Meet Buddy ~ Adopted

Say hello to Buddy, he is approximately 10yrs old. He is good with other dogs and cats. He is house broken and enjoys going for walks and car rides. Buddy likes to nap and cuddle.

Buddy needs some special attention with his eyes, daily eye drops needed. He has some other minor medical conditions. He is neutered, has all his shots and is chipped.

Buddy has a little trouble seeing but not blind. He doesn't bark much but when he does it's pretty cute. He has plenty of spunk left in him. He will be a great addition to your home.

WAG RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY APPLICANT, so please understand that it is within our discretion to make those decisions on behalf of our animals. Keep in mind that we depend 100% on volunteers, most of whom have full-time jobs, so we ask for your understanding as we do the best we can in the endless effort to find homes for these deserving animals!
