Energy Level 2 - Likes to go for short walks but mostly is a lounger. Does not require much interactive play.
My name is Buddy! I’m a wonderful hound dog looking for a furever home in 2023. I'm guessed to be about 7-years old and weigh about 80lbs. Everyone who has met me falls in love, I am just that kind of guy! I get along great with my 3 foster siblings. I love to lounge around on my bed and will sometimes entertain myself with toys. I will let you know when I want to go out by either standing at the door or whining. I’m a true hound and love sniffing around my fenced in yard. I’m not that used to a leash but I’m working on it.
I want to find my own family to hang out with, could that be you? If so, apply now I won't be available for long.
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
