Hi hi hi everybody! My name is Buddy and I am a very unique and fun 8-month old! Unique because I am part basset hound and, we think, part Swiss mountain dog (but look at me, that equation equals ALL adorable!). I am looking for a family to spend my forever with, and I bet that could be you!
I came to California from Oklahoma on the latest Hound Haul. I don’t remember a lot about my babyhood, but I woke up one day and was in a scary place called a shelter. I’m not sure why anyone would leave me there, I am a very sweet and friendly boy. I like all the normal puppy things, like playing and chewing on toys, but I also love to cuddle with people and steal a nap on the couch. But perhaps all’s well that ends well, because I caught a ride west with BHRSC and now I am here and ready to be part of your family!
I am doing well with my training program—I am 95% house-trained! The only thing we are finishing up that you may need to help me out with is getting through the night. Crate-training is helping, but that last little bit of reinforcement at your house will seal the deal, I’m sure. I am also learning how to be a gentleman on a leash, and I could be a great walking or hiking partner. Mountains are in my blood, after all!
I get along with other dogs and am learning my mealtime manners as well. As a youth, I get so excited about mealtime that sometimes I would barge in on other dogs. But we are working on that. I have made a lot of progress and I think if we keep up those patterns at your house, I will soon be ready to dine with the Queen!
What do you think? Does an easy-going, loving, fun young hound sound like just what your family has been waiting for? Call BHRSC and let’s meet ASAP to confirm it!
Buddy is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. His adoption fee is $800.
