Introducing Buddy, a striking young adult male with a laid back personality. A very unique coat of brindle and blue merle makes him one handsome dude with four different colors in his coat. He is short and solid built, weighing only 34 pounds which makes him easy to handle and small enough to be the lap dog he desires to be. Lots of possibilities as to breed mix but corgi, cattle dog and border collie are surely in his lineage.
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 excellent on loose 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 he is near his people so he will require someone at home with him most of the time. He will do well in a quiet home with no children as fast movement and loud noises still upset him. No apartments or condos will be considered for the same reason. A securely fenced yard is also 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 believe he would do better as an only furry friend as he does like all the attention.
A familiarity of the herding dog characteristics will go a long way in understanding Buddy and proactively recognizing when he requires help in understanding a new situation. If you feel up to the challenge and would like to meet Buddy, he is being fostered near Burlington, N.C., and loves to entertain visitors, especially if they bring treats.
Applicants must have a satisfactory vet reference which includes an annual exam, vaccines, a heartworm test, and purchase of monthly, year-round heartworm preventatives.Adopt Me!
