About Me

Buddy needs a home local to the centre due to the frequent visits he will require to trust someone and will then need to be close by for support. Hello I am a very anxious little dog and will need someone very experienced and patient to love me. I am spending time in foster with a member of staff. Buddy is extremely worried by strangers, will require adult only home as fearful of children. HE CAN NOT LIVE WITH CHILDREN, or be around visiting children. Buddy likes walking with other dogs, Could live with an easy going dog. Not suited to live with cats. House trained, travels OK, fine left alone for a few hours. Buddy has handling issues around people he does not know and can possibly resource guard, will require experienced, knowledgeable home for on-going support and training. May also be better in a single adult home. He is very clever and is currently enjoying fun agility. Buddy is very vocal and always will be. Buddy is loyal and a loveable dog, but needs a very specific home. Potential adopters must be aware it may take 6 months or more before he will show affection and allow them to stroke him without feeling cautious.
