Buddy is a striking young adult male with a loving personality. A very unique coat of brindle and blue merle with border collie markings makes him one handsome dude with five different colors in his coat. He is short and stocky, weighing only 30 pounds which makes him easy to handle and small enough to be the lap dog he wants to be. Lots of possibilities as to breed mix but corgi, cattle dog and border collie are surely in his lineage.
Being smart and food motivated makes Buddy easy to train and fun to be around. We have had him to three beginners obedience class sessions and he is the star of the class. We take him more to work on his socialization skills than his obedience. Buddy is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, up to date on all vaccinations, house and crate trained, gets along with the other dogs and a cat living with him, rides well, walks well on leash and is starting to feel comfortable just being a dog.
On the downside, Buddy is not much into playing any of the human games but does entertain himself for hours with his own toys. Buddy is happiest when his people are near. Buddy will do well in a quiet home with no young children as fast movement and loud noises still startle him. No apartments or condos will be considered for the same reason. A large securely fenced yard is also considered mandatory as Buddy enjoys basking in the sun and needs room to run.
Buddy likes to play “catch me if you can” with other dogs but would do equally well as an only furry child as he does like all the attention. If you would like to meet Buddy, he is being fostered near Burlington, North Carolina, and loves to entertain visitors.
