Buddy is a very affectionate Staffy. He bonded with his foster carers very quickly and he is most happy when he is with his human companions. He likes being inside when you’re watching TV and will sit on your lap if you let him on the couch.

Buddy is good with other dogs, he lived with a female dog at his original home and is currently sharing our home with a female puppy and they get along well. We take Buddy to the dog park often and there are no issues with socialising with other animals. He was socialised with cats when he was younger. There have been no signs of aggression over food.

Buddy’s previous owner says he is good with kids. We have not had any children in our home; however, he lived with three kids before, but like with any animal, should not be left unsupervised around very young children.

Buddy has been left unsupervised in his foster carer’s backyard during the day. Although he has had another animal to keep him company, Buddy has not attempted to escape. He has started to dig a hole at a section of the fence, which was covered by a brick and he has not attempted to dig further. A home with a six-foot fence is preferable.

Like all dogs, Buddy loves a walk. For the most part he is good on a lead but has pulled on occasion when around other dogs. Buddy will require further lead training. He has been trained to sit and he comes when you call his name.

Buddy is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, vet checked, flea and tick treated. Buddy is in foster care and is now ready for adoption. Please call 0409 184 685 between 10am-4pm Monday-Friday and 9am-4pm Saturday/Sunday to arrange a viewing.

To adopt you will need photo ID, proof of residence, as in a current rates notice or a rental agreement showing approval to have animals, as well as vaccination and desexing records for any current pets you may already own.
