Dog of the Week: Buddy

Hi Everyone! My name is Buddy! I am an absolutely adorable terrier/pit bull mix with a rust-colored coat. I am estimated to be 1 to 2 years old.

I was found as a stray and brought into the shelter. Since I arrived, I have been very calm. I have a lot of old and new wounds on my body, in particular on my front legs. The wonderful people at the shelter have treated all my wounds and soon I will be good as new!

I was tested with some other dogs at the shelter and was very friendly and wanted to play. I didn’t show much interest in cats, except for the ones that make noise; I try to avoid those!

When I get some one-on-one time with people in a dog run, I am quite content with just resting my chin on your leg and having you pet me.

I desperately need a nice home to heal in. Please bring me home!
