From the Foster

Buddy is adjusting well. He has not had an accident in our home as of yet. We're working on talking (barking) less. This is improving.  He shows reaction to some dogs (TV and in-person) & delivery trucks especially while riding in the car. Buddy walks well. Buddy eats well and is extremely food driven. We have not found a favorite toy or game. He likes to walk and hang out.

Buddy is showing some signs of guarding. Mostly chew bones. We have not exposed him to children or other dogs for play dates as of yet.

I have had some trouble with chronic ear infections, but I am still adoptable! While the veterinarians at Secondhand Hounds have been treating my ear infections, they are stubborn and the next step is a consultation with a veterinary dermatologist to get to the bottom of my ear issues. During this time I am still able to meet with potential adopters and will be able to go home as soon as my ear infections are under control.
