Hi, my name is Buddy, and I’m looking for a very special forever home. The truth is, I’m a little scared, and it takes me a while to trust because of my past. I was surrendered as a senior and needed to have both of my eyes surgically removed, so I’m adjusting to being blind. My foster mom gave me my very own special place where I could recover and feel safe. It’s by the window. Sometimes the sun shines down on me as I rest. I’m low maintenance, and independent, and I’m very used to being alone. I spend most of my days resting on my favorite bed or blanket. My favorite activities are foraging for food and snacks on my “snack blanket” because I don’t like to eat out of a bowl, and I absolutely love going for walks to explore the different smells and sounds. I just need you to be my eyes. Once I get used to my environment, I can navigate around myself. I have a little helmet to keep me from hurting my head, but I prefer not to wear it, I’m just learning to be more careful. I need a quiet home without kids. I don’t care much for animals either, but I’m fine as long as they leave me alone. I can be a little crotchety at first, but once I feel safe and learn to trust, I will come to you for pets and butt scratches. I’m looking for a very gentle, kind, loving and patient human companion to see me through the journey of my last few years. I know I’m older, but I’m a really sweet boy deserving of so much love and still have a little spunk left in me. Could you be the one to share this journey with?
From his foster: He’s a sweet boy once he feels safe. It will have to be a quiet home, without small kids. He just needs time to get to know his caretaker. To understand that he’s safe. He LOVES going for walks. So that’s a must. It’s his greatest joy. He can sniff and explore for as long as you’d let him. He gave me kisses on my face today. And kisses on my hand yesterday. He’s made so much progress. All I keep thinking is that besides his blindness, he’s just a regular good boy in need of stability and love. Simply.
Buddy needs a very tolerant and patient home that is willing to give him time and work on building and earning his trust. They must be knowledgeable with a special and kind heart.
