More information about Buddy

Buddy was rehomed by SDR in June 2018, but sadly has been returned as his owner was unable to give him the attention he needed. Buddy took a couple of days to fully settle back into kennels but now he will bring his ball to you for a game of fetch when you enter his kennel.

His new owner will need to have experience with fearful/reactive dogs and ensure that he wears his muzzle when out in public.

Buddy can be a little nervous initially of new surroundings and people. However, if you take your time with him and do not force interaction he slowly comes around. Buddy loves his squeaky ball and this is usually a great way to start building trust with Buddy.

He is a fearful boy and is unsure when meeting new people, but as mentioned above given time, patience and space he will came around. The most important thing is not to put any pressure on Buddy or force him to interact if he isn’t ready.

Buddy knows a lot of commands but would benefit from the stimulation that comes with extra training. He may do well with some calming scent work as he has a great nose on him and loves to sniff. He will need to have at least two walks a day and have access to a good sized garden where he can play off lead with his toys.

Buddy was previously only left for shopping trips. It will be important for new owners to build up his home alone time gradually and not exceed more than four hours. If Buddy is going to be left home alone, ensure he has had a good walk prior to being left and leave him with his toys so he can occupy himself.

Buddy has a great appetite and is currently fed two meals a day. He is fed on Arden Grange Senior with a small amount of meat mixed in. He enjoys interactive feeding toys, which not only give his brain a work out, but also slows him down as he can eat his food a little too quickly at times.

Buddy will need to be the only pet in the home. He can be reactive towards other dogs and will chase cats if the opportunity were to arise.

Buddy will require a home with a good sized, fully enclosed garden with a 5ft fence. Due to his reactivity towards people and dogs and the fact he is required to wear a muzzle, Buddy will need to be kept on a long line when out walking through fields etc. He is looking for an active, but calm and quiet home with no children.

Once Buddy knows and trust you he is a lovely boy with lots of love to give. He loves playing with his ball and rolling around in the grass. In the right home with people who understand fearful/reactive dogs he will make someone a wonderful companion.
