Buddy is a beautiful tri color Collie who gets along with everybody he meets. He is a rough factored smooth Collie [what's this?] with a short, low maintenance, but thick coat. He had been kenneled outside his entire life before coming to Almost Home and was very underweight but now weighs in at 55 lbs and is filling out nicely. He will be 2 this coming May. Buddy lives with a family of teenagers and an energetic Golden Retriever and gets along great with all of them! He has also been around small children and seems to love kids. He is patient and calm. He has never been aggressive towards any person or animal He has come a long way since becoming an inside dog and being part of a family. He walks well on a loose leash with a Gentle Leader collar. He knows sit, down, leave it, drop it. He learns quickly and responds to gentle corrections very well. He does very well in a crate. He is a quiet and clean boy. Buddy is a medium energy dog. He loves to play with other dogs and is still learning how to play with people. He will play gentle tug-o-war with you with a soft toy, but has yet to understand the concept of fetch! He will however bring you your slippers or shoes when he thinks you need to put them on! He never chews on them, just wants you to have them! He is not a chewer! He is very affectionate and gives you nibble kisses. He loves to be petted and when you are done, will walk away and lay down. He is not overly needy. He can be vocal when he hears something but his fosters say he is generally a quiet dog. He is dignified and elegant when he prances around and just a beautiful boy. Buddy does not like stairs and while he will easily go up a short flight of 4 or 5 steps, he will not attempt a full flight. He does not like to ride in a car. He had a very rough start in his young life and these are understandable. Buddy was born with some eye defects. His entropion condition has been surgically corrected thanks to Almost Home but he has very small eyes and they are deep set. He can see much better after the surgery! He does not seem to be greatly affected by his diminished eyesight and it does not slow him down. Buddy is a majestic, happy, loving dog. He is going to make a wonderful pet for his forever family and would do great in almost any home. He would love an active family with kids. This boy has so much love to give in return! The adoption contribution for Buddy is $300.00. Please contact Daryl at email@example.com for more information about Buddy or any of our other adoptable dogs.
