Buddy is ready for a wonderful home of his own and after all he's been through, he sure deserves the best.  Buddy came to us last fall in such a sad state.  He was starved to near death and his owner wrapped him tightly in a blanket and threw him out on the side of the road.  Buddy underwent extensive medical treatment to get back on his feet, and went into the foster care of our kennel supervisor for many months where he has put on weight, and has learned to become a healthy and happy dog.  Buddy is an incredibly nice guy that bonds deeply with those that he loves.  It takes him a little while to warm up to strangers, so he will need an experienced home with adopters that are committed to come in several times to meet him.  

Once he trusts and loves you, he will truly love you.  He'll plop on your lap and never want to leave.  He'll play with toys with you, cuddle up with you, and be the best dog ever.  He's only about 4 years old and he gets along with some dogs that he meets.  If you're interested in meeting Buddy, please call our kennel supervisor, Tiffany, for an appointment, and for more info. on Buddy.  609-693-1900
