Buster is extremely loving and snuggly. He will cuddle up beside me on the sofa any day. He has learned a couple commands. He has made friends with the dog next door and they play together in the yard sometimes. Buster is a great conversation starter and anyone who sees him on walks will come pet him. He is very friendly too--he politely walks by other dogs without starting much of a barking uproar. He will grow to be a pretty big boy--he has those fairly big Lab paws. We love him!
