Buddy offers up a large helping of fun and spunkiness in an eight-pound package! He is loving and sweet and quickly captures your heart. A curious little Yorkie, but he can be a handful on walks, so CHR requires that applicants have a dog-secure fenced yard. Buddy has a tiny bladder, so he needs to go out for a potty break every few hours, and will have accidents if he is not let out during the day. For this reason, he will need someone home during the day.
Buddy is a typical Yorkie who takes his job as a watchdog seriously (no need to get that new video doorbell—Buddy will announce all guests!). CHR is hoping to find him in a detached house setting because his alert barking may disrupt neighbors. Buddy loves treats so much that he will be a little protective if you try to take his bone away. He has bitten before when someone has attempted to take a treat away from him. But there’s an easy fix: just trade him for another treat he loves even more (right now it’s animal crackers!).
While he co-exists well with other dogs, Buddy’s eagerness to be the number one furbaby in the home sometimes gets him in trouble with other dogs. For that reason, we are asking for a home where he will be the only dog.
So, if you’re looking for a dog with a lot of character and a compact size, Buddy is your pup!
