Buddy's Story...
Buddy came from a loving home but due to unfortunate circumstances is now finding himself in need of a new home.  He is a very good boy, a wonderful pet and family companion.  He would do well in just about any situation and is friendly with everyone.  He is just a loveable, fun-loving and friendly family dog.  Buddy is 8 - 9 years old and is well behaved, affectionate, playful and a joy in the home.


Here is what his foster family had to say:


Buddy has been a joy to have in our home. He assimilated seamlessly into the rhythm of our home and has been a wonderful companion to our Golden, Skye. They have had lots of fun playing together in our fenced backyard...chasing squirrels and diving into the leaves.  He's co-habitated with our two cats as well....our young cat in particular I noticed loves Buddy (will sleep with him...something he won't do with our own dog!)


Buddy is very affectionate and loves to be petted, have his belly scratched and cuddle up with you on the couch for a nap. His hearing is very good, we are alerted to the arrival of the mailman before he hit our driveway daily! ;-)  Not sure he has been walked much as he pulls when he sees other dogs or squirrels, my daughter had a hard time handling him, and my husband remarked that he is very strong. His pads are very soft and unscratched so I assume he was out to do is business and not much else. He thoroughly enjoys his walks with us.


Buddy would do well with kids of any age I think, he's very gentle and does not jump up on people.  He has not exhibited any signs of aggression, but wants to be the dominant dog in the home and shows a bit of jealousy by crying or competing for petting with our dog.... being sensitive to that and showering love on both of them seems to have worked that out.  Buddy is very social....if the doorbell rang, he would greet the person wagging his tail and looking for petting. He loves my husband, my husband is afraid to get to close to him as he doesn't want to get too attached and I think Buddy views that as he has to try to win him over.

Buddy doesn't look or act his age....he's very healthy, playful and obedient, a lovely dog!


If you think Buddy would be a good addition to your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy, a Hamilton Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
