    I’m Bud, a young, large, handsome bundle of joy and I can’t wait to meet you.

    I like people, I’m excited when my foster mom takes me next door daily to say hi to the contractors working there so I can cash in on a few extra pets. I was picked on by a pack of dogs in the past, because of that I need proper introduction when meeting new dogs and then I’m alright. My foster mom’s dogs and I are good buddies and have a lot fun together. I even like the cat too. he’s very chill. I used to stay in my very own space secured by a baby gate when I first arrived in my foster home. I was a bit anxious then, being in a new surrounding, but now I roam freely around the house napping on whatever dog bed isn’t being used. I’m also learning that car rides aren’t that scary because they might mean a fun trip to the park.

    I can be silly, running around the big back yard tossing this new thing in the air, called a squeaky toy, and chasing it. I love going for walks and my foster mom says I walk better on leash than her own dogs! I’m totally house trained and have quickly learned basic commands, yay for me! I don’t live with children in my foster home, but I like them when I meet them. Because of my size, I will probably do best with older children and a family who likes outdoor activities as much as I do. I’ll be your loyal companion furever.
