Let's get this baby adopted!

"Meet Buddy! Buddy is a 7-month old border collie mix who weighs about 40 pounds. He was surrendered to a local shelter because his owner could no longer take care of him. Now, we're on the hunt for Buddy's perfect family!

Buddy can be a bit shy at first, especially towards men, but he has warmed up to everyone he's met in no time at all. Buddy is a puppy through-and-through and definitely needs a home where he can get all his energy out. For that reason, he will require a fenced-in yard to run around in. Border collies are smart, and Buddy is no exception, so he wants someone who is going to interact with him and make sure his brain is stimulated throughout the day. He loves playing with his rope toys and chasing tennis balls, but he's not a chewer. (That's good news for your couch!) Buddy has some thunder and loud noise anxiety, so he requires lots of cuddles and snacks during storms -- he hopes you don't mind too much! Even though he's an energetic guy, he's pretty calm once he's inside and likes to cuddle up with you.

Buddy loves dogs, but may need a slow introduction because he is a bit nervous at first. We believe he wasn't socialized very well, so a lot of the world scares him, but he's getting more and more used to it every day in his foster home. Now, he and his doggy brother are BFFs, so we think Buddy should be in a home with another dog who can show him that he doesn't have to be afraid of everything!"

Let’s give these shelters some love during this time! A lot of them are still open so if you’re interested, please give them a call or shoot them an email to schedule a private adoption appointment!
