Approx 3 years, Male, Size: Medium (short but long)
Buddy arrived with us at the beginning of October and has made so much progress since then!
He has been very poorly treated by people and did not trust us touching him, he was very frightened that someone is going to hurt him. These days he gets very excited to see us and we are greeted with a tail that won't stop and he loves to jump up for fuss, he can still be wary about more formal handling but when it's on his terms he feels comfortable enough to show us his goofy side!
He has an absolutely gorgeous face and a beautiful tail wag to match!
Buddy is extremely food focussed so will become very giddy around meal times or if a treat is available.
He needs a home that will allow him to come out of his shell in his own time which may take longer than expected but he cannot be rushed to do 'normal' doggy things as it will push his confidence back.
Buddy has recently started lead training and has been out on a couple of short walks but this his something his new family will need to help him with (staff can show you how best to guide him).
Buddy could live in a home with sensible 14 year olds and over. He needs a home that won't force this upon him and allows him to come and go from affection as he pleases.
