Story
Reid in an adorable 4 year old Pit Bull. He weighs 65lbs and is neutered, potty trained, and crate trained (although he is very good in the house and currently doesn’t need a crate at his foster home). Reid absolutely loves his people and wants nothing more than to snuggle up on the couch with them. He will greet you with the biggest smile and the happiest tail wags when you come home and will follow you around from room to room just to be close to you. He would like to be the only dog in the home so he can get all the love and attention for himself! Reid would do best in a calm home with a relaxing lifestyle since he is nervous when meeting new people and going to new places. Reid is muzzle trained and will happily let you put it on to take him to the vet, for a walk, or when you have company over. Reid loves to chew on his bones, get belly rubs, and lay outside soaking up the sun. He walks well on a leash and loves to take a few laps around the block and explore all the sights and smells. Reid is a very sweet dog who wants to kick back and enjoy the comfort of a quiet nap on a comfy bed.

Story
Snoopy: Male Beagle Mixed Breed Puppy - Hi, I’m an enthusiastic 1 year old, 45 lb puppy who loves to play. I have lots of energy to play with dogs and chase a ball. I am food motivated which helps with training though it’s hard to stay in a sit position and wait for a treat. I’m working on that. I am crate trained and potty outside with few accidents indoors. I love exploring on my daily walks. If you think I’ll be a perfect fit, fill out an application at www.buffalounderdogs.com ##1840838##

Story
Name: Denzel Age: 10/10/21 (2yrs) Breed: Pit Bull terrier Weight: 55 lbs Gender: Male Hi there! My name is Denzel! I was named that because the ladies who took me in at a local shelter thought I was a very suave, cool man. I'm easy-going, well-mannered, and sweet. I was abandoned locally with no shelter, food, or water and I was brought to a shelter back in August. While I was there, my foster mom worked with me and my puppy dog eyes worked! She took me home! I am crate trained and house trained, but still have accidents here and there. I am getting very comfortable falling asleep on a couch or one of the soft dog beds around the house! I live with an 8 year old boy and I've figured out that kids are pretty fun! I also live with four other dogs and they've been teaching me how to be a dog. I love kisses (giving and getting them), cuddles, treats, toys, and walk like a gentleman on a leash! I know how to sit very well, am learning some other basic commands, and come running when my name is called because it probably means food or something fun! If you are interested in Denzel, please apply at https://www.716paws.org/adopt or message the rescue on Facebook, if you're already approved. ##1849316##

Story
Hi everyone!  My name is Kiwi and I am as sweet as the fruit. I'm a 1 year old pitbull mix.  I love to snuggle up and take a nice nap ( I also have the cutest snores ). I give the sweetest kisses. It takes me a little bit to warm up to people but I love playing with other dogs. I have an ugly scar down my back but it doesn’t seem to bother me much.  My crate is my safe space so I have no issues hanging out in there with some toys. I sleep really well at night in my crate without a peep.  I am pretty good at going potty outside but sometimes I have a little accident.  If you are looking for a pint size snugggle bug, apply at buffalounderdogs.com. ##1899976##

Story
An interview with Rotini the water lovin’ dog!  How old are you?  In hooman years I’m 2. I don’t feel a day past one. You should see how high I can jump. It’s very impressive.  What is your breed?  What is a breed? What is your breed? My foster mom tells me she thinks I’m a pittie/boxer mix whatever that means. She also tells me breed doesn’t matter. It’s all about the looks and I’m one handsome devil.   Are you crate trained?  Yes. I’m happy to go in my crate for a treat. I’m quiet in my crate and I sleep in there all night. I’m such a big boy! Are you house trained? Yes. My foster mom is so proud of me. I’ve never had an accident, not even once.  Are you friendly? I’m the biggest lover once I know you. I’m a little leery of meeting new people at first but I warm up quickly especially if you feed me hot dogs. I’m such a goofy bundle of energy I might be a bit too much for small children.  Do you get along with other dogs?  I get so excited when it’s time to play with othe dogs I might forget my manners. I’m working hard to contain my excitement. I would do best in a home with a dog on the calmer side.  How are your leash skills?  I walk like a champ!! I don’t care for other dogs barking at me and I feel the need to bark back.  Foster mom and I are working on a “more appropriate response”. Woof! What are your hobbies? My favorite thing in the whole world is water, water and more water. If you have a hose, then you can entertain me for hours! Check out my video below . I think YouTube star is my calling.  After all that playing, I’m ready for a couch snooze. I’m not the energizer bunny. I need to recharge my batteries.  How can someone apply to adopt you?  Please visit www.buffalounderdogs.com/apply to fill out an application. I promise it’s the best decision you’ll ever make. I’m a real gem. ##1452107##

Rottweiler

Story
This handsome man is a 3yr old, 100lb Rottweiler/lab mix with so much love to give. He spends most of his time napping on the couch or chewing on a bone. Tank is crated during the day and goes in great with a small treat. He is house trained and sits by the back door to let us know he needs to go out. This guy is a total prince when it comes to going potty, so when he goes outside he will find a spot close to the door, do his business, and come back to the door immediately. Tank prefers to go outside only when necessary . He loves to do zoomies inside and outside if there’s snow on the ground. He knows “sit”, “down”, and “gentle” when taking treats and is very food motivated. He plays well with most dogs but needs a proper introduction. He loves car rides and going on adventures - he walks great on a leash, but can’t tolerate long walks/hikes due to a past paw injury. Tank would do best in a home without cats and if children are present, that they are 10 years of age or older. If you think he would fit right in apply at www.buffalounderdogs.com ##1487289##
