Dog Story: Hello folks, my name is Buck! Like my deer namesake I’m a long-legged fleet-footed guy who can run really fast, but don’t worry, no antlers here. I hadn’t ever been in a house before so I was a bit like a panicked deer at first, but learning to be a family pet has been the best experience. I’ve also discovered the holy grail of Britt-dom critters that live in the big oak tree in the backyard, and that’s mostly the time I don’t listen and come back to foster mom, because hello, squirrels!! I love to run and play with my Brittany foster sister, and she has taught me a whole lot about the rules watching her to learn what to do. I’m full of energy to explore and have so many fantastic Brittany traits. Foster mom says I’ve got great potential and very eager to please. I’m housetrained, crate-trained and know kennel, eat meals in my crate and rest in my safe cozy den with a chew bone when the family is out. I mostly walk nicely on my leash and harness. I know some commands like sit and down, and will do my stay while mom walks into the next room until she calls me for a cookie. I don’t bark much unless I need to let folks know something’s going on. I get along really well playing and sleeping with my Britt sister and know now that she’s the dog boss around here, but since I haven’t had much experience in the big world meeting new dogs can be scary, so I need help with introductions to learn that new buddies are ok. I haven’t been around little kids much and I’m pretty bouncy, so older children would be better for me. Sure I’ve still got a few things to work on a bit of a shoe fetish (I take shoes very gently out of the closet and carry them to my bed, but haven’t chewed them up.) Someone left a bag of hot dog buns on the counter, so I had to help myself to a snack. And there was a plate of salad on the coffee table, but a guy needs his healthy vegetables, and everyone’s always pestering kids to eat their veggies right?! If you might be looking for a handsome high-energy omnivore to cuddle and keep pesky squirrels away at your place, let the ABR folks know and get in touch with me! Buck is a darling 6 year old Britt weighing in at 42 pounds. He was an owner surrender from a family who had young children and didn’t have the time or experience to handle an active hunting breed, so a neighbor took Buck in and contacted ABR. Buck needs lots of exercise and will do well with a fenced yard, daily walks and plenty of attention. He has adjusted beautifully bonding with his Brittany foster sister, but since he was kept as an outdoor dog without much socialization in his previous life, he is guarded meeting new dogs and needs gradual positive introductions as he acclimates with new canine friends. Buck is neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm/fecal negative, on heartworm/flea-tick preventative, and microchipped. Now he’s looking for a loving forever home to rest his head and chase squirrels, so please submit the adoption application and mention Buck-5963 in Louisiana, then contact his foster family.
