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 and love to play like one! I was a owner surrender who was very spoiled and loved but didn't have many rules. Because of this, I would do best with an energetic family who can commit to consistency with training and who understands I may try and sneak a bite of their food here or there. What can I say, my former owner used to cook me home cooked meals if I wanted! 😁
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.. and I can be a little clingy sometimes too but hey you ARE looking for a new bff right?! 😉 I don't love big groups of people visiting, this makes me nervous and I steal their shoes as a coping method. 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 consistent and has a good dose of patience would be very IDEAL for me as I was never told “no” before!
