Please meet sweet, playful and energetic Buddy who is ready, willing and able to bring you all the love and fun you can possibly imagine! It’s been a long haul for Buddy, who was surrendered with his brother Buttons, but turns out these two were not a bonded pair and Buddy would probably prefer a quiet mellow home and companion so he can shine as your one and only. Buddy is true to his Boston Terrier half as he would be eternally happy to chase and retrieve whatever ball you throw to him. Within a fence-in yard (a must), he will never tire of chasing the ball. And the more exercise for him, the better.
Buddy is a little shy at first and tends to be more anxious dog in general. He gets very excited when he sees other animals – dogs, squirrels, cats.
Leash training is progressing, but more work still needs to be done. When he first arrived at his foster home, Buddy would mark in the house so he wears belly bands, which he doesn’t mind, but since his brother has moved to his forever home, Buddy has improved his house breaking.
Buddy is currently recovering from Lyme disease that he receives medication for, but other than that, he is perfectly healthy. Buddy has become very funny, kind and sweet while in foster care, and hopes to continue that progress in his furever home.
Personality plus is an understatement for this little guy. Your life will never be boring.
A small family with a consistent routine would be the best home for this sweet fellow, and one without cats or small kids. He also needs a family that is willing to work with him on his anxiety to give him the confidence he needs. Buddy wouldn’t mind the companionship of an older calm female dog to show him the ropes. He has been very sweet to his much older foster sister who is special needs. As always, the foster Mom has the last (and best) word to say about Buddy:
“This sweet dog deserves a great life with a small family who has the time to teach him and play. He is a busy guy with lots of love and kisses to be shared. He needs someone to give him the daily positive reinforcement and consistency of an established home and he will flourish.”
