Attempted capture for over 2 years after initial awareness call made by store employee in 2013. Various unsuccessful attempts made upon spotting animal in need of help up through 2015. Finally one random day upon pulling into the DG store another customer was feeding a dog fitting the description previously given to us by employees which was confirmed to be indeed the stray needing help. Immediately approached him and was friendly which he walked freely to our vehicle and jumped in and has been with the rescue since.
Named "Buddy" after his sweet and friendly personality upon rescue and each day since. Suspected to be a previous trained hunting dog because of his never ending urge to run free outside and howl in the woods. His nose hits the ground and Buddy refuses to go back inside but cannot be left alone unattended outside otherwise he will dig out of kennels, jump fences and take off until he is ready to come home. Precautions will have to be taken for anyone wanting to adopt him in order to ensure his safety and to keep him from escaping.
Fully vetted including all vaccinations, HW tested, Rabies vaccine, neutered. Requires yearly HW testing, yearly rabies vaccine and annual vaccinations after adoption.
Social & Training Info:
Buddy is great with cats, dogs, kids and adults. He is house broken and will alert to having to go outside by barking, howling or going to the door. Can be playful and loud when howling but is a laid back and lazy boy 90% of the time. Is kennel and crate trained but prefers only medium crates that fit him perfectly otherwise he will chew out of them if too big. Enjoys belly runs and ear massages but is susceptible to chronic ear infections which may cause pain and need vet care. Otherwise this boy has many years ahead to share with his adopting family.
Fee: $125 includes vet care
The Following is Required: Meet & Greet, Background Check, Questionnaire, Vet References, Landlord Approval, Home Check, Signed Contract
