Buddy's Story

Need a Buddy? Look no further! This handsome pup is the ultimate people person. Cheerful, friendly, and bubbly, Buddy is a special guy. Buddy arrived at PAWS under tragic circumstances after his owners lost their home. He is now searching for a new home where he can give a lot of love!

The beauty of adopting an older dog is that they are often well trained. Buddy is a total gentleman in the home and is house trained. He knows a variety of commands and loves to show off for treats. When not being a perfect house guest, Buddy loves chasing tennis balls.

Buddy is not a fan of other dogs or animals, so he would like to be the only pet in his home. More attention for him! He is a strong boy, so an experienced handler would be great for him. Buddy has a lot to offer and would love the chance to meet you!
