Buddy came to NBGR as an owner surrender because, although he loved the children in his home, he did not do well with visiting children. (We don’t know anything about their behavior around him.) While he was a little timid in the beginning, Buddy acclimated quickly to his foster home, and we feel he will do the same when he moves into his forever home.
Buddy’s foster mom describes him as spunky and athletic. He loves to chase squirrels along the fence line and have friendly chats with the dogs beyond the fence. He adores playing with his toys and also loves to play one-way fetch -- you throw the ball, he runs to get it. He doesn’t understand he’s supposed to bring it back to you, yet, but Buddy is very smart. He knows basic commands – sit, stay, and down -- and we feel sure that with a little work he will be playing proper fetch in no time flat.
When the time comes to kick back, Buddy is a great sofa partner and a wonderful snuggle bunny. Once his foster brother settles, he likes to use him as a pillow.
While his foster mom is at work, Buddy stays in the kitchen or in his crate and has no accidents. He is comfortable on leash, and we think he will enjoy going on long walks and burning off energy with his new family.
Buddy is approximately 4 years old, weighs about 20 pounds, is fully vetted, micro-chipped, and on heartworm preventative. All he needs now is a family who will give him the love and attention he deserves. Give him that, and you will have a loyal sidekick and shadow.
Buddy is located in San Antonio, TX.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
