-pound bundle of joy who has been at APS since Jan. 2, 2022. He can’t wait to meet you and find his forever home!
