Buddy loves to explore outside and enjoys hanging out while you work in the yard. He is ready for a walk anytime and is good on a leash. With consistent training, he will reduce his mild pulling. He is a perfect car rider. He gets in the back, lays down, and enjoys the ride.
When everyone is busy, he plays by himself by throwing his squeak toys in the air and trying to catch them. He is a very gentle “rough-houser” that tends to lean on you when he plays, so children need to be big enough to withstand the weight. Buddy enjoys chew toys, but is not a destroyer and does not chew on other people’s things. He is not food aggressive or obsessive, but has the potential to be a counter surfer.
Previous neglect has left Buddy sight impaired. His world appears very blurry and if you didn’t know, you’d just think he was clumsy, but it doesn’t slow him down much. This may however impact his mild separation anxiety. As you work with him and he feels a sense of home and family, his whining should stop. We’ve seen a reduction in the duration over a short period of time. Buddy takes no medication and has no known health issues. If you have room in your pack for Buddy contact the ACSR . . . . .
Buddy's adoption fee is: $200.
