His owner is a single mother with two young children, and is finding it difficult to 'care for his needs like he deserves.' Name: Buddy Age: 1 Breed: Yellow English Lab Sex: Male (neutered) Location: Bexar County, TX Vet Info: Buddy is neutered. Current on vaccinations (per owner). Buddy has not had a heartworm test. Buddy weighs about 70 pounds. Dog Info: Buddy's owner has had him for about one year. She originally purchased him from a first-time breeder. Buddy is an indoor dog who is crated. He is housebroken and leash trained, and knows the commands, Sit, Stay, and No. Buddy's owner also writes that he does not bark a lot. Buddy is a friendly fellow, and his owner tells us he is good with people of all ages, male and female dogs, and cats. He currently lives with two cats, and his owner gave us more details: '1 is nice and they play well the other cat does not like dogs and Buddy stays away from that one.' Buddy is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never shown aggression. Buddy's owner tells us he's a super sweet fellow and a family dog. Buddy appears to be almost completely blind. His owner writes, 'We noticed some changes in the past few months with Buddy. Then one day we noticed he was bumping into things. We suspected he was going blind. We took him to vet and confirmed but also we took him to optomologist. He has osteomyelitis which has caused detached retinas in both eyes. He also has mild cataracts. He is slightly Boe legged in front legs due to osteomyelitis.' Buddy adapts well to new situations despite his blindness. His owner tells us, 'Even though he has recently been blind I have taken him on new walk routes as well as my parents house and he did wonderful there. Still very playful and adapts well to surroundings' Other than his vision, his owner tells us Buddy is in good health, and that he is happy and playful. 'He is still a puppy at heart. Very loving and loves to play still including fetch. He would be a good family dog but would need to teach him to not jump . He has recently been jumping up.' Buddy is hoping for his second chance!
