At A Glance
Bud arrived last week from South Dakota in time for the long holiday weekend. Many thanks to his guardian angels for getting him to the cities safely! He is absolutely beautiful and has a wonderful personality to match. Bud was liberated from spending his days locked in a barn, and was covered head-to-toe in wood ticks. Since his arrival to RAGOM, he has been brought up to date on vaccinations, had a bath and all the ticks are gone, microchipped and neutered. Bud is two years old, has a minor ear infection but otherwise is in great health. He has a stunning coat, beautiful white teeth and almost prances when he walks.
Bud came to RAGOM from a bad living situation, but he must have been loved by someone, because he is a confident, playful, loving, happy boy with a great temperament. Bud and my resident Mia play with toys, chase each other, wrestle in the yard, play bow, butts wiggling like crazy, and then they crash and take a nap together…..touching feet or heads or anything. Soooo cute! He has lots of puppy energy but is eager to please and listens very well. We were at the cabin this weekend and he watched Mia swim in the lake, but wouldn't even put his feet in the water. Mia splashed him a few times and after about 30 minutes, he finally wandered in and fished a bit. I don't think he has ever seen a lake before because he was very curious and careful.
He is potty trained, but marked a few times when he first arrived. Bud does not like to be crated, however is crated when home alone, and as long as he has a kong filled with treats, he does ok but is not happy about it. He sleeps in my bedroom, and would LOVE to sleep on my bed but he gets to sleep on a dog bed with Mia. :) Bud is carrying a toy in his mouth almost all the time. He rearranges the toys in the house, and loves to retrieve. He loves kids, and dogs and everyone he has met. This is one special boy, that will melt your heart!
