BUDDY BOY - Beagle, male, 7, 35-40 lbs. Buddy Boy is a happy dog who is doing well in his foster home that he shares with 2 cats and another dog. He loves long walks where he enjoys looking for any furry woodland creature that may be nearby. Buddy will pull and bark when he’s hot on the trail in true beagle style to be sure you know he’s on to something. He is very food motivated and it’s helping him learn his basic obedience commands (he loves most food including fruits and vegetables – especially baby carrots.) Since joining us we have learned that Buddy Boy has Cushing’s disease and will need daily medication but this doesn’t slow him down a bit. Buddy does not like being crated and with a consistent schedule has proven to be house trained. He is learning about toys and isn’t really a fetch kinda guy, he’s more of a “finding the squeaker in a toy is like finding the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks” kinda guy. When he’s tired and had enough playtime he will let you know he’s ready to go in and would rather go lay someplace comfy inside. After all the fun and excitement of his walks and playtime – Buddy boy enjoys evenings laying by your feet while you watch TV or read a good book.
