Hi there! My name is Buddy. I was surrendered by my owner who could not take care of me anymore. She said I was not good with kids. I really did not enjoy being in a dog shelter. When the dog shelter people would say my name in front of my cage, I would sit up and wave my paws up and down. I was trying to tell them I was ready to be adopted! I am so happy now to be fostered by a MARS volunteer and can't wait to find a great forever home to live out my golden years and keep someone wonderful company.
I am a kind and sweet guy who likes affection. I have very bad cataracts and I can barely see anything at all - but that doesn't slow me down. I am house trained but I may mark my territory initially so please watch me to prevent this. I am dreaming of being next to my forever person or people and hope you choose me!
My foster mom says: 'Buddy is such an easy little guy to care for. He always comes when called, never wanders off, never has accidents and sleeps very soundly. He's hilarious when he gets excited and does a funny dance where he looks like he's going to stand on his head. He loves to go on walks and does great on his leash. He has lost some sight, but it hardly seems to hinder him in getting around. I have 2 other small dogs and he gets along with them just fine. I would say he has even made friends with my terrier. He likes to sleep a lot, but other than that he is young for his age and I feel has a lot of good years left. He seems more patient with children than adults, but little kids are unpredictable and make him nervous'.
