Buddy (formally Csimbi)
AVAILABLE TO ADOPT
Age: 5 years old
Breed: Hungarian puli/ Tibetan terrier cross
EU passport: yes
Buddy is a very sweet loving boy who was rescued from a scrap yard in Hungary. His owner died and he was left behind there to die too. He came to UK in March 2021. Since then he was adopted twice and let down by them…. He needs a committed owner who is very patient and experienced with large breeds (csimbi is on the larger side at 19.5 kg, 2ft tall). Buddy is only just now discovering the big wide world as he spent much of his 5yrs on a short heavy metal chain in a scrap yard. He is curious, inquisitive , needs training on recall, obedience etc. He will need formal training classes to help him along. He is in a foster home with other dogs. He gets along with dogs after proper introductions. He is not good with cats or other smaller furries eg hamsters.
Buddy has a sensitive personality, is a quick learner, very active and playful dog, who loves tug toys and chew toys. He would make a fantastic jogging/running companion.
Buddy has been a delight to have as a foster dog and he has been introduced to a lot of new people, dogs and environments, which he has taken to well after proper introductions. He will need ongoing socialisation. He is quite happy at a busy market or a quiet field. He takes time to settle in a new environment. He can become anxious but with reassurance and calming techniques, he relaxes soon enough. He settles quickly when left alone, and has been left for up to two hours while his foster carer has run errands. Buddy is clean in the house and asks to go outside when he needs to.
Overall, Buddy is a very loving dog with a lot of energy. He still needs more training and could do with attending obedience classes but his ability to learn things fast will see him adapt in no time. His foster carer feels comfortable that he can live with other dogs with proper introductions, but would be better off in a cat-free home with older children.”
Buddy can snap when cornered, anxious, afraid or overwhelmed. He gives plenty of signals though, so needs someone who knows what to look for regarding body language. He needs plenty of time to adjust in a new home (minimum of 14 days).This needs to be considered when applying for him. Can you offer a quiet, understanding home with no pressure for him? If so please apply through our website.
PS: Due to a bad experience in his adopted home, he now goes by the name of Buddy (calling him csimbi stresses him out).
