Available Dogs - Buddy



Buddy is a wonderful high-energy 2 year old who is affectionate and outgoing and silly, and has a bit of a sensitive personality. Buddy is house- and crate-trained, loves walks, going with you to dog-friendly places, and playing with other dogs. 

Buddy would love daily walks or runs and needs daily exercise at this stage of his life. Will chase a ball some but really needs you or another playful dog to get his daily exercise. He's a gentleman in the house - most of the time. Buddy has a strong need to chew and needs "power chewer" things like antlers or kongs. He will "do surgery" on soft toys. Buddy also loves to steal paper towels or napkins or dishcloths or socks . . . and can have trouble giving them back. Buddy's owner will need to have a picked up house so he doesn't eat something like a dishcloth. He has some sensitivity to being grabbed by the collar so a leash works best. 

Buddy would be a perfect dog for a dog trainer or a dog training class junkie. He's playful and smart and active, and needs lots of love along with clear boundaries and consistent leadership to be his best dog. Buddy needs an experienced dog owner who can deal with the pushy side of his personality and maintain his good manners. He has lots of love to give in return.
