Buddy is a handsome and fluffy 6 year old Chow/Sharpei Mix who cant get enough affection. He had a rough start in life down in North Carolina, but was rescued and brought to Vermont by his former owners. Giving him up was the hardest thing they had to do, but unfortunately their life circumstances changed and they were left with no choice. Buddy is definitely a “family man” and forms strong bonds with the humans in his household. Sweet and attention-loving towards people, he isn’t able to be around other dogs, cats, or small animals. His former owner had this to say: “He just hates other animals the like I hate brussel sprouts. He is the best dog in the world except for that one minor character flaw. He is my cholesterol dog (LDL): Loyal, Dopey and Lazy”. Housetrained and a quiet couch potato, his ideal home would be with a relaxed, adult family who lived in a more rural location, so that he can go on walks and not have to worry about interacting with other dogs. Trained to sit, stay, heel and walk on leash, Buddy would be a wonderful companion canine for a calm and nurturing home. He enjoys stuffed toys, but otherwise is low-key and doesn’t engage in rigorous play. Buddy adores car rides and will happily relax in the back seat while you cruise. So, if you’re on the lookout for buddy like Buddy, come meet him and see if you can offer him the happy ending he needs and deserves.
