My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Buddha is likely the absolute sweetest boy you will ever meet. Despite his horrible past and the many scars to prove it, this boy wants nothing more than to give kisses and get any cuddles and loving you will give him. He is quiet as can be and will often retreat to his cozy crate. Even more, he loves to curl up as close to you as possible for movies, sleep or just gentle reminders that he is safe and no one will hurt him ever again.
Buddha needs a home that will be gentle, patient and committed to helping him understand he is safe and sound. Buddha was pulled from a kill shelter in Texas on his very last day, after months of waiting, which didn't help his battered confidence. Yet, he emerged wanting to learn and wanting to love. His resilience is just so inspiring! He is perfect on a leash, loves toys and chews and even gets along with other dogs. Buddha would make the very best at-home office buddy for anyone that works from home, as he loves to just curl up at your feet without ever a peep.
Buddha is happiest with his person close- it keeps him feeling safe. But, if need be, when you have to leave, he will go curl up in his bed and patiently wait for your return, when which, his tail will thump exuberantly at even the sound of your voice saying his name, alerting him of your return. He is truly just such a happy, loyal and ridiculously loving boy that will cherish you!
More and more, Buddha has adorable bursts of playful glee when he's outside in the yard but will retreat to your feet realizing he let his guard down, nervous he will get in trouble. Buddha deserves a home that will nurture his amazing, sweet spirit and remind him often, how safe and adored he is. He's an absolute angel, and he will be such a blessing to any forever home.
