A volunteer writes: Buddy won several of my awards yesterday including: 1) best pouty underlip 2) best smile 3) best ears 4) best snuggler and that’s just for starters! He’s a puppy and amazingly calm and well mannered for a youngster, so just think of the potential once in his new home. Joining us when his person left him alone in an empty apartment, Buddy should have every reason to be wary of people and instead is welcoming, giving the best stand up hug and leaning in close. He sits when asked, takes treats gently, and when a staff person came outside to eat a bagel, Buddy’s imploring doe eyes and sweet face encouraged her to share with him. Smart boy! As other dogs passed us by he wagged his tail gently and in off leash play dates engages in rough, mouthy play. He is a puppy after all! Buddy is absolutely stunning, and while I didn’t mean to he was my last walk of the day and it was definitely saving the ‘best for last’. If a sweet, soft snuggle partner will complete your life, Buddy is ready to show you how appropriately he’s named……………..come meet him today. Another volunteer writes: I love this pup! He has the best pouty underlip on the planet, but that’s not why I love him. I love him because he’s the sweetest boy ever, fun, playful and silly from time to time, snuggly often, great on leash, seems to be housetrained, and when I tethered him to the wall to take pictures of another dog he waited and watched patiently. His tail wags gently as we snuggle, his eyes are deep and intelligent….he’s just the best! He’s an amazing puppy on the cusp of being an amazing adult and needs a person or family to guide him with structure and love the rest of the way. What a great addition he’ll be to an experienced home.
08/24/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Buddy came into our center after police found him left behind in an apartment. He pulled slightly on leash for his relief walk. Buddy was excitable upon entering SAFER assessment room, mouthing assessor’s hand with light pressure and nibbling, chewing leash. He allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, relaxed, slow wagging tail. Buddy leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, lip lick. He grabbed leash during Tag, requiring a reset by walking out of the room, but was unresponsive to each pass. Buddy did not pull his paw back on both Squeeze attempts, mouths assessor’s hand with no pressure. He playfully engaged with Toy, keeping a firm grip with loose body. When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Buddy engages in rough, mouthy play. He displays sexually motivated behavior toward female dogs when play slows down, however it should be taken into consideration that he is currently unaltered. The behavior team feels that Buddy may be adopted to a home with another playful dog. The Behavior Team feels Buddy would do best with an Experienced adopter. He will benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners and not to mouth. Any children should have an in depth interaction before considering adoption. Buddy would also benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of walks, runs, exercise, and play to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, relaxed, slow wag Sensitivity: 2. Dog leans into the Assessor, lip lick Tag: 2. Dog is unresponsive to touch, grabs leash, requires reset walk out of the room.

When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Buddy engages in rough, mouthy play. He displays sexually motivated behavior toward female dogs when play slows down, however it should be taken into consideration that he is currently unaltered. The behavior team feels that Buddy may be adopted to a home with another playful dog. Buddy arrived into our care as a stray, so there is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs, and it is unknown how his behavior will translate into a home setting. 9/1 update: Buddy engages in rough, mouthy play with another exuberant dog.
