Hello there, I’m Buddy! My name suits me very well because I am truly everyone's buddy. I may be a bit timid at first if I have never met you but approach me slowly and I bet you will have my heart within a couple of minutes! I love to give hugs and to rest my whole upper body on you for a snuggle. But don't worry, I never jump and when you tell me to stop doing something you don't like, I usually listen.

I get along great with other dogs and I am so good with children, even the young ones! I may weigh a bit over 70lbs, but I am a gentle giant with lots of love to give.

I am housebroken, but you do have to learn my signs that I need to go out. Oh, and I love to walk on a leash - I rarely pull! I am still learning to like my crate, but I do quiet down after a while and settle in. I am heartworm positive and have just started treatment. But don't let that stop you from adopting me into your home. The rescue will support you and me in this process!

So, what do you say? Ready to meet your new buddy?

Note from MLRR: Buddy has just begun treatment for Heartworm (don’t worry – it’s not contagious!) MLRR will continue to pay for his HW treatment after adoption, but he will need to maintain a low activity lifestyle during treatment.
