#3003 Buddy

ID #: 3003 Age: 2 yrs Gender: male Status: available

Hi everyone ~ my name is Buddy and I’m two years old.  I’m a big boy with lots of energy and I’m what you humans call an ‘alpha’.  I like to dominate and can be a bit stubborn if I don’t get my way; however, if a member of my family is also an alpha giving me consistent boundaries and rules, I will conform.  I just need to know who’s the boss.  But don’t get me wrong, I love people and love being petted and made a fuss over.  I also love my balls.  I’m a bit ball crazy in fact, so if you like playing catch in the backyard, I’m your boy.  Speaking of backyards, I’d be best with someone who is happy to play with me in the backyard most of the time rather than going out in the world.  You see, I’m not great with other dogs so when we’re out for walks and I see another dog, I can get antsy.  This foible of mine might improve over time with some more training and consistent socialization and patience, but for now other dogs and me…not so much.  Now what else can I tell you.  Let me see…hmmm!  Loud noises don’t bother me.  You can touch me anywhere.  I understand that you have to leave me alone at times and I’m fine with that.  I can be a bit cautious when I meet new people but once I get to know you, I’m fine.  I’m pretty calm when I meet adults and don’t get too excited or jump up.  I just need a bit of time to get introduced.  I’m a happy, confident boy who would make a great companion if you’re happy to have me at home most of the time and, if you happen to have a big secure backyard, so much the better.  I’m SO looking forward to being your ‘buddy’ (haha).

Buddy is currently being fostered in the Newmarket, ON area. If you would like more information about Buddy please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
