Buster was on our waiting list for over a year before we were finally in a position to help him. He was loved and doted on by his previous owners but sadly the husband developed Dementia and the situation became difficult as a result. Through no fault of his own Buster had to be confined to the kitchen and back garden. The lady of the house was heartbroken to have to part with him but given the circumstances it was the best thing for Buster.
Buster is an amazing dog and we are truly besotted with him. However he does not cope very well with stress and can be quite challenging at times!
Buster goes home with a member of staff for short breaks away from the rescue and in the home he is an absolute angel. Away from the hustle and bustle and general stress of kennel life he truly thrives. He has so much potential and in the right home with an experienced owner we are sure he will blossom.
For the last year in his home he wasn't walked due to the circumstances of his owners. We have now re-introduced him to walkies and he is thoroughly enjoying himself whilst out and about! Generally Buster walks really well on a lead however he can be strong when he is distracted by a passerby or a dog whilst out walking. Care will need to be taken on walks as he can be very reactive and may lunge or bark, however he responds well to using treats as distraction when or if needed. He is an intelligent boy, desperate to please and respond to you. He has so much potential and we can't stress enough how much we love him!
Any potential home would need to meet Buster a few times before adoption. He can be a little stressed around the rescue but away from here in a loving, calm home environment we believe he would soon settle down and make the most affectionate, loyal and devoted companion.
Buster will need an adult only home free from visiting children or children planned for the future. He will also need to be the only pet. As he is reactive he will not be suitable to live in flats or any accommodation where he may come into close contact with other dogs and people.
Buster seems to cope well with being left for a few hours so long as he has a nice comfy bed to snooze in! We believe someone with experience of dogs, preferable rescue dogs and especially strong breeds would suit Buster best.
We cannot stress enough how much we love this boy, he is a big baby and so affectionate! We believe he will make such an amazing companion.
