Meet Buddy!

Buddy LOVES to play ball! He'll play with other retrieve toys but the ball is his favorite. Though he's always up for a ball game he also will settle well when he's had enough exercise. He does have some quirks and will need an owner who is okay with an eccentric guy. Some of his quirks are making Wookie noises when he wants something and staring and barking at an invisible ball if he wants to play and there's no game available.

When Buddy came to us he had some lacerations and bites that looked like he had been in a fight. One wound on the inside of his hind leg didn't heal well. X-rays showed that he had a 6 inch long metal plate in that leg and one of the screws was irritating the skin at that spot. It was recommended that he have the plate removed. He has had the surgery and is fully recovered. Everyone who handled him at both vet offices loved him!

Buddy can be a bit reserved with strangers but is friendly when he's allowed to approach on his own. Heprobably would be fine with older children. Though he's not aggressive toward other dogs they generally don't like his herding style of play and often react aggressively toward him. He will do best in a home where he's the only dog.

He knows his basic obedience commands, is crate trained and has good house manners.

Now that Buddy is finally finished with his vet care he's ready to start on his next adventure in life. If you're looking for an active new family member please call Karin, 540-272-0470, or email at
