Hi! My Name Is Buddy

We're happy to tell you that Buddy has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Buddy was left alone at a tiny shelter after a spat with another male dog in his home.  His advocates at the shelter immediately recognized what a sensitive, beautiful, and kind boy he was and knew this was no place for a heartbroken guy to heal.  When Buddy arrived at ABR, we discovered that he is all of that and more.  He is so so grateful for any human affection and to make new friends.  He's pleasant and tolerant of other dogs when he sees them out and about -- even spending part of his freedom ride sitting calmly beside nervous mama Rhiannon.  And he's finally starting to show his playful side and enjoy life again.  Buddy can be a bit of a bully in a china shop when he really gets going, so we would recommend older kids for him, if any.  And he's not thoroughly been tested by us with other dogs in the home, so we think that he'd be best as your one and only or with a calm female dog.  He's certainly pleased to be the center of attention in his foster home, though.
