Breed:Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever / Border Collie
Notes: altered, hasShots, housebroken
My name is Buddy. I found my way to the Saint Bernard Rescue on the 4th of July. Everyone was out celebrating independence, and I guess my old owner wanted some freedom too (from ME!), so he dumped me along side the road to "be free in the country". I chased his car as long as I could, but he drove away so fast. I am a fast runner, but not THAT fast. Luckily, foster Mom & Dad were driving past, and watched what happened. They opened the car door and called to me, and I hopped right in (I love car rides). Who knew I would shortly have 5 Saint Bernard sized friends? But I love them all, even though I am only half their size (50 lbs). I, myself, am about a year old. I am crate trained, housebroken, and rarely bark. I am a good eater, and I come when called (even though they had to give me a new name). I got shots and neutered last week, and Mom seemed quite pleased when she said I tested "heartworm negative". I have lots of energy (my Saint friends are lazy, let me tell you), and so Mom crates me when she goes away, as I like to carry clothes all around the house from the hamper, stand up on the counter and remove treasures from the trash cans (Mom doesn't seem to care for that). Dad got kind of mad too, when I went out and had a nice roll in the horse manure. But, I love to cuddle in laps, and sleep in the bed (after I got a bath from the horse poop), and I would make some lucky family a wonderful pet. I am cute and sweet, and I am looking for an active family that will exercise me and take me places. Another dog friend would be fun too. I don't photograph well (Mom says) as I always put my ears back when the camera comes near (what IS that thing?), so my photos also have my Saint pal in them for reassurance. I am being fostered in the Houston, TX area.
