About Buddy

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

  • Fostering opens you up to helping so many incredible animals. The dogs we have fostered all had different personalities, needs and quirks. We remember them all fondly. We love fostering because it is more flexible than most people would imagine. We can decide when to take a dog (so family vacations are easy to plan), what size (under 70lbs for us) and PAN is amazing at matching us with dogs that fit our needs.

*** 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. ***
