A volunteer writes: Buddy was indeed his family’s buddy….for all his life….his two young human siblings, their parents…. with all of whom he was relaxed and played gently. We’re told he doesn’t guard his things, doesn’t mind being brushed or getting a bath (but will exit as soon as you stop bathing him), loves to play, is crate trained, is well behaved when home alone, and knows ‘sit’, ‘come’ and ‘go’. Buddy is understandably confused at this major change in his life, and it’s clear he’s looking for his person as we walk to the park. Seeming to be very housetrained, Buddy peed endlessly as soon as we were out the door. He’s been beautifully taken care of, his coat is lush and shiny, his weight good for his size, and while a bit hand shy enjoyed some petting. Buddy showed off his sit and his eyes sparkled with a job well done as he took his treat softly. In the park he ignored passing dogs of all sizes, including a small yappy one who seemed to want to show us who’s boss! When Buddy gave me a stand up hug I knew it was a milestone…………..he’s a proven family dog, gorgeous, smart and ready to embark on a new adventure with his new family. We all need a best buddy, shouldn’t Buddy be yours?
Buddy A1078787 is a 4yr old neutered male black Labrador Retriever who was adopted from another shelter 4yrs ago and is being surrendered due to moving to where pets aren’t allowed. He was last seen by a veterinarian in 2014 and currently has no known health issues/injuries.
Around strangers Buddy friendly/outgoing. He’s lived with a 1yr & 8yr old and was gentle, exuberant, relaxed & playful with them also the adults in the home. Buddy hasn’t been around other animals but apppears shy around them when spotted outside during walks but after a few minutes attempts to engage them in play. Buddy hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal.
Buddy isn’t bothered by the following: having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being moved off of furniture, being brushed, bath time (he only struggles to get away when you stop bathing him). He hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting. And as long as someone keeps him distracted he doesn’t mind having his nails trimmed. If someone approaches the home/family member Buddy will bark to greet them.
For A New Family to Know:
Buddy is described as friendly, affectionate, very playful & confident with a high activity level. He enjoys playing. Buddy enjoys ball, rope, squeaky toys and games of fetch, chase & tug (sometimes). He’s an indoor/outdoor dog who sleeps on a dog bed/in his crate (where he’s placed in while the family is working) or on the floor. Buddy is walked 2-3x a day where he pulls on his leash at times. In his previous home Buddy was let out in the yard for air/exercise, he was well behaved in the yard and wasn’t destructive or left alone. Buddy eats dry & recently wet mixed in Pedigree dog food 2-3x a day. Buddy’s known commands are “sit”, “come” & “go”.
Buddy had a loose wiggly body and allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared and to be taken pictures of. Buddy sat nicely when asked and posed like a handsome pro. He walked alongside us and pulled a bit (he’s a strong boy) then jumped into the kennel on his own when asked.
Buddy pulls hard on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Buddy followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. He mouthed without applying pressure during the paw handling. Buddy was not interested in toys.
