Please Note: One of our volunteers, who loves Buddy and wants to see him in a good home has paid part of his adoption fee. His adoption fee is now only $50. He does love affection, but is not needy and would be happy taking a nap while you go about your day. He even sort of talks to people when they pet him in just the right spot behind his ear, making an adorable huffing sound and closing his eyes. He's a people pleaser, and will look to his person constantly for direction and praise. He has some arthritis in one back leg but daily supplements and walks will keep him on the move for many years to come. He has all the traits a good heeler should have, being one of the most loyal of the working breeds. Does great with female dogs and non-aggressive male dogs (especially if introduced during a long walk). He doesn't beg at the table and of course is housetrained. Like all Red Heelers he is acutely aware of what is around him and sometimes try to herd or chase things. Being a ranch dog may work well (he's met a few horses & didn't bark or chase). He could also be happy living with a couple where someone is home part of the day. He likes dog houses & doesn't mind a crate but when he gets to choose he's indoors with his people usually napping. He is about 8 yrs young. A home without cats is needed & kids 8 & up. Please consider this great boy. Buddy has been with us since Summer 08 & is more than ready for his family to find him. He has some quirks just like people and is somewhat afraid that people are going to throw things at him or hit him.
