Arrival Story:
Buddy would have been his breeders next show dog if it weren't for an overshot bite. He's sheer perfection in every other way including a spectacularly affectionate peronality. Although it was love at first sight we had two older dogs at the time and didn't know how all three would manage. At 7 months old Buddy was driven out to Michigan for placement in a home with an older Puli......the pairing didn't work and he returned to Massachusetts. Minutes before he was to leave for a home in Florida we went to see him ONE LAST TIME.....and took the two older dogs with us. The sniffing and tail wagging went so well that the rest is history. 2013 update - We lost our beloved 'Buddy' (Accordingly Wallbanger Buddy) to lymphoma and secondary complications on January 19, 2013. Never was a Puli more aptly named. We will cherish his lifetime of memories and miss our sweet boy forever and a day. All the usual adjectives apply in capital letters........he was LOYAL, DEVOTED, COURAGEOUS, ENDEARING, AFFECTIONATE, PLAYFUL, ATHLETIC, INQUISITIVE AND BREATHTAKINGLY HANDSOME. He brought us great joy with his Puli antics and silliness, his intelligence, competence, fearlessness and his ability to love us always unconditionally. Buddy spent many years as a therapy dog with the Companion Animal Program on Cape Cod, brightening the days of patients at nursing homes and bringing a smile to all those he visited. He enjoyed time at Camp Gone to the Dogs for many summers and got to hone his skills at agility, rally obedience, freestyle dancing and sheep herding. Whatever Buddy did he did with enormous enthusiasm and a big Puli smile. We are forever indebted to his breeder who deemed our household worthy of such a treasure. Buddy was a blessing in our lives and we only wish we could have had a few more years.

Buddy is a Canine Good Citizen, therapy dog and winner of the coveted Hot Dog Retrieve award! A herder by instinct, he rounds up people, other dogs and seagulls. Did I mention that Buddy's half brother was Best of Breed at Westminster 2004!
