Buddy (20210615-01)
From: Texas
Hi my name is Buddy and I am rough and tumble and ready to rumble. My life didn’t start so great and my owner shot me in the head and stabbed me and left me tied to a tree. But a nice Deputy found me and saved me. Then I got this new house called a Foster. She is super nice and even got me a pool! My foster mom calls me a wild man but I don’t mind, I think it makes me sound like a rebel and hopefully it’ll help me out with the chicks. They dig bad boys right? I hope so! I’ve been swimming a lot lately because I’m trying to work on my physique so that it can help me attract some of them Canadian honeys. I can’t wait to strut my stuff on all the adventures we can take. Do you like hiking? Awesome I’m up for any challenge and I’m fearless. Do you want to go kayaking? Thats amazing because I love the water! Do you want to stay home and watch some hockey? grrrrr I’m there! Let’s go Canada! Maybe we want to have a little get together in the yard! Perfect! I’m up for fetch anytime and I’ll impress all your friends! I’m quite the comedian. I’ll go anywhere as long as I’m with you! I really like being with my people. So come on! Let’s start our new adventures today! My bones and toys are all packed and I’m ready to roll. Canada here I come!!

Notes from his foster.
Buddy loves riding loose in the car, but he needs help getting in the door. He didn’t like going through the hatchback.
Loves riding loose in the car.
We haven’t had any issues with destruction but he had plenty of things to play with. He really needs a home with a yard – he loves to run. He might enjoy life with a similar-sized dog, but it’s not necessary.
Buddy is such a good boy and we do love this guy. He’s very vigilant for his home and family. He likes to play in the water but dotesn’t like being sprayed and is afraid of hoses. However he does love his kiddie pool.
Professional grooming is recommended.
He doesn’t care for dog biscuits but he loves the pepperoni/sausage training bites.
He loves attention. Doesn’t like having a collar/leash put on but fine with it once it’s on.
Could use collar/leash work
Doesn’t like for you to grab him by the collar. I think all of this is because of the abuse by the previous owner.
He likes being included with the family.
