The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
This active youngster is 3 years old and weighs approximately 15 lbs. Although he cannot sing, he does give out a little woof if someone comes to the door and he’ll greet the person with his tail wagging. He seems to like females more than males, perhaps because they are not so big and intimidating. Otherwise, he’s a fairly laid back fellow. He gets along well with other dogs and kids.
Of course having been in a puppy mill, this little tyke likes to explore everything and according to the veterinarian who saw him, he is in perfect health. He is so excited being in his new surroundings and particularly likes standing in front of the stove where he can see his reflection – and that gets his little tail wagging again!
When he first arrived, he needed thorough teeth cleaning and only two had to be removed. Since he lived for a long time in a crate, he is still learning about the importance of doing his business outside but is making good progress. Once he is fully trained, he will make a wonderful companion, says his foster mom because he is “so well behaved.” He rarely barks so would suit apartment living as well.
Buddy Holly is neutered, up-to-date on his routine shots and heartworm tested. It is advised that he not go to a home with children under 12 years of age. If you are interested in learning more about him or would like to adopt, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and put ‘Pet Inquiry: Buddy Holly - NEW PFId#25385982’ in the subject line.
