Arrival Story:
We had lost our previous dog to liver disease and we were all waiting until we felt that it was time to adopt again. Then this smiling face appeared on the local animal shelter website and we were hooked. We called and he had already been adopted! Then, looking at the website later in the day, it showed him as still available. Turns out that the person that adopted him brought him back because he became vet vicious (they probably tried to cut his toenails) and she couldn't handle it. Her loss was definitely our gain. When we got him he weighed TWICE as much as he was supposed to, according to our vet. He's now a svelt 32 pounds.

Buddy likes nothing more than when his people and cats are all in one place. The Sheltie in him likes to herd us all together and when we are all in the same room he definitely relaxes. Then at times, the beagle in him takes over and he tracks us all and chases the cats. He also thinks that he is the traffic cop and when the cats are chasing each other, he needs to get right in the middle of it and stop all that nonsense. He's also a very jealous dog and if there is a cat in our laps, he has to try to get between the cat and us, so he'll keep inching his nose in between until he either gets his way and the cat leaves or the cat bops him on the nose. We especially love Buddy's sweet smile!
