Hello hello!! My name is Buoy and I am the beacon in the water that will help guide my forever family to me. At about 1.5 years old, I am silly boy with puppy like energy. I am a bit clumsy, but that is because I am a tripod (or tri-pawd as we say in the rescue world). I am originally from the south and  had a rough time starting out in this life, so I unfortunately had to have a back leg amputated. Even though I still am a bit wobbly, I have exuberance and confidence to keep going and so it doesn’t really really seem to bother me much. I am also a super resilient pup, so though I may be just a tad bit shy when meeting new people, I open up quickly with a treat or toss of a toy, and would do great in a home with kiddos over 12. I am quick learner and love my treats, which is super helpful when it comes to my training. Right now, I know some of the basics and are familiar with crate training, but could still use some of the basics. I enjoy playing with my dog pals my size who can handle my bouncy playstyle, and do tend to get overwhelmed in big groups of pups, so dog parks are not my thing. I would be happy to have a confident lady friend though who can still keep up with my play, but also help me learn when to take breaks. I have lived with 2 kitties before in the past, so a cat who is dog savvy would be find in my home. To get my energy out,  I enjoy playing fetch and might be up for a short walk walk around the block, but I am definitely not what you would consider an avid hiker or anything like that since it can be a bit challenging for me to keep up. It would also be helpful for my future family to have a house like set up just because stairs can be difficult and it would nice to have direct access to the outside. I have lived in the city before and can still get a little overwhelmed by super busy areas such as downtown, so a quieter neighborhood would be best. Silly and sweet, I am a special pup ready to play with my new family today. Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.
