Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Adoption Fee: $400.00
Buddy is a handsome American staffy X sharpei X Newfoundland mixture and sits around 32kg in size at 1 years old.
Buddy is shy in nature and takes a little while to meet new people with confidence but he is getting a bit better every day with more time settling into foster care and being exposed to the open wide world. He becomes very loyal to his favourite humans and is looking for someone committed to put some time into getting to know him.
He will need a patient playmate, and has become attached to a four year old male dog in his foster home who teaches him confidence. He has been introduced to the cat, small dogs and other big dogs in his foster home, but care always needs to be taken because Buddy gets very excited and forgets to listen, like when he goes for a walk off leash.
Buddy does need continued training to learn basic commands, including loose leash walking which has all been started in foster care. He has been around children from a young age but because he is nervous he is best suited to a home with no kids or kids over the age of 12 years old that are confident with dogs. Buddy is toilet and crate trained, and hasn’t shown any issues with wanting to escape the existing fencing in his foster home. But we would recommend fencing of at least 5ft and over.
Buddy is looking for a home where he is included in the family and allowed to sleep inside especially at night.
He is located in foster care in the Newcastle area and is available for adoption in the NSW and ACT areas ONLY.
His adoption fee is $400 and he is ready to go now. R251000090
