Meet Airbud

Hello everyone, I would like to reintroduce myself since it's been a while. I'm Airbud and let me tell you, I have come a long ways in the last several months. From learning to adjust to living in a home setting; getting fully potty trained to enjoying naps in my kennel, life has gotten better. I'm full of love, really. In fact, I love bones and treats, car rides and ice cream cones - they are my favorite!

I'm proud to say that I have completed basic obedience class, which means I can sit, stay, lay down and catch treats in the air! Woof! I love doing fun things like climbing and running in the woods; I have great recall skills off leash even. I'm not destructive when you're gone either. I'm more into watching out the window and taking naps on the couch. Honestly though, what I really hate is to be alone. So, another dog in my home who is on the calmer side would be best for my anxiety that I have struggled with all my life. (Heck, we all have a few flaws though, right?)

I have started a new medication here to try to manage my anxiety better so I can have a better life. I just love my people so much that I really want them with me all the time. My anxiety tends to kick in mostly when new people come over and I need to be in my kennel in order for me to calm down. Then meeting new people on a leash tends to work good.

Now, I just need to find this person who will fight for me and believe in me like my foster mom has. She has kept me safe and calmed me when I needed it and I have been there to calm her when she needed it most too. We make a good team, but she isn't my final stop. She knows there is someone out there that can give me all the attention I so deserve. So, I'm bound and determined to find it!

Everyone that has been patient and gotten to know me past my anxiety has absolutely fallen in love with me. I am muzzle trained too, so when new people come over I can safely meet them. I have never hurt anyone before, but I have gotten a bit nervous and nippy with the new human hands. Please know that I am a great protector though, so NO one will come in your...-our house at night cause they won't get past me. I can promise you that. I'll keep you safe if you keep me safe!

I spent a lot of time in the shelter -like almost 3 years and then the last 6 months in foster care. So, do the math; I have never really had a home. Well, okay, yeah that could be because I have a terrible first impression, but I'm working on that every day. If you are an experienced dog owner and willing to take my paw and welcome me into your home, we'll be like Batman and Robin. The perfect duo! Boy, I want nothing more than a home for the holidays with my own family. So, paws crossed!

Notes from foster mom:

"Airbud is a great dog that has so many great qualities that out weigh this anxiety. He can overcome this with the proper environment and family. He would also be a great candidate for agility classes. If he wants to, he can easily jump a 6 foot fence. He will not jump unless he is looking for you though. So he doesn't just randomly jump for fun. He is fast and has a great hound nose. It is a joy to be fostering him, but this boy deserves his own home. Airbud struggles with loud noises like fireworks or gunshots, just like so many other dogs. So he will simply resort to his kennel as that is his safe spot. So please, help us by sharing this post to get this boy a home he never had!!!"
