Facts about Buddy

  • Breed: Mountain Cur/Hound (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male

Buddy just spent 2 weeks at Meadowbrook Kennel for some basic training and to learn how to be a "normal" dog. Buddy is now a brand new confident dog and we are amazed at the difference in him.. He's doing really well walking on a leash and now greets people with a happy face and wagging tail.

Buddy is 4-5 yrs old and weights 55 lbs. He's house trained and rides great in the car. Buddy also loves other dogs and is really good with *small children. He's an excellent snuggler but would also make a great running partner. He's a dog that just wants to please his people and receive their love. Buddy has had a hard life. He's a survivor and a fighter and now he needs a person or family to love and love him in return.

Buddy's story with us began the morning of November 5th 2014. I was on my way to work and had taken the back way, which is a gravel road that goes around the side of a mountain. Buddy was searching along the side of the road for food scraps or literally anything he could eat because he was starving. Form the moment I spotted him I knew he was coming home with me and I would do whatever I had to do to catch him. Thankfully, he was only a little frightened and I was able to win him over with my lunch. At a mere 38 lbs we had to introduce food to him slowly because he had gone so long with out food and his body wasn't used to digesting the food. He is in perfect health now and awaiting the right person or family to come along and give him plenty of love, care and kibble!

**Buddy is up to date on Vaccines and Neutered.**
Adoption fee is $100

If you think he could be your best Buddy please email for an adoption application.

About For the Love of Paws, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to humanely reduce the number of stray and abandoned dogs and cats in our community by providing low cost spay and neuter services and educational opportunities that promote responsible pet ownership.

Additionally, as resources are available, we take in stray/abandon animals, have them spayed/neutered, vaccinated, provide needed medical care and adopt them out or transfer the animals to other like minded agencies outside Scott County. We also assist others in the community who are fostering stray or abandon animals to spay/neuter & re-home. For the Love of Paws does not facilitate the adoption or re-homing of any unfixed or intact animal.

Our five year plan is to spay/neuter 500 dogs and cats annually and expand our educational outreach program to elementary, middle schools, high schools and throughout the community. The 500 animals we “fix” annually will conservatively prevent 2000 unwanted puppies and kittens that year. Since the cat/dog reproduction life is about 5-8 years, we believe if we are successful, we will have made a significant positive impact in the community.
