Additional information
d.o.b: Nov 7, 08:Buddy is really smart and willing to please, so would do well with one-on-one obedience training and/or agility training. He has the drive and the energy. LOVES his person! Very devoted.Buddy is seeking an active person/couple who would love to have a running buddy beside them every day, with a 6' high fenced-in yard..wooden stockade with smooth side on your side of fence would be best.He is housebroken.Buddy is neutered, micro-chipped, on heart worm & flea/tick prevention, and current on all vax.He was originally adopted from H4S in late 2008 by a lovely family with 3 children. SA few months later, dad lost his job, the house and they moved from a home with fenced-in yard to townhouse, which did not suit Buddy's need to run and play full-heartedly.Then, to top it off, 'Dad' admitted that while he was at work, and while under Mom's care, the family's 4yo was not kind to Buddy. So, when Buddy growled at the toddler for the excessive abuse/teasing he was having to endure, they decided that he had to go.Buddy has a wonderful sense of enthusiasm & is very devoted to his person. In the a.m. he's so happy everyone is up and it's a new day, he jumps straight up in the air with pure JOY! He does the same thing when he sees a bird, too...that's a 'bird dog' for you!Yo apply to adopt this VERY SWEET, gentle and friendly best Buddy, please copy and paste the app below in to a new email, complete all questions(incomplete apps will be discarded), and forward to: h4s_cares@yahoo.comHis adoption fee is $225(includes all medical, microchip, Martindale collar, current health certificate-issued within 5 of transport...& transported from western NC to as far as NY/CT line each 3rd Sat/each month).-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **Howlin4Spirit Companion Animal Rescue** **Adoption Application** We realize, in a logical perspective, that we are not going to be able to broadly change the World.
