Meet Buddy Holly - ADOPTED

Foster Parent Report - September 2013
Buddy Holly continues to enjoy life outside of a puppy mill! He has made so many gains since entering foster care. He has recently begun to trust humans and will happily greet new people who come to the home. He even allows visitors to pet him, something he would never do six months ago! Buddy enjoys the outdoors, but especially loves to run! A home with a backyard would be ideal for him. He enjoys his daily walks, squirrel stalking and keeping his eye on the neighbourhood cats. Buddy went on vacation this summer, and loved playing in the lake. He is a big snuggler, and will cozy up to you on the couch. Watch out, he’ll hog all the blankets if you let him! The only thing that would make his little life complete would be a home and family to call his own!
( Note: For experienced dog owner only)
Foster Parent Report - March 2013
Buddy has adjusted to life outside of a puppy mill very well.
He is working very hard at his training. Now that he is on a routine, he is house trained. Buddy has already learned some basic commands like 'sit.' He loves to go for walks, and has become very playful! He is happiest cuddling on the couch, or lying in his bed with a bone.
Buddy adores other animals, although some care must be taken when introducing him. Buddy gains a lot of comfort and confidence from his canine foster siblings. He must go to a home with another dog. He also loves cats! He will require a patient and attentive forever home, but once you have earned his trust you will have a buddy for life!!
