Additional info you might want to know about me:
Well, hello there! My name is Buford or “Big Buford” or even “Boofie!” I may be a senior dog but I have the heart and mentality of a puppy. I was a owner surrender who was treated like a king as my past owner would mix home cooked meals with my dog food and sit beside me while I enjoy my delicious 5 star entree.. it was WONDERFUL! My foster parents are a little more stern with their food but, I will continue to pout and drool while they eat hoping they change their minds. With this being said, I will need someone who will be stern on me trying sneak a bite or two from their plate.. unfortunately *sighs*
Unlike a puppy, I am house trained!I enjoy going for late night strolls or getting a little tan in the sun! I just LOVE being with my humans! I will follow you all around the house.. cry for you outside the bathroom door, block the door when you try to leave me and sometimes lay by your feet if your working from home! If there’s a lot of people over, I tend to get very anxious and will start panting fast, running around the house and chewing on things I shouldn’t chew. I can also get a short burst of energy where I want to chew on blankets, couch pillows, my bed and shoes. My foster family calls me an interior decorator because I always place their shoes somewhere new if left out. Someone who can help redirect my energy, be stern and have tons of patience would be very IDEAL for me as I was never told “no” before!
