Dog Story: Hi everybody my name is Buck, I’ve had a tough go of it lately. I lived on a boat for most of my life then ended up in a shelter when my family’s situation changed. After a little while at the shelter I was adopted and got to go to a house with a real family. I like kids a lot and got to sleep with one of them at night. The kids would forget to close the door and I would go exploring. The family was concerned I was going to get hit as they lived on a busy road, so back to the shelter I went. ABR rescued me from the shelter and I went to my foster home to live with two other boy dogs. I love hanging out with my family, treats, romping in the yard, rides in the car, treats, going for walks, belly rubs, and treats. Did I mention that I will learn almost anything for treats!! I try very hard to be a good boy. I don’t have any problems like resource guarding, food aggression, or chewing on anything but a toy or bone. Every person I meet is a new friend and I get all wiggly when I hear kids playing. The only thing I really don’t like are cats, so I definitely need a home with no kitties. Foster Dad: Buck has been with us for less than a week and has already made amazing progress. He seems to dislike other male dogs when they first meet but after only two days he earned free run of the house. He now enjoys the company of our two boys and has started to initiate play with them. He had several accidents inside over the first day and a half but has been reliably clean ever since. When he arrived, his house manners left a lot to be desired. He has already learned that counters are not for surfing, to stay in his place while the dog food is put into bowls, and allow us to go out the door without trying to sneak out. When he sees that his bowl of food is on the way he does a cute little dance that always cracks me up. Buck has a strong desire to please his people and a willingness to learn that makes him a joy to work with.
