Buddy Boy is a wonderfully easy going, mature, 5 year old Black Lab weighing about 50 lbs, that is the perfect companion in a settled lifestyle with a family, couple or person looking for a happy companion.  This boy is the definition of “no trouble whatsoever”.  Buddy Boy minds his own business and he requires no special attention or help with separation anxiety.  He is past the bothersome stages of chewing everything in sight and he is past the nervous energy that many Labs have when younger.  He always has a welcome smile and happy tail wag when you show him even the smallest bit of attention.  He demands nothing of you but will give you everything he has if he belongs to you.  We keep telling Buddy, promising him actually, that one day someone will find him and give him the most spectacular forever home he could dream of.  This handsome boy has thick black fur and melt-your-heart brown eyes.  He doesn’t like the leash but will tolerate it if you insist.  We are working on crate and house training but honestly, he doesn’t need a crate because he doesn’t wander around the house getting in to trouble.  Buddy Boy and his sister Kimi were owner surrenders when the family they were with could no longer keep them.  This was a blessing in disguise for these babies.  They were in good health but did not receive the love and attention needed.  Kimi has been adopted and she has blossomed with her forever family.  So if you have time and patience, Buddy Boy needs a home too.  He needs someone who will allow him to blossom from a shy dog initially, to one that trusts you completely as he accepts the love you have for him.  It will take a little time, patience and love on your part to bring Buddy’s true self out.  But we promise it is there just waiting to be uncovered from within.  PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or

About Critter Companion Rescue- VA

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?
