Buffalo always gets compliments on his gorgeous tan and brown brindle coat, and he has a white patch on his chest.
Buffalo is truly a one-of-a-kind goofball. Belly rubs and snuggles might be his favorite things in the world; but he makes time in his busy schedule to bring and show off his toys so that you can admire them and tell him what a good boy he is. He especially loves tennis balls, and we play living room fetch as one of his special treats—where we roll the ball across the floor and he gets to find it and bring it back. This lasts for about 4 tosses before he decides he needs to really put some work into ripping the fluff off of it.
Buffalo loves taking naps in his crate, or really anywhere around the apartment. He’s house-trained and knows his basic commands (Sit, Stay, Come, Lay down, and Go to your crate). He has not had any issues with inappropriate chewing or separation anxiety.
Buffalo recently recovered from knee surgery and is trying to become a couch potato after being on activity restriction; so he will need to be encouraged to take walks and continue building up the muscle strength in his knee. With his people and his doggie pal at home, he is very calm and laid-back; but meeting new friends is just so exciting! We have worked with him on jumping and he is doing well. But he may overwhelm a more shy dog or a small child.
Buffalo would be happy as an only dog where he could be spoiled, or could be a great addition to a family with another dog with a compatible energy level and personality. He is an all-around amazing dog who makes a fan of everyone he meets!
Buffalo is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative. He has sensitive skin, so his diet should be kept consistent and he needs medicated shampoo for baths.
Buffalo's family could no longer care for him.
