Boston of the Month

My name is Buddy.  I am 12 years old and weigh 30 pounds.  I need a new home because my Mom got sick and cannot take care of me any longer.  I am being fostered in Fairway, KS.

My name describes me perfectly; I am Buddy.  I am a licker, so you must be ready to have your face licked. A lot.  I am very gentle, unless I have a toy I like to shake as the terrier part of me really comes out.  Just try to take my toy, just try!  Here, I will offer it to you, now I will take it back and kill it!  I love toys that make a lot of noise, like squeakers and Babble Balls.  Babble Balls get me worked up, so you have to be careful and monitor me. I am kind of old, after all.  The thing I love more than my toys is to sleep next to my human.  I snore sometimes, but not too much. And I need a blanket or pillow to suck on when I nap and sleep.
It takes me about two weeks to learn my surroundings, and I can get around with no problem.  Just don’t move things on me.  I love to take a walk, but we have to go the same route every time, so I can keep my bearings.  No jogging for me, though. Steps are hard on me, and while I can figure out 2 or 3, the big ones scare me.  I might get up, but keep me safe and have gates for me so I don’t do it.  I might fall.
I only have the one eye, and do not see very well, but I do use it.  Make sure there are no sticks or pointy things for me to run into at my eye level.  I need all the help I can get.

Eligible for the Golden Paws Program – $50 off the adoption fee.
