Buddy Ruff – ADOPTED!!

Posted Dec 4, 2014 at 2:14 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!! Buddy Ruff had a “ruff” start in life.  He lived way out in the country as an outside dog.  His owner passed away and he was left to fend for himself.  Some kind-hearted, concerned neighbors would give him table scraps every day to make sure he was fed.  He would not stay at the neighbor’s house, he would always go back to his master’s home and sit on the porch, as if waiting for him to come home.  Our foster dad in Cape Girardeau heard of his plight and drove out to fetch him and bring him home.  This is a really, really nice dog. He is super sweet, very playful, and has mixed in with the dogs in his foster home from the very start.  He is obedient and loyal, and his little natural bob tail wags all the time!  Buddy seems very happy to be indoors where it’s warm, and where there is plenty of food.  Buddy Ruff is a bit timid with new people, but warms up very quickly.  We have not tested him with cats or small children yet.  Buddy seems to be very smart, and learned the doggie door right away.  Buddy gets really excited about retrieving a tennis ball, and he will place it back in your hand to throw again!  His favorite treat is wintergreen lifesavers.  (go figure!)  He is housebroken with a doggie door, and loves to be outside.  A fenced-in backyard would be a big hit in his new home.  We think Buddy is about 1 to 2 years old, and weighs about 20 pounds.  He is obviously a mix, but we couldn’t leave this sweet soul to fend for himself, especially with winter closing in quickly.  Buddy prefers to not sleep in a bed, but in a dog bed on the floor.  He walks well on a leash, and is eager to please.  All this devoted little guy needs is someone to love him back.  If you would like to give Buddy a home, (and maybe a wintergreen lifesaver?) please fill out an application?  For photos of this cute guy in his foster home, click here:
