From the Puppy Raiser…

Buddy’s name is perfect because he loves everyone and wants everyone to be his friend. He was raised during COVID which made teaching house manners quicker but socializing him was challenging. I was lucky enough to live within walking distance of a park trail which gave us lots of opportunities to see people, dogs, bike riders, skateboards, kids, wildlife, etc. at a safe distance but close enough to learn to be polite and calm near them. I often referred to him as Buddy the Elf because his personality matches closely to the elf in the holiday movie, Elf. He wants to be everyone’s friend and can make meeting someone new fun but can take his work seriously too. I want to wish the best of luck with Buddy. I am so happy you and he are close buddies as much as a close working team. ~ Jeanyne Gembarski, Puppy Raiser
