REPORTED BY FORMER OWNER: Loves swimming, open fields and long trail walks. Good with small breed dogs. Favorite toy is a water hose! OBSERVED BY SHELTER STAFF: Buddah is such an awesome dog! Wow - we cannot get over how great he is! He is great with people, loves to play rough and rowdy with people and toys (former owner did state he could get possessive with toys around other dogs). He has been a rock star in our dog playgroups at the shelter. When indoors, he appears house trained and will soak up as much attention as youll give! He will gently nudge your hand if you stop petting him. Hes also happy to lay down on a dog bed and entertain himself. He likes to play fetch and will bring the ball right back to you and drop it at your feet. He would hoard the tennis balls if you let him! OBSERVED BY TRAINER; Such a happy boy! He looks shy and unsure in his kennel, but as soon as you get him into the play yard he just wants to run around with the other dogs. He can get a bit tense, so I recommend more submissive dogs if he is going to live with other dogs, and as always, a calm, consistent owner who can help him make good choices and behave appropriately in public. He seems timid around corrections, and is actually quite sensitive. Being a black dog, Buddah is at a disadvantage because black animals get overlooked in a shelter environment please seek him out! Hes a great dog! Weighs 63 pounds; $25 to adopt.
