And now a few words from me:
Hi! I’m Buddy, an energetic Dachshund mix. I’m shy at first and can be a little hesitant about being petted, but once I feel comfortable, I like to be around my human. I like short walks, love toys and enjoy wrestling with my foster friends. I have a pretty loud bark for someone my size and I like to use it when something strange is happening (vacuum, knock on the door, etc.).
And now a few words from my foster family:
Buddy is definitely full of energy! If he could bounce off of the walls, I think he just might try it! He is a bit nervous of hands above his head and will mouth your hand if he doesn’t want to be touched. He loves to run and play. He is learning commands and is housebreaking slowly, but he can be stubborn. He will definitely need an owner who is willing to work with him and keep him in line! He likes to have canine company to play and snuggle with, but could possibly do well alone. He is extremely curious (into everything!) and always wants to see what you are doing. With a little training, he will make a great companion.
