Behavior: Buckey is a super sweet, wiggly guy! He’s very happy to see everyone in the house and is content to lay on his dog bed during a quiet evening. He is a very good boy for baths, toe nail trims, fur trimming, ear cleaning, etc.
Activity level: Medium/high. Buckey must have a large fenced in yard where he can run for hours (he’s very good at entertaining himself with birds!) He would be a wonderful hunting partner, running partner or hiking partner. As long as he has ample exercise, he is a wonderful dog!!
Fence: A fence is a strongly recommended. He cannot be off leash without further training.
Medical history: Neutered, on HWP, microchipped, UTD on vaccinations. Happy and healthy! No current medical problems.
Comments: Buckey has come a long way in his time in foster. I’m sure he can do great things with further training with the right family. He would love to help you train for a race or join you on your favorite hiking trail. He rides great in the car, so travelling would be fine. He loves both men and women, so he’d be fine in any active household. He also really likes bananas!!
update 7/4/2019: Buckey doesn't need a ton of exercise. He isn't to be trusted off leash, but he is now content being inside. He'd be content being active or only having a walk or two per day. He also is better with my female dogs, still not good with my male dog though.
Foster Location: Indianapolis, IN

Typically, we are able to transport your adopted dog to within 2 hours of your home. *Dogs can be adopted outside the 1000 mile transport distance; however, adopters must be willing to either fly their adopted dog, drive to a location within the 1000 mile transport range, or make independent transport arrangements for their adopted dog. Transports to far West states, from Eastern states, may have additional restrictions.
