02/28/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Age is really just a number! Buster may be considered “middle aged”, but this guy is the best combination of puppy-like and a little more seasoned than you can ask for. Buster is rather mellow, easy to walk on the leash and seems housetrained. He knows how to sit on command and even give paw when you ask him to! He loves food and will bond easily over a few snacks. But when you give him a ball, his younger, more playful side comes out. He will chase after the ball, attempt to catch it in mid-air, and then play a little game of solo soccer, batting it around with his paws. Buster is the ideal companion for someone who wants a friend ready to take long walks or play at the park, but doesn’t want all the demands of a high energy puppy. Ask to meet him today!
