– THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT TERRA AT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –
Our sweet, large, anxious American Foxhound, Buddy, came to us after he was originally removed from a puppy mill in Washington, stayed at the Family Dogs New Home Shelter, and then lived in 2 other homes- all within the first 10 months of his life. He was 10 months old when we got him, and he turned 3 on April 22nd of this year.
We have done so much to support and rehabilitate this sweet boy.
When we got Buddy, we had no idea we were going to have a baby. Our baby is now a year old, and he and Buddy are great together until something happens to set Buddy off.
We have done training with him, we give him the best food, herbs, acupuncture, and tons of love, yet, he still has bouts of anxiety which sometimes lead to him racing around and accidentally tripping over the baby. He has never tried to hurt anyone on purpose, and has never bitten anyone even when he’s felt trapped and afraid.
To keep our baby safe, we are very sadly and regretfully needing to find Buddy a new home.
It is pretty clear to us what kind of home he would do well in. A peaceful home with one person or a couple with no kids or older kids, and definitely no cats. He does great with other gentle dogs.
A peaceful, generally quiet house that feels safe and comfortable, with a fenced in yard to run and play. He still has some puppy energy and loves to play with his toys when he feels safe.
One more thing about Buddy is that he is a counter surfer, and will eat anything even remotely edible, (including bananas, garlic, tomatoes, chocolate, bread, gum, pills, etc) so you will have to keep the kitchen/people food unavailable to him at all times.
