Meet loyal and adorable Buddy, an 8 year old, 20 lb Maltese who will steal your heart! Buddy’s lovable nature and cheerful charisma is unlike any other. He has a warm and open heart, and is the type of dog who immediately falls in love with his humans and wants to be everyone’s best friend. Day in and day out, Buddy will always be there by your side to keep you company. He’s a love with humans, and is also very easygoing with other dogs, and instantly found a spot on the sofa alongside his foster family’s little dogs.
On walks, Buddy shows his playful and adventurous side. He loves to explore his environment, sniff around, and run through the grass. Though he has a little extra weight on at the moment, he doesn’t let that slow him down.
After a long day, Buddy’s favorite thing to do is cuddle (he loves fuzzy blankets) and get endless belly rubs.
One of the most admirable features about Buddy is that he has a smile that can make the worst of days better. He’s always smiling, but especially when he sees his humans. Buddy is a total lovebug, always ready to shower you with love and kisses.
Please note that Buddy has hip dysplasia and arthritis in both of his hips. He also has mild luxating patellas (kneecaps) and toes that hyperextend slightly on his back feet. He gets around well and is on a joint supplement and anti-inflammatory, both of which have helped. He is also working on losing a little bit of weight, which will help as well.
