Meet Buddy!

Buddy is a loving 1-1/2 year old dog that was surrendered by his owner to the Silicon Valley Humane Society. He has an ulcer on his left eye that had not been treated. We have had him neutered and micro-chipped and he is up to date on all his shots. He is heart worm negative and in good health. He will be ready to be placed when he gets clearance from our veterinarian on his eye. There may be some scarring that might have been prevented if he had early treatment.

Buddy is leash trained, happy, appears to be house trained and probably was someone's house pet. He should make a wonderful pet. Buddy is being fostered in the Central Coast area of California. He weighs 18 pounds.

If you would like more information, contact Carole Ross. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Buddy has been Adopted!

Buddy and his new Mom

September 9th update from Buddy's Mom:

Buddy is the prince of the house...he insists upon it. He is one jealous guy and makes a funny noise when he doesn't want to do something or let me pay attention to the other dog or cat. That's OK. He hasn't marked in the house in a long time and only jumps on the furniture when he is very excited. It just makes me laugh the way he keeps his eye on me at all times. Out in the yard he'll be very busy following the other dog around and he keeps looking around to make sure where I am. If I make a move toward the door, he runs to me right away. At night he goes to his bed in my room and puts himeself to bed. If I don't come right away, he comes and finds me.

Here's a picture of Buddy and me.


June 27th update from Buddy's Mom:

Carole, today is Buddy's one year anniversary of him being with us. He is such a big part of the family that it seems like he has always been here. Buddy is such a joy -- his devotion is unwavering as is ours to him. He has turned out to be the perfect dog. He has such nice manners (except for a bit of jealousy which is amusing and kind of endearing) and he is a wonderful companion to us and our other dog, Briquette. His temperament suits us very well. I think I was so lucky to get him -- I always say that Buddy and I met on the internet. I just wanted to say "thank you" for taking care of him so that he could come to us. Carol
