Forever Home Wanted

Buddy
 

buddy1.jpg

I am looking for Buddys Forever home .

Buddy was originally rescued from a yard when he was 6/7 weeks old taken away from his mother too soon.

He was so poorly and they couldn’t leave him in that condition.

They nursed him back to health and when he was 8 months old they found him a loving home.

Unfortunately after 7 months the owners due to personal reasons couldn’t commit to owning a dog, and offered Buddy back to them or they would sell him on.

Of course they took him back but was never in the position to own two dogs.

They have tried their very best to maintain two dogs but it’s difficult.

He is 3 years old, and a real sweetheart. He loves nothing more than cuddling up and going for walks. He does always get a case of the zoomies when first let off the lead but has excellent recall and comes back straight away.

Buddy is a foodie. He eats from a bowl that prevents him from woofing his food down in one go and is extremely partial to a carrot.

As with most cocker spaniels, he has a sensitive stomach and will have loose stools if eating food he isn’t familiar with.

Buddy needs grooming regularly and has white hair that does show up on clothes after a cuddle, however if he is regularly groomed it isn’t too bad.

Fully house trained and neutered. He does pull slightly on the lead He is a quick learner and wants to please , with the right training he will be fine.

He lives with another dog and grown up with children.
