Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:

"Looking for a good listener? Buddy, whose name fits perfectly, has his eyes on you all the time so chat away. This 5-year-old good looker needs, in exchange, a family that can listen and help him. He has had bad luck in the past and just needs someone to love. If you are intuitive and empathetic, you are the one for Buddy. He is worth it.

During the week we did a short-term foster with Buddy, we have learned a great deal. He is housebroken with no destructive behavior. He slept thru the night and got up when we did. He started out rambunctious, but learned quickly how to calm himself with help and structure from us. He is an easy walker, can sit, speak and go down. Buddy respected us and our rules. He has come a long way in one week.

He loves his treats and is quite good at hunting for them hidden in the yard - Would be a great nose work dog! He also enjoys affection and being touched very much. He is a hoarder and destroyer of toys, but met his match with the Kong ball.

We really enjoyed this very sweet boy, who kept us entertained with his silliness and joy."

Meet Buddy at PACC or email us at to ask about him!

Foster Q & A:


If a DOG, describe their leash behavior:
Leash is pretty good. At times he picks up scent and pulls. I think he can continue to get better

What words and qualities best describe your foster (friendly, reserved, cuddly, couch potato, etc)?
Buddy is really a good buddy. He wants to be with us and hangs with us wherever we go. He is smart at picking up our rules about behavior. He wants to do the right thing. Keeping up with the self control expectations and working thru stranger fear, would be a really good thing for this very sweet boy. He does not resource guard his food. He has never damaged anything except his own toys. We were able to pick up the bowl when he was eating.

Do you have any funny stories or other information you would like to share about your foster?
Buddy has a hard time sharing toys, but wants to play. We have two Kong balls. When he catches one, we throw the other, forcing him to drop one. He tries to catch one with the other in his mouth. Or he will try to hoard both between his paws, but one always squirts out. This game wears him out.
We also play "find it", where he hunts for treats hidden in the back yard.
The hand vac seems to rile him up.
