Buddy is a typical goofy Labrador Retriever mix. He is a beautiful pure white with sweet eyes and floppy ears. He loves to give kisses and he is a leaner! Buddy has great Lab energy; loves to play and run around. He would make an excellent hiking, running or walking companion (does pull, however is getting better)
He is a very happy-go-lucky, sweet boy who is extremely affectionate and his tail never stops wagging. Buddy is a solid boy and weighs about 68 pounds, he is athletic and agile, plays hard and sleeps hard. When he is not having fun on a run or in the backyard, his favorite place is right by your side on the couch, usually head in lap or his full body on your lap; one of your bigger lap-dogs!
Buddy knows SIT, NO and listens very well, he could benefit from some training classes and some leash manners so that he reduces his puling. He is a very smart boy and will follow your lead.
Sweet Buddy first came to us as a rescue, our first foster in fact, about a year and a half ago, we loved him right away. He lived with us for about 3 months. As luck would have it he found a great "Dad" who provided him a loving home and plenty of exercise. He even got to go to work with him and LOVES to ride in the car, although he is partial to a truck (he likes to be up high). He is an excellent co-pilot, probably the best dog passenger I have ever had. Just let him kick back and listen to some tunes next to his favorite person and he is in his glory. Sadly, Buddy's Dad was called into military service and he had to give up his best "Bud", friend and companion; he was devastated! The person who was scheduled to care for him was unable to do it at the last minute.
Buddy lived in an apartment for the last year and a half, got out regularly to run (he can go at least 3 miles easily) and walk and spent a lot of time "working" on the road with this Dad. He would do well in a home with a backyard, but would also do well in an apartment provided he gets enough exercise. He would be best as an only dog, so that you could focus on his training and exercise, he also has some food aggression, but all of our dogs are fed separately. It is always suggested to feed dogs separately anyway to alleviate any chance of resource guarding. He is an Alpha so would need a strong pack leader to show him the way. He is not a fan of cats or squirrels, and will chase them. But he is an incredible mush with people and makes a great lap warmer!
He loves children, but would suggest kids 8 or older as he is a strong boy and could accidently knock over a younger child. Buddy currently lives with a 12 year old and spends a good deal of time with a 10 and 13 year old.
He is a wonderful 3 1/2; year old boy, who is up to date on all vaccines, neutered on heartworm and flea and tick prevention. His adoption has been sponsored, so to have this wonderful companion would only be a $100 adoption fee.
As mentioned, he is a sweet and affectionate, high energy boy who would love nothing more than to go for a hike or a long walk and cuddle on the couch with you. Are you ready for a new lap warmer? It's getting chilly!
