The fat one

Gombo …

... appearance

He is the biggest puppy of all. He is also easily recognizable by his different eye colours. His fur colour is mainly dark brown, with some light brown and white around his paws and in his face.

... with conspecifics

He is quite a rough player in the puppy-pack. Since he is the biggest, fattest, and laziest as well it is very often the case that he starts to play with others, but when the play involves chasing he stops. Chasing the other would be too much of wasting energy, so he rather sits down and whatches others chasing each other.

...at learning and in interaction with us

He loves humans very much – and he also likes sitting on them. It is not a joke with a body size of his. He is quite a fast learner and also if the test includes food he is very eager to work and is very smart in solving tasks – he is the proof of what a high level of food motivation can accomplish.

... with strangers and unknown objects

He is brave with unfamiliar people and also with unknown objects. He is curious about the world around him, but he is taking his time to explore - nice and slowly for the sake of reducing un-necessarry energy-loss.
