Facebook has this super annoying feature that reminds you of posts from a year ago. So we keep getting people posting on Buddy's story asking for updates...
"Please tell me he got adopted!!"
"What's his status?"
There's NOTHING we'd love more than to update that Buddy has been adopted. But he hasn't been. And each request for an update is just a heartbreaking reminder.
We have no idea how he's still waiting for his family. But we're going to keep trying. We'll keep posting him. And we will keep asking you all to share him....
While Buddy is the most chill guy ever, we are asking that he not go to a home with small children. Not that he'd ever hurt a child. But Buddy is not a big cuddler. And he's not into being forced to interact.
He's kind of aloof, and kind of an introvert. That's not to say he doesn't like people.
HE LOVES HIS PERSON.
But he's just not the typical "big dumb lovable meathead rolly-poly" kinda pit bull.
Buddy is ok with other dogs. He's not aggressive. But he'd need a calm dog in his life. Again, he's just not into being forced to interact.
BUT he's also playful, goofy, and fun!! He loves toys and LOVES playing tug.
Buddy IS NOT ok with cats. This one is always weird for people to get. And so many times people ask "are you suuuuuure he's not good with cats?"
To which we reply "how much do you like your cat?"
And then that person gets all insulted and we have to explain that OF COURSE WE'RE SURE HE'S NOT GOOD WITH CATS. And please look at alllllll of our dogs that ARE good with cats!
Buddy has been to "Paws In Progress" and did a one month board and train to help with basic commands and make him a more manageable dog. He did awesome. The cost of that training was $2,000.... which is quite reasonable for all he learned!! What does this mean for you?! It means you get a fully trained dog and you don't have to pay for it!!!!! Woo hooooo!!!!
The best thing about Buddy is that he can be left home alone and won't destroy anything. He doesn't have accidents. In fact he mostly just sleeps on his bed all day.
He'd love to hang out next to you and share some popcorn and watch a movie marathon.
He'd love to sit in your passenger seat and go for a long road trip.
He'd love to chill on your patio while you BBQ and hang out with your friends or family.
He'd love to go to the beach.
To go hiking.
To go on a camping trip.
Let's get this kid a home....
Please visit norcalbullybreedrescue.com for an adoption application. We ask that you be somewhat local to the Sacramento area, however are willing to make exceptions for the perfect home.
Here is the link to his original post, over a year ago. It explains where he came from. We don't want to keep posting about his past. We want to stay focused on his future. But this explains how Buddy came to be in need of a home...
