My name is Buddie and I am 2½ years old. I am full of energy and need an active, experienced home. I am a big boy and am working on my leash manners, which are coming along nicely. I am friendly and loving much prefering a male figure in y life. I do get stressed easily and when I am stressed I will growl and may grab with my mouth. With me less touching is more appreciated unless I ask for it. This will change in time as I find my place in your family structure.
My ideal home is a disciplined environment that will give me rules, as this is something I have never had. I did challenge my previous owner because of the lack of boundaries. My new owner needs to be my boss at all times giving needed training and exercise to get over this. I would do great for someone looking to bikejor and I’d be a great addition to a dog sled team, as well. I love be outside and would best suited as an outdoor dog.
Thanks to my propensity to nip, I cannot go to a home with children. I am also not suitable for a home with cats, but I am good with female dogs of a similar size. I need to attend obedience classes with my adopter and learn lots of manners. Once I am settled in, I am a good boy.
I am not house trained. I am crate trained, but will bark loudly in it if I am bored. I tried out an apartment for 2 weeks, and unfortunately I do need a home with a yard, unless my owner is home almost all of the time to give me attention. Being cooped up isn’t my ideal situation. I am up to date on my vaccinations, and I‘m microchipped. I am not neutered, and will be adopted on a neuter contract, to be carried out once I’m settled.
