|Personality:|| High Energy, Somewhat Dominant |
|Health:|| Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected | buddy is a 5 year old pit bull/French bull dog mix. I have had for 4 years and adopted him at 1 year old from a shelter. I adopted him to be my emotional support animal and he has done wonders for me. it breaks my heart to find myself in the situation of needing to rehome him. I have recently left a neglectful/abusive relationship and have tried for the last 2 months to make my living situation work out with my dog, but it is not working to buddy's advantage. I am renting a room and working full time, and now attending school part time. I do not have the time or space to commit to him like he needs. my ex takes him for part of the time, but ... (Read More)his patience me is growing thin. it is only a matter time before he wont keep buddy at all for me. buddy sits in my room 9+ hours a day while I am gone. although I do come home on my lunch break to give him a potty, its not enough. he needs someone who can be there for him. he is the most loving and sweet dog. according to his paperwork from the shelter I adopted him from, he was tied up outside for most of his first year of life. he was sun burnt when I got him. the only commands he knew were 'sit down' and 'shut up'. he now knows many tricks and commands and loves to learn. I think he was picked on by kids, as he is not good with small children, so I recommend no kids under 12, older is even better. he loves walks, runs and bike rides and of course snacks. he does have food allergies that I have narrowed down. NO chicken, grains, or potato/sweet potato. he gets yeast infections otherwise.Ive found his tummy is sensitive to duck and lamb. I'm currently feeding him a brand called signature that is fish, grain free and potato free and he is doing wonderful on it. he also has seasonal allergies and is on Claritin during the allergy season. due to being mixed with French bull dog, he also occasionally has back problems. the vet narrowed it down to being a slipped disc. he has had 2 back flares in the 4 years ive had him. it is best to avoid excessive jumping and other activities that may tweak his back, which is sometimes hard to avoid with his energy level. he is ball obsessed, but no aggressive about It. he does well with most dogs, but seems to not know exactly how to socialize with other dogs, but puts in a good effort. I feel he was possibly taken from his mom too soon and then neglected at his first home. he needs a family who is willing to take on the financial responsibility of his health and willing to commit time to his needs of exercise and lack of social interaction. a family with other dogs and a yard to play in would most likely be a major benefit to him. he is an amazing dog, an amazing companion, fun to be with and fun to watch. he is absolutely worth all of the effort he will need from you. he will come with any food that is left and all of his supplies. he has multiple beds, toys, leashes/collars and harnesses, food bowls, back packs, allergy supplies, crate (which he is not fully crate trained), food storage container, sweaters, and other items. please give me text or email if you interested or have questions. adoption fee is negoiable, finding him a good proper home is my priority, but it needs to happen as soon as possible.
