Meet Buddy

Looking for a dog who’s beyond the puppy chewing and potty-training stage? Buddy is your guy! He is a low-maintenance pup. He will nap all day unsupervised and calmly greet you when you get home from work. He loves walks and knows exactly when it is okay to go to the bathroom; he never has accidents in the house. Squeaky toys are Buddy's favorite. Even extra-tough squishy toys last about 15 minutes before the fluff is strewn around him, but he knows the difference between toys and valuables. He can be left alone with pillows, couches, shoes, and even his bag of food and he won't so much as consider a bite. Buddy's doleful brown eyes could melt the Grinch's heart, and no one can resist his soft belly when he begs for pets. This 8-9 year old heeler was dumped at a kill shelter by his family only because he was an older dog now, who walks a little slower and doesn't play as much anymore. While he is reactive on the leash, he can be easily re-directed. He is looking to be an only dog in his forever home. While he would love a fence backyard, it is not a requirement for adopting Buddy as long as his adopter can provide him the daily walk that he needs. He is ready to enjoy the slower pace of life and snoozing on the couch all day long with lots of outside time to enjoy all the smells and sights.
