Meet good boy Buddy.
Buddy is a sweet older fellow looking for a home where he can live out his golden years. Buddy has spent most of his life outdoors, and while he enjoys being inside, he can be anxious when left alone indoors. He loves spending time with people and would prefer a home where his family is around often. A consistent routine will help him gradually get used to being alone, which will help with his separation anxiety. Despite his age, Buddy still has a lot of ‘pep in his step’ and enjoys going for walks and on adventures before curling up with people on the couch for a nice nap. Buddy would do best in a home without cats as he has been reactive towards them in the past. He may do well with another calm, large breed male dog who is of the same energy level as him. Buddy does have a history of being a wanderer, so a fenced yard or on leash exercise is best.
If Buddy sounds like the perfect companion for you please follow the below steps.
