Meet Buddy!

Buddy came into our care with an injury to his hind leg. After further investigation from our vets, they have determined that he will need amputation in order to live the most comfortable life possible.

Buddy is looking for a home that can give him all the care and love he deserves while going through this surgery and after. Buddy may have an irregularity with his heart, and there is a chance he might not have as much longevity as we would like, but he has so much love to give while he is here. Buddy will need to be kept very calm post surgery, but we expect him to heal up well and have good mobility long-term!

Buddy is a sweet little dog that would love a warm lap to sit on for most of the day. He does not like being left alone but does better with a dog friend by his side if his people have to leave him. Buddy is currently in foster with a cat and is fairly indifferent about this new companion.

If you think you could be Buddy’s person, please tell us what would make your home the best fit for him in the question “anything more you would like us to know?” on our adoption questionnaire.

*Buddy is not viewable in shelter and meet and greets will be scheduled by appointment only*

Thank you for your interest in adopting! Do you think you could be Buddy’s person? Apply today!

Friendly tip: If you’re looking for a surefire way to make your application to stand out, consider telling us a little bit about yourself in the “anything else you’d like us to know?” section! What brought you to adopt? Have you had any previous pets? What makes you the perfect match for this animal? Write as little or as much as you’d like!
