Buddy's Story

Buddy is a 12 or 13 year old Maltese cross. Based on his bat ears, our best guess is Chihuahua. He generally spends his days snoozing, but he LOVES walks, treats, and greeting his person with little yips and dances when they get home. He's had all his teeth removed but that doesn't stop him from eating dinner and eating treats like a champ (he says more please!). 

 

Buddy gets along with the resident dogs that were in the home before him, but he tends to dislike new animals in his space and can react aggressively to new animals. He does fine by himself when his foster family is out of the home but he would LOVE someone that could be home with him and dote on him and/or carry him around.

 

Buddy comes from a somewhat traumatic past and thus he is anxious and fearful with quick movements and pets towards him. For this reason, he would like a home with no small children. He shows his love by following his person around and, with time, asking to join you on the couch near you.

 

This pocket sized old man will go pee outside regularly and tells you when he needs to go with some quick barks in the morning. However, he does mark, so its best to use a belly band when no one is around to let him out.

 

 Medical considerations:

- crystals in urine being managed with urinary care vet food. Please monitor with regular blood work.

-no teeth, softening food with water is perfect for him. 

-he is prone to ear infections, so this will need to be monitored and may need cleanings or regular ear drops. Currently, no infections.

-some seasonal allergies that make his eyes more weepy/crusty. No treatment given at this time

Have some questions about him or would like to meet Buddy? The first step is to apply here. Please note that we adopt based on the best fit for the animal and not first come first serve.
