Pipe down pups! What’s the excitement? Goodness these young’uns rattle my nerves!
Buddy lives in Cookeville, TN and is being adopted out though A.A.R.F. After 8 years of taking care of my special human in her quiet apartment who would have expected a gentledog such as me to wind up in a foster home with a bunch of young dogs or those infernal cats. When I was young I learned to respect my elders and not be running around jumping on furniture and house guests and all that. I’m not complaining about my hosts, they’re real nice people and talk soft and call me a good boy and all, even have some real tasty vittles and treats. But with all the wrestling and running and toy squeaking from these whippersnappers a fella can’t even get a good nap anymore.
What I’d like most is a nice retirement home with a human or two, a couple of leisurely walks every day, a good brush down to keep my coat looking handsome and a soft bed to sleep on. I wouldn’t mind a bit to spend my twilight years getting petted and watching favorite movies and tv shows. I know how to mind my manners in the house and do my business outdoors where it belongs. It doesn’t bother me to sit in a crate for a spell, but it’s really not necessary. I manage just fine in the house if you need to go to work or run some errands or whatnot. I like car rides every now and then too if you’d like to take me along, but I haven’t met many strangers or other critters, so I tend to be a little shy when they’re around. I don’t bark much, only when I’ve got something important to tell you. I do get real excited when I see you’ve put your shoes on because I’m hoping it means we’ll be going out for a little fresh air.
(P.S. Buddy is fostered in Cookeville, TN out-of-state adoptions are possible)
