I took in Buddy as a stray about 18 months ago even though I already had 2 dogs of my own and my son came home and brought his dog. Buddy is very sweet and initially got along with all the dogs. I believe he may have been abused so certain things trigger him. He’s by no means vicious however he reacts to the other dogs that may step on him or come near what he considers his. He looks at me with sick appreciation and I can tell he’s so sorry when he snaps with the other dogs. He loves to take walks and loves to cuddle. He’s not the best with children and other animals but I truly believe this little guy would be a wonderful pet for a home with 1-2 people, no children and no other animals. Upon getting Buddy in such poor condition I had to have all but 3 teeth removed. He eats soft food and is otherwise in good health. My vet said he’s between 8-12 years old. Please help me find a forever home for this wonderful little guy.
