Meet Buddy! He is a two year old Labrador Retriever and Rottweiler mix. Buddy is a hefty boy and is very strong. He doesn't notice his own size much though and may try to crawl into your lap anytime you are sitting down. He may also look intimidating, but he is really just like a soft teddy bear on the inside. However, because of Buddy's size and the fact the he sometimes gets excited and forgets that he has so much power, it may be best if his family does not have small children who may be accidentally toppled over by his jovial but exuberant romping.
Buddy is a wiggle butt and makes the most comical display of enthusiasm whenever he sees a friend. It is as if he is so consumed with joy that he cannot control himself and his whole body wiggles with excitement at every encounter with a new or old friend. Buddy knows his name and answers nicely to it whenever he is called. He hasn't had anyone invest any time into his education though, and he would love to learn more doggy manners and tricks. Did you know that many local trainers offer discounts to RVSPCA alumni?
Buddy has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Come and visit him today at the Roanoke Valley SCPA!
The Roanoke Valley SPCA will be hosting a rabies vaccine clinic and an adoption/open house event on August 17th in recognition of International Homeless Animal Day.
