Buddy is a great dog with a few little quirks that to me just makes him more unique. You see Buddy was found running the roads in our neighborhood. We brought him in off the street, he was chipped but after calling and leaving messages with his owners we realized quickly they weren't coming for him. We did a little research and found out he was picked up as a stray in September and taken to Nassau County AC and then adopted out at Mega in October of last year. His microchip was transferred to a new owner in January of this year who says they gave him to someone else, we called them and got no response at all. This poor dog has had 3 owners since October, 3 different homes in the last 4 months. He hasn't even been given time to adjust and feel at home before he is bounced off to someone new. It's no wonder he hasn't a clue where he belongs, no wonder he isn't sure how to act because he hasn't even been given a chance to learn the rules before he is given away or just let out to fend for himself.
He is neutered, 2 years old, and what a gorgeous boy. After spending a week with him we have realized he is extremely smart and a very fast learner. We believe he is a mix between border collie and cattledog, which is a working/herding breed who needs regular activity so they don't get bored and act out. He loves walks, loves car rides and really enjoys going and doing. He would make an amazing running partner. He knows basic commands (Sit, stay, shake, lay and backup) He needs an active family who can give him a lot of time and have patience with him and allow him time to settle in and show you what a good boy he can be. He gets along with other dogs but would do best with a large female who can keep him straight. He has been around cats at my house and has done ok with the cats who like dogs. He is great with kids of all ages and loves everyone he meets.
