He is a Scruffy terrier mix, about 2 years old and weighs around 12 pounds. Buster was found as a stray in western Oklahoma. PPAWS tagged him back in September. Once we got him, we realized just how special he was. His foster got him home and worked with him for some time. It was determined that they were not progressing with his social skills. PPAWS had him evaluated by a professional to help determine what we could do to help with his social skills. It was determined he was going to need a change of home, and some intense training. So we upset his routine and moved him to a new foster with instructions on how to bring him around. What we have determined is that he is very fearful. Fearful of people, sounds, and kids. With the changes we have found that he is a very funny, loving, scruffy, ornery terrier.
So now we start looking for that forever home for Buster. We will have to be very careful selecting his new home so that he does not revert back to that crate seclusion, people fearing dog.
His forever home will need the following:
Fenced yard, (with now weak spots). He has found every possible hole or low spot at his fosters home.
No Small kids, under 10.
Experience with fearful dogs.
A partner dog.
A quiet home.
Patience, and kind so he does not revert back to his fearful self.
Wire Crate, He likes his safe place, but should not be allowed to hide in a plastic kennel.
Able to handle Ornery, he knows his way around the kitchen table top. He likes to chew on most everything, he was teaching himself to knit, and takes your socks to his kennel if you don’t pick them up. He has also read a couple books. Basically you need lots of toys, chews and supervision!
As you can see, this boy is very special and will take a very special home. He is not a lap dog, but if you get down to his level he will let you give belly rubs and scratch to your heart's desire.
