Pumba is a very good dog and a total love bug. At the age of 8, he is still very playful. He loves his tennis balls and his squeaky toys. He would someone to love, for them to love him and help heal his broken heart from his owner passing. He has always been allowed on furniture. He walks very well with a leash but will pull when he sees another dog out of excitement. He loves cuddles and to be loved. Pumba loves to watch college football and he knows his team and gets excited.
