BUCKLEY (fka Doggie A19019667) New name and bio!
This black and white cutie is somewhere between one and two years old, and was transferred into ACCT by one of their rescue partners. Unfortunately we don’t know if he came in as a stray or as an owner surrender, but we do know that he’s a whole lotta cute! Buckley does have some basic commands mastered, so it seems that at one point he may have had a family. He’s looking to get back into a home so he can work on the ‘snuggle’ command with his new family.
Buckley is a young boy with some energy to burn. But, he also likes to sit in the lap of his human for some quiet time. Buckley knows “sit” and is starting to figure out “down.” He listens very well to verbal redirections; meaning, if he starts to jump up looking for treats, a firm “uh-uh” will put him on his butt in a sit pretty quickly. He enjoys playing with toys (but likes to pull out stuffing) and running around the play yard. Buckley is learning to walk like a good boy on an easy-walk harness (it helps to reduce the amount of pulling that he does on a traditional leash and collar) and will check in with his human to see if he’s doing a good job.
Buckley is part of the Pen Pal Program at ACCT and has TWO volunteers dedicated to finding him a great home or foster. His Pen Pals also spend quality time with him trying to keep him as stress free as possible while living in the shelter. Buckley's Pen Pals also work on teaching him to be the best dog he can be, socializing him with people and other dogs, teaching him some basic commands and giving him plenty of snuggles. If you have any questions about Buckley or adopting from ACCT, please email his pen pals: firstname.lastname@example.org or katherine.ACCT@gmail.com
