Bucky was found wandering as a stray and so we have no insights into his history, but we do get the feeling that he enjoys receiving all of the attention in the world. He may be just a little shy when first meeting someone new, but overall he is a friendly and affectionate boy who loves the company of people and who loves to play with toys, and more than anything he loves going for long walks.
Bucky is energetic and enjoys tossing balls and squeaky toys around. He would do great with a person who spends lots of time outdoors and is looking for a fun and playful adventure companion, with very cute feet! Bucky has done well being around the other dogs at the shelter, so he could be a candidate for living with another dog. He has a strong reaction to cats and would find it difficult to coexist with a cat in the home.
Bucky has been having a hard time adjusting to shelter life as he’s not into being left alone too much, so if you think that Bucky might be the one for you, please let us know right away by submitting an online application or contacting the shelter 🙂
