Buddy the dog is looking for a new lovely home in the Montréal area

Hi, I’m Buddy! I’m a dog with a lot of baggage, so I’m looking to settle down in a quiet, cozy home to spend the best retirement ever.

At first glance, I can be a little shy, but once I get comfortable with patient and loving humans, I can show you my sweet nature. I LOVE being around other dog friends and it allows me to bring out my personality and inner joy. I am looking for an experienced family with adults and no small animals.

At first in my foster home, I stayed in my room, as I didn’t feel comfortable exploring the rest of the house yet. This is a common phenomenon with some more sensitive dogs going through the shelter experience. With encouragement and treats, I was able to slowly explore the other rooms and even learn to walk outside! It is likely that I will need some time to adapt when I arrive in my new home, it is very important not to force things. It is very important to give me some time to get to know you and to find my own place. It seems that I didn’t have the chance to go out walking very often in my past life. Quietly, with patience and treats, I am able to improve a lot.

I dream of a gentle and patient family, a quiet living environment and endless nap opportunities. I am not a big fan of manipulations, but I would be happy to join you in your routine, for example, peaceful evenings in front of a movie and have a place on your sofa. The car is still something to work on. I’m still unsure about getting into a car. I just need to get used to it slowly. Recently, my foster family discovered that I like to get scratched on my belly – that’s a sign that I’m getting more and more comfortable.

I truly deserve to find my own perfect match, come give me a chance!
