Buzzy just wants to sniff and run. He likes to chase tennis balls, though he might not bring the ball back unless you throw another one. He is extremely loyal and a great dog, despite having some tough breaks in life.
First, he was given up as a puppy to the shelter, then he got adopted by a man who called him Bozo and put him outside in a nice pen. He didn’t come out to visit or play with him or let him come out of the pen to play. He became crazed with loneliness and longed for companionship.
A kind neighbor started taking him regularly for walks and to the dog park. She didn't like calling him Bozo, so he goes by Bozey or even Buzzy. (Heck, he really doesn't care what you call him, if you'll upgrade his home!)
With her help, Buzzy matured into a calmer dog and learned about love and companionship. He now lets her kiss his snout without jumping up to meet her face halfway, like he did when he was young and bored. This neighbor also got Buzzy's owners into crating him inside on extra cold evenings, so he IS crate-trained and should house train with very small effort.
The world is still fascinating and there are SO many things to smell, and wildlife to chase! Buzzy would love a yard to run in that is larger than his pen. Due to his isolation, he can be protective of his yard and wary of strangers. An adult-home who can adequately supervise him is recommended.
We would like this loving boy to finally have a home as indoor dog who is considered a true member of the family pack.
