Derby is a gentle natured guy, with not much experience in the world. He’s learning with patient handling and love, that the world can be a fun and safe place.

Derby was a star at the vet hospital, he seduced everyone with his kind spirit and sweet personality. He is enjoying more comforts, such as treats and toys, than he has ever had in his short life . Derby blossoms when he has another female dog to play with. He’s learning that walks can be fun if he’s with a confident dog.

We feel Derby would do best in a secure fenced in yard, with a dog friendly female that enjoys playing. A quiet adult home would be best as he is afraid of children.
