Buddy Boy is an absolute treasure! If a low maintenance and leisurely companion is what you are looking for to fit your lifestyle, then he is your boy. He is so sweet, super fun, and very easy going. Buddy Boy likes lounging on the couch, cuddling, belly rubs, and back scratches. He also really enjoys strolls around the neighborhood, sniffing around the backyard, laying in the sun, and playing in the garden hose. He is the perfect walking partner and enjoys a longer stroll but still appreciates a quick trip around the block. Additionally, he loves to run around, playing with his squeaky ball. He is so much fun to have around!

Buddy Boy has excellent manners and knows how to sit, stay, come here, lie down, back up, and stop. He is one hundred percent housebroken and will let you know when he has to go out. No potty training or accidents with this well-mannered boy! Buddy Boy is a total gentleman on a leash and is well behaved on walks. He loves treats like jerky and carrots but does not beg and stays out of the kitchen. Also, Buddy Boy is extremely gentle when taking treats from people.

Buddy Boy is very friendly and likes adults and older teenagers (especially girls). Whether you are gone for a few minutes or a few hours, he will always greet you with a wiggly butt and waggly tail. When he is left alone, Buddy Boy enjoys a good nap, but no crate is required for this guy because he is the best boy! Buddy Boy is an absolute treasure to have around and will absolutely light up your life!
Come meet your new best friend
