Buddy is a 4-year-old border collie available for adoption through the St. Louis Senior Dog Project.
Buddy is a very active dog with strong herding instincts, at his former home this pooch was herding chickens and we can just say that there was no happy ending for the chickens!
His former family was not able to handle all the instincts that are natural to a border collie and this in turn became a dangerous situation for Buddy. At his former place he tried to "herd" a passing car resulting in a serious injury that made him loose his back right leg. This injury has not slowed Buddy down and he continues to be an active dog.
Buddy is an energetic dog with tons of love to give, he is a very sweet dog that will do great in a family that understands the border collie breed. He would do best in a home with a fenced in yard and a very active family that would enjoy walking and running with him as well as enjoy having Buddy act on his excellent herding instincts in a structured environment.
If you would like to give this pooch a second chance to a happy ending (he promises he is done with chickens!) stop by the Kirkwood Petco this weekend from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to meet him and other adoptable dogs. Or check out our website here.
Thank you to St. Louis Senior Dog Project for introducing us to Buddy.
