Derby would like his new family to have had some experience with owning dogs. Derby is a very sweet boy with people he knows but he does take his time getting comfortable with new people but once he knows you, he is an affectionate boy. Derby would like to be the only pet in the home and his ideal location would be a quiet area where he won’t see many dogs as he finds this frustrating. Derby is a big fan of chasing toys and carrying them around so would like an enclosed garden where he can run around and play. Someone should be around for most the time at first to allow him to settle in.
