Bud is a true Albertan; he does not mind snow or cold weather. His favourite place is at the window watching all the neighbourhood action. He loves to run and go for walks, but he needs some redirection as he gets too excited. He likes to ride in the car and usually sits on the console. He likes to eat and drink but he never begs for food. He is not a cuddly dog but will sit and lie down beside you. He likes to be pet and being brushed.

Bud is a great companion. He gets very attached to one person, and he is very protective. He sleeps well on his bed through the night but does not like crate, he cries the whole time. He is house and potty trained.

Bud(Little) does have an issue with touch around his face and does not like to receive kisses from his humans.

He can be a bit reactive in stressful in high energy situations, so he needs a calm environment to thrive in. He is friendly to my one dog, but aggressive to the other one so he would probably do best as the only animal in his household. He does not like cats and rarely barks. He has some nippy tendencies so no small children. We’ve been doing constant training and redirection and he is getting better. I believe Bud will be an awesome companion if you just give him time, patience and lots of love.

Adoption costs: $650.00
