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!

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
