Herbert was found close to the highway and was in danger of being hit. He was more than happy to jump into his rescuer’s car and rode like a gentleman. Herbert is very people friendly and seems to like other dogs. We are not sure about Herbert’s attitude towards cats yet. He has lots of extra energy and loves to play almost any game.
