Arrival Story:
Buddy was originally raised as a pup to be a show dog. His owner became ill and was no longer able to work with him. Years later his owner passed away and Buddy was left alone in the house and very scared. He was defensive of his home so the person that would stop by the house to care for him had to lure him in and out with treats and food. Because that living situation was unrealistic, Buddy was sent to live with a women who loved him and loved to care for him, but worked 12+ hours a day and that did not work so well for Buddy. Although he was 5 years old he suffered from seperation anexity, he was very hyper and needed a lot of excercise, and had a thing for "counter surfing" and stealing food when mom wasnt home. So his previous mommy went on a search to find him a good new home and he now resides with us. He has a mom, dad, and two human sister (one being me) and he has a 91 year old grandmother....his pet family includes a 15 year old female lab, two rabbits, two chinchillas, two guinea pigs and a rat!

my sister is a dog groomer! you would think I wouldnt mind her taking me to work to wash me but I am sooooo bad for her. I am a huge baby, I refuse to stand in the tub even to get rinsed and i cry and brak like a baby if you try to put me in a crate!
