10 year old • Male • 58 lbs
Lieutenant Buddy is tan with a lot of white markings.
Lieutenant Buddy is a super-loving, sweet boy. He loves to go on walks and just as much enjoys lounging around the house. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body, his tail wags all the time, and he loves to have his head rubbed. Buddy sleeps through the night, is housebroken, good on a leash, and likes other dogs. He occasionally munches on his chew toys and really loves his treats. Buddy is working on all his basic commands.
Lieutenant Buddy is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He is heartworm positive but is on a slow, gentle protocol. Most dogs will test negative within a year; some IAR foster dogs have even tested negative in 7 to 11 months. No confinement is required, and he can do most normal activities, although he shouldn't be allowed to run until cured.
Lieutenant Buddy was a stray who came to us from a rural shelter.
