Male | 8 yrs | 23 lbs | Jack Russell/Beagle mix
Buddy is a sweet, adorable, fun-loving guy once he’s comfortable with you. He has made amazing progress in his structured kennel environment and responds well to training, exercise and positive reinforcement. He is adored by the kennel staff, however, he needs boundaries and ongoing training in order to help make better choices. Potential adopters would need to be aware of this and continue to work on his confidence, so that he can be the best he can be and overcome his fear of strangers. Buddy has a bite history and can be a bite risk without proper introductions.
His wonderful adopter has passed away, and he’s looking for his new forever home. He will make an excellent companion to another senior that has dog and/or Jack Russell experience!
Adoption Fee | $500
Adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescue, such as vetting, boarding, and transportation.
Prior to adoption, dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4Dx tested, and they receive any necessary treatment.
For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page.
Why We Love Fostering
There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.
*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
