found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Buster is already completely house trained and crate trained. He will willingly enter his crate when asked and is quiet when his humans are not home. Buster knows sit, paw, and stay and is working on down and leash training. In true basset hound manner, Buster is extremely food motivated, making him a great candidate for more training!
Buster has been great with most people he's met while in his foster home. He loves attention and lives for those belly rubs. Unfortunately before coming to Broken Tail Rescue, Buster was victim of abuse (a single incident). During his recovery Buster was repeatedly poked on an open wound and Buster bit the person poking him. The bite was minor and most likely intended to be a warning that Buster was in pain. Although Buster has shown so much love and affection to his foster parents, Buster would benefit from a quiet and low stress home where he could feel safe. Buster would also benefit from additional training to establish routine and so he can bond with and develop trust in his humans.
Buster has gotten along really well with other dogs! He did well with the dog in his previous foster home and was great at doggie day care, but we think Buster would do best as the only pet in home. Buster has shown some guarding behavior over his sleeping spaces, especially when other dogs are around. He will need an adopter that will continue training providing positive reinforcement. We think he would love a doggie friend to have play dates with!

Buster is being fostered in Medford, MA.
The adoption fee is $350.

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.
