Bucky is a 7 year old little fluffster that was found as a stray in early December in such sad shape.  Bucky was thin, un-groomed, and he had some medical issues that needed tending to.  It's understandable that Bucky has trust issues because someone sure let him down in life.  We've taken care of his medical needs and now he just needs a special person to come in and give him a chance.  Bucky is not going to be your best buddy the first time he meets you.....or the second time.  The truth is, it may take Bucky a few visits with you for him to let his guard down and begin to show you his true self.  When Bucky trusts someone, he's spunky and sweet, he loves to give kisses and get lots of attention.  It's just a matter of getting to that point with him.

Bucky is a good boy that could really be your best buddy if you're patient with him.  He seems fine with other dogs but he will need a kid and cat-free home.  Bucky is housebroken, good on a leash, and he loves his toys too.  If you can open your heart and home to our little Bucky, call 609-693-1900 or email: for an application.  File#29945  12/11/20
