Hi I’m Buddy. When NQAR rescued me I was found to be heartworm positive. Now I’ve finished my treatment and am heartworm free. However, I will need another blood test in January just to make sure. I’ve been in foster care a long time while being treated but now the vet says I can start looking for a forever home of my own.
I’m a happy friendly boy who likes to play but I’m also happy to just lie at your feet and hang out with my humans. I’m a very affectionate boy but, look out, because I have a very long tongue. Since I’ve been in foster care I have been living with young kids, chooks, ducks and other dogs. We have all been getting along well except I’d really like to chase the chooks. I would love another playful doggy friend as I love to run and play.
I am learning some basic commands, I am good at paying attention and am a very fast learner. I am very food motivated which is great for training. I walk well on a halti but we are still working on not pulling when only on a lead. I am also happy to stay by your side while walking off lead and I have excellent recall. I am crate / pen trained as while I was undergoing heartworm treatment I was only allowed very restricted exercise. I would excel at obedience with someone willing to put in the training required. I bark when someone new arrives but stop as soon as you tell me to and greet them nicely. I learn quickly who regular visitors are and don’t bark at them once I know you know them.
I would be suited to most homes, although I would prefer a home with another doggy friend, especially if you work away from home a lot.
I would love to meet you, please contact NQAR if you would like to meet me too.
Buddy is $300 to adopt, desexed, microchipped, C5 vaccinated and given flea, tick and worm preventatives.
