Please welcome Buddy to the RAGOM family! Buddy is a one year old, neutered, 75#, up-to-date, very tall and very handsome Doodle. Due to work schedules, Buddy’s owners didn’t have time to exercise and train an active one year old Doodle. They made the difficult decision to surrender Buddy to RAGOM.
We’d like to give a huge thank you to Buddy’s temporary foster mom, Erin, for letting Buddy hang out at her house for a couple days. Another thank you goes to Rex 15-054’s foster mom for letting Buddy come over for a play date. Buddy told us he had lots of fun at both places.
Buddy is a great guy. He’s 100% housebroken and is crate trained. He sleeps in a crate in our room and is crated while we are at work. He whined for about 15 minutes his first night with us but now settles in without a peep.
Buddy has the typical energy of a healthy active one year old pup. Our resident dog, Josie, is a high energy dog so there are lots of walks and playtime at our house. Buddy and Josie love to wrestle with each other. We think Buddy would really enjoy having another playful dog in his family. If Buddy is the only dog in his family, he would benefit from trips to the dog park or time at doggy daycare.
Buddy loves to play with his tennis ball. In the house he entertains himself by tossing his ball in the air and then pouncing on it. Outside we can throw the ball the length of our yard and he returns it to our feet for another toss.
Buddy came to us with some bad puppy habits that are already getting much better. Buddy was mouthy when excited. We just said a loud “OUCH” and walked away when he mouthed us. He quickly caught on that mouthing doesn’t get him the response he was looking for. Buddy also liked to excitedly grab his leash on walks. Now that Buddy is getting multiple walks a day he no longer feels the need to grab the leash.
Due to his size and energy, Buddy would do best in a home without small children. We think Buddy would be fine in a home with cats. Buddy met Erin’s two cats while at her house. Buddy was interested in the cats in a friendly way, but once batted by one of the cats he lost interest.
