Adoption Status: Adopted

Buddy spent the first year of his life being rejected and unwanted. He has been through 4 homes in his short life, one of which tried to euthanize him simply because they "didn't want a dog anymore". I learned about Buddy when his last "family" abandoned him on the street, leaving him to fend for himself. With the help of a good-hearted stranger and a massive amount of luck, I was able to find Buddy and get him off the streets.

Buddy is a one year old male with a wonderful personality! He walks well on a leash and loves other dogs. He plays well with cats and is always gentle with them. He loves just about everyone he meets and is great with children. He has lots of energy and loves to play. Buddy would be an ideal pet for a family with children. He loves playing in open spaces, so a family planning to move somewhere with a yard would be perfect. He loves running and can run up to 3 miles with me.

That being said, he is also quite happy living in an apartment. He is house broken and crate trained. He doesn't chew anything except for his toys and loves to chase tennis balls. He is incredibly smart and has learned basic commands like "sit", "stay" and "down". He is current on all his puppy shots but needs to be neutered.

If you think Buddy would be a good fit for you, please contact me!

Does he bark a lot? What about being left home alone during the day while someone is at work? Do you think he would bark so much as to annoy the neighbors? I read that if you make sure to take them for plenty of walks, dogs might not bark too much when left in the apartment. I ask because I've heard of people having to get rid of their pets here because of neighbor complaints.

When you take your dog out to go to the bathroom, are there any specific laws about where they can go? I know you have to pick up the poop, but can they just go on any sidewalk? That seems kind of strange to me, but I don't see where else they would go living in the city. How much do you spend per month on food for Buddy?

I'm just thinking about adopting a cat or dog, but these questions might also help someone else thinking about adopting Buddy. He actually looks exactly like our family dog at home! Cute. I hope all of the dogs on this page find a home soon.

Buddy is a very quiet pup. He sleeps in his crate while we are at work and he does not bark. We let him listen to the TV while we are gone. He makes noises when he plays with other dogs, but it's more a a snorting pig sound rather than a bark (it's pretty adorable). He gets lots of outdoor time which is why he does so well in a crate and being left alone. We go running together in the mornings (usually 2-3 miles) and he gets one short walk afterwards. We will go on 2 longer walks in the evening. I also checked with my landlord and neighbors before getting a dog to be sure there would be no issues, which is important to do before you get ready to adopt.

When he goes to the bathroom, we pick it up in plastic bags and have a little trash can we put the bags in, using the city-issued trash bags. They can walk anywhere as long as it's not private property and they love going to the river parks as long as they are on their leash.

I spend about 50,000 a month on food for Buddy. I buy Orijen dry food for him for the mornings and I make my own dog food for him in the evenings. I use my slow cooker to cook barley, brown rice, carrots, greens, squash, bananas and apples. It helps keep the cost down and it's a good dose of fresh veggies for him. (side note: making your own dog food at home requires the addition of supplements and vitamins, which I don't have. That's why I still feed the dry food in the mornings.)

I hope this answers your questions :)
