Buddy, 7, is a neutered male, black and brown, Australian shepherd mix. This affectionate dog has a name that suits him well. A little aloof at first meeting, he warms up quickly once he gets to know you and becomes very bonded to his people. Buddy has lived with older children and done well. He has also lived with other dogs, but we think he’d enjoy life best as an only dog. Buddy loves to have his butt scratched, seeming to smile in delight. Buddy loves to play fetch with anything that’s available, whether it is a ball or a stick. He is house-trained and may do well being crate-trained to help him with his adjustment into his new home.
Buddy (#25342388) can be found in kennel 320 at the Idaho Humane Society at 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. The shelter is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
