Meet Buddy! His foster mom describes him as an ideal dog She feels like he once lived with a loving family, but sadly was never reclaimed. But after rescuing him from a high kill shelter, he is sharing his love with his foster family, until he finds his forever home. Buddy is a super sweet 2 yr old male Shepherd/Bassett mix--well that is a guess He is a great medium size, at just over 30#. He is already housebroken, has been a fast learner for basic obedience and easy to train. He gets along great with his foster sister dogs and all the cats. Buddys favorite place in the house is where ever the people are - he especially loves sitting on the couch and watching TV, but will content himself with laying on the floor watching the humans fold laundry or prepare dinner. He happily spends time lounging in his crate when the door is left open. The ideal home for sweet Buddy Boy will have a child (or children) of his very own - 5 yrs or older would be great since Buddy LOVES to run. He will chase a ball and sometimes bring it back (we're working on it!!). It would be great if his forever home had a fenced in yard so he could do laps, but he is pretty good with walking on a leash too. Buddy is generally very quiet, even when the doorbell rings. He is very easy going, and just plain Happy. He has very expressive eyes that will melt your heart ...you WILL be kissed!
