Meet Buddy, a charming 12-year-old in search of his forever home. Despite his age, Buddy is an easygoing and delightful companion. He enjoys lounging on the sofa while watching TV and excels at hoovering up any dropped crumbs. Although his eyesight may not be perfect, he eagerly awaits walks and stays right by your side. Buddy’s ideal match is someone who appreciates the slower pace of life, as his legs aren’t as strong as they once were. He prefers a peaceful environment and would thrive as the only pet in the household, especially due to his canine dementia, which sometimes leads to night-time barking and confusion.
