Adopt Buddie

This handsome guy is Buddie, a toy-loving happy and playful Golden.  We estimate he is about 7 years old.  Buddie was found as a stray and while we don’t know about his life prior to rescue, it’s clear he was not well cared for.  He has calluses on his elbows and rear end, and his teeth are worn down in front most likely from chewing on a chain link fence or on rocks.  Fortunately, Buddie lives in the moment and is absolutely loving life in foster care!

Buddie is an all-around super boy.  He is sweet and gentle. He has great house manners and has left his foster family’s belongings intact.  He does love chewing on plushy toys…especially those that squeak…so his forever family should have a big toy basket for him.  Buddie adores chasing a ball and frisbee, too…and swimming! He’s a smart boy and knows many of the basic commands: come, sit, stay, down, and drop. He will even roll over on command! He is housebroken, but like any dog would need a reminder of the appropriate place to go potty at his forever home.

Buddie LOVES kids and will give kisses. He hasn’t been tested around toddlers, so kids over 5 would be best. He sleeps on a dog bed in the foster family’s son’s room and is a great sleeper.  Buddie is a big fan of belly rubs and giving kisses, so if you are looking for an affectionate guy he might be the one. He loves attention and being petted and is happiest if his humans are around most of the time.  Buddie gets really excited at mealtime and is a fast eater, so a slow feeder bowl would be a good idea.

Our handsome boy gets along well with other dogs. He is quite interested in chasing the resident cats at his foster home, so we’ll be looking for a family without cats.  He really enjoys going on walks and does very well on leash with the help of a gentle leader head collar.  He is strong and will pull against a regular martingale collar.

We are looking for a family who will shower this amazing boy with all the love, play, walks, and affection that he deserves.
