Buster Brown is a quiet, gentle boy who loves hanging out with his human friends, nudging them to get some scratches. Now in foster care, he's also getting along well with his foster mom's senior dogs, and he's happy to lounge with her two cats, sharing his bed with the big one. He also loves getting belly rubs from her teenage boy, listening to his commands and snoozing near him.

This sweet boy enjoys car rides and leash walks. He handles himself well on his leash, walking by his foster's side and listening to commands. He pays little attention to animals or people he sees, but does welcome folks who stop to pet him. Buster is on medication for an enlarged heart and fluid overload. He is house-trained, but the medical issues may cause leakage, so he wears a diaper. He's not very happy to see that his foster mom is leaving, but he settles down in his crate and is asleep when she returns home!

Buster will love a home with parents who are happy with a relaxed pup and will take him on lots of short walks and car rides. He also is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet this lovable boy!
