Buddy the Third is tan and yellow with some white. He has the cutest brown ears that flop over just slightly.
Buddy the Third is a spry elderly gentleman who recently lost his loving owner and is ready for a new loving home! We aren't kidding when we say he is spry—at times it seems as if we have a 2-year-old dog in the house! He absolutely loves to go on walks, sleep, and get lots of pets.
Buddy currently lives with a cat, but because he doesn't see or hear very well, he doesn't always realize she is close to him. As a result, he'll get scared and bark at her; but he has never been aggressive. We think he would prefer a house without cats. He should be just fine with dogs who can understand dog body language. Buddy also wanted to say that he'd love and prefer a home with a fenced backyard, or if not, then with a family who would take him on several long walks daily where he can sniff to his heart's content!
Buddy loves to be along the periphery of the hustle and bustle of the home. He likes to keep tabs on everyone's whereabouts before he settles in for one of his many naps throughout the day (interspersed with mandatory petting sessions and outside time, of course!). He is great with people and has become attached to our whole family. Buddy is house-trained and crate-trained (he sleeps through the night in his crate without a peep and anytime we are out of the house).
Buddy the Third is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative. Although he doesn't see or hear very well, he does not appear to have any other serious medical issues.
Buddy the Third lived with his owner for 16 years until he recently passed away.
