Buddy is a very handsome 2 year old who is looking for a special family to call his own.
Although he is an energetic puppy needing plenty of exercise, Buddy is mostly wanting a person to closely bond with. He has been with an elderly owner who was unable to provide him with much of the play time and running around a puppy needs to have.
He is only now, since coming into Rescue, learning to play with toys and be the puppy that he is. It has been very exciting watching him bloom into a bouncy little boy and learn what a ball and squeaky toys are.
Buddy gets along well with other dogs and even a cat, but is more interested in being close to people.
For that reason, he will be happiest with someone who is either retired or works from home most of the time.
He is a little timid with strangers, but will bond very quickly with his furever person and usually follow you throughout the house.
He loves riding in a car and would also enjoy going out with you whenever possible.
Buddy has not been exposed to extremely young children, but would do well with older kids that would like to go outside and play with him.
He likes to go for long walks and explore new places with his people.
He is crate trained (although that is not his favorite place to be) and obeys basic commands, but additional obedience classes are recommended.
If you are looking for not just a pet….but a Companion to be at your side most of the time….please consider Buddy. He will be a very loyal pet that you can count on to be there for you, just as he needs you to be there for him.
