Peg Leg (nicknamed "Buddy by his fosters) is a very sweet and social dog whose favorite activities include hanging out with his people, romping around the backyard, and finding the perfect spot to relax and chew his favorite bone.

While he still has some playful puppy energy, Buddy is also well-mannered. He is house-trained and getting more comfortable in his crate. He rests there while his fosters are away and sleeps there without a peep through the night.

He responds very well to verbal corrections and quickly adjusted to the schedule and routines of his foster home. Buddy enjoys learning and would like to continue learning and experiencing new things with his forever family!

Before coming to APA!, Buddy suffered a serious injury to his hind leg. He underwent a successful leg amputation and is fully recovered. Having only three legs has not fazed him. Buddy is able to walk, run, play, and do pretty much anything he could on four legs. His foster parents are very proud of him!

Buddy has been great with other dogs and would do well in a home with another playful pup or as your one and only. He does want to chase his fosters' cat, so they recommend he go to a cat-free home. Given his kind and playful disposition, they think Buddy will do well in many home environments.
