Age:    6 years
Sex:     Male
Color:  Tan and White


Buddy can’t wait to be your Easter buddy!  This fellow came to Dakin from Tennessee.  We don’t have much information about his past, but we do know some things, based on his behavior, about what type of home and family he should have.  First of all, no cats, please.  Buddy will want to chase them and that would be too dangerous.  Other dogs are OK as long as they are bigger than Buddy, as he tends to chase ANY animal smaller than him (not just cats!)  Buddy should be around older kids because he tends to jump up and he could knock down little kids when he gets excited.  Despite being 6 years old, this guy has lots of youthful energy and he’ll be a wonderful walking/hiking companion.  While he loves playtime, he also loves to snuggle, so he’s the best of both worlds.  Buddy has a fear of cars driving past him, so please talk to Dakin’s adoption counselors about the best way to handle this issue.  Come meet Buddy at our Springfield Adoption Center, you won’t regret it!
