    WANTED: Family who would like to spend as much time with me as possible!

    Hey I’m Buddy. I LOVE people. I follow them around wherever they go, I just want to be with them. I let my foster parents know when we’re separated that I’m lonely, but I’m learning that a little alone time isn’t so bad. I love my doggie bed and sleep quietly on it beside the human bed at night. During the day when I’m alone I sneak onto mom’s bed, it makes me feel a little better that she’s not home. I am very sweet and just want to be hugged and kissed all day long. I love going for walks and am eager to sniff everything. Car rides are a little worrisome for me but I’m learning that I won’t be dropped off and forgotten and I usually get ice cream or a Timbit :)
    My personality is really started to show. I am more of a goofball than they originally thought. I am starting to play more and enjoy wrestling with my foster parents. My energy level is considered medium, I will hang out with you and watch a movie, but I also want to go for a walk everyday. I love tummy rubs and my foster parents often find me sleeping belly up while they watch TV. My bones are my favorite things but I will give them up with a little persuasion.
    House training was a breeze. Mom says I am very smart and catch on quickly. She’s teaching me all sorts of commands including the basic ones and some more tricky ones like staying while she walks away from me. Even when I can’t see her I’ve learned to listen and wait for her call. Then I will join her and get lots of love :) it’s hard to wait but it’s always worth it.
    I don’t mind cats and will lay with them if they don’t mind me either. I LOVE kids and would like if I had a few to chase around. I do get quite excited when they run though and need one that understands that I need space too, so over 6 years old would be best. I play gently but tiny human fingers might think I’m too big for them. Because I love all people so much and don’t like to share their attention I need a home where I will be the only dog.
