Buck is in search of love with everything he does. He likes to jump into the arms of adults, steal kisses from children, and plays affectionately with other dogs.
Buck likes to be near humans most of the time, although he does go lie by himself on the couch during quiet times. He needs a bit of manners training; jumping and basic commands, and will need someone that will work on him with chewing items that are not his toys.
Buck's specialty is giving hugs and kisses, his signature snoring, and playing well with others.
Buck is a hurricane of kisses. With smaller children (toddler age), he can be a bit strong and persistent and they don't know how to control him or push him away effectively. Other than just being motivated to show his love, we have seen no signs of aggression or anything that would worry us with children.
Per Buck's foster pawrents…
I believe Buck would do well in a home with lots of activity. Being a high-energy dog, he needs lots of attention, snuggles and possibly even other dogs to tire him out!
His family will need to be dedicated to teaching him some basic manners and stay consistent with training him. Once he is trained and settled into a new home with a routine and house rules, he'll be a five-star companion. We really love Buck!
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. After adoption, they are eligible for one month of free pet insurance.

Why We Love Fostering
I love fostering because it's a great feeling knowing that I am helping dogs find their forever homes. Knowing that they are coming from shelters where they may never be seen, and helping them get adjusted to a home in Canada is an amazing feeling. Since I travel a lot, fostering allows me to get my doggie cuddles and nature hikes without the stress of owning one.
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.
