Hi everyone. I'm Buck, and I want to be your new BFF! I ‘m a medium-energy young guy who loves everyone I meet, people and dogs alike. And don't even get me started on kids-I absolutely adore them. But sometimes I jump up to kiss them and need some training to polish my manners. I hope you'll be interested in doing that with me, as I'm a fast learner and will work hard to show you what a good boy I am. Long walks and playing in the yard or with my Kong are my favorite activities, and it would be great to share the fun with another friendly pooch, if you have one. I am potty-trained, but being in a crate really scares me, and I'll hurt myself trying to escape. So I need a person/family that won't crate me. My foster family lets me rest in a spare bedroom while they are gone during the day, and I happily nap or play with my toys. Do I sound like the dog for you? Then please fill out an adoption application ASAP because I just know we're meant for each other!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
