I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Buddy has been in a couple of homes in his life but is generally a well rounded laid back boy. He is looking for a secure home where he can enjoy the rest of his life without being moved again.


Hi, I’m Buddy!

I am looking for a home through Staffie and Stray Rescue via an owner surrender. I am currently in my home and well loved, however due to unforseen circumstances I am looking for a foster or forever placement.

I love making friends with new people, I can sometimes get a little overexcited and jump up but I am also easily corrected.

I am described as a very sweet boy and I know lots of commands:

  • Off
  • Sit
  • Spin
  • Wait
  • Stay
  • Too far
  • Gentle

I am very food orientated which makes me very trainable! I am also very praise driven and I want to please you.

I am used to being left for short, reasonable periods of time.

At night, I am used to sleeping in my own bed in the bedroom so that I am still close to my people.

I am fine travelling in the car with no issues.

My favourite toy is playing with my ball! I also enjoy tug toys and nylabones.

Please reach out if you can offer me a foster or forever home!


I am not dog reactive but I can sometimes be wary of unknown boisterous dogs running up to me off lead. I do have doggy friends though with no problems. I have been let off lead in my previous home with good recall however new owners would need to slowly build up to this. I walk well on lead with little pulling.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I can live with kids 12+
