Hi – I’m Buddy’s foster mom and I would like to tell you about this sweet boy. Buddy is a mix of Poodle and Terrier and is about 10 years old, although he has the energy of a much younger dog – people are surprised when they hear his age. He is black with some grey patches and weighs about 25 pounds.
Buddy has a very sweet disposition, is very outgoing and very loving. He is quiet in the house, is house trained, sleeps through the night and is a very good eater. Buddy loves to go for walks and is happy to meet up with all his friends – both 2 and 4-legged. He has made many friends in our complex, and is always greeted warmly by his human friends. Buddy makes friends with all the smaller dogs, but is not comfortable around large dogs. He has two feline companions in our home – one mostly ignores him and the other – well – they have a love/hate relationship just like human siblings.
Visiting the vet and groomer aren’t amongst his favorite activities, but he tolerates their attention. He is up to date with vaccines, and is neutered and micro chipped –the vet says he is in good health. Buddy doesn’t bark very much – sometimes at loud noises or when he is trying to tease the cat. He would love a home with a fenced yard where he could wander and explore, but is content in our apartment. He is good when left alone for a few hours, but naturally prefers to have his humans close by, and is always happy to have you return home - you are met with much enthusiasm on your return. Buddy can pick up new routines very quickly and adapts to them very well.
Buddy would be best suited to an adult home with a single owner, and as his foster mom I would be ever so happy to see this great fellow find his furever home.
