Buddy is an 11 year old unneutered male Cocker Spaniel that is currently blind and deaf. Owner had Buddy for about 10 ½ years but had to surrender due to medical issues.
According to the owner, around strangers Buddy is friendly and loves to give kisses. He has been around children ages baby to teenagers & was always relaxed and respectful of them. Buddy lived with a cat in the home for about 2 years & was always respectful of the cat. Owner stated that the cat would try to play with him and he would just lay there. He has not lived with dogs in the home but around dogs on the street he would bark at them and be curious to approach them. Buddy has never bit another animal or person while in the care of the owner.
Buddy is not bothered by thunderstorms/fireworks, having his food, treats or toys taken away, being pushed off furniture, being given a bath, being held/ restrained, or when unfamiliar people would approach the home or yard. When the owner would try to trim Buddy’s nails, he would struggle to get away.
For a New Family to Know:
Buddy is described as friendly, affectionate, mellow, and excitable with a low activity level. In the home, he liked to stay in his favorite spot. His favorite activity in the home was to sleep. Buddy does not like to play with toys and would rather lounge around instead. Buddy was kept indoors only & is partially house trained. Owner stated that over the last few months, he started having trouble with controlling his bowels and usually urinates and defecates in the home. When owner would leave Buddy alone in the home, he was well behaved. Buddy has never been crate trained therefore behavior is unknown. For exercise, owner would take Buddy on slow walks outside by the home & stated that Buddy does not pull on the leash. Owner was unable to walk Buddy off leash as Buddy is blind. In the home, owner fed Buddy dry food only brand name Dog Chow.
Behavior during intake: Buddy was relaxed during intake. I Was able to scan him for a mc, collar him and take his picture without any issues. Buddy was giving me kisses during intake.
