Buddha is not ready for adoption yet. Buddha was rescued from a horder in middle TN. Buddha had been in a cage for the first five years of his life with little human contact. We have had Buddha in our rescue for months and he is doing better now, he loves his foster Mom and will let her pet and brush him, but he is still extremely fearful of new people. It took a couple of months with a 50 foot lunge lead to get him in and out of the house to do his business. For the last couple of months he goes in and out by being herded back into the house where he goes straight back into his crate which is a safe place for him. Buddha has no concept of walking on lead, even in the yard he is fearful and spooks unless if is only him and his foster Mom. Buddha LOVES other dogs and it has been joyous to see him get to run and romp many times daily with his Husky friends. Buddha is very prey driven towards smaller animals and cats and could not be safely re-homed with smaller animals or children under 12 years of age. Even though Buddha is not ready for adoption, you can sponsor Buddha’s care by clicking on his PoundWishes list. Or you can go to our Amazon page to see treats he loves.
Thanks for choosing rescue! All of our rescues are temperament tested around children of all ages, small and large dogs and cats. They all have basic training, IE; sit; down, come and walking on a lead. We are not a shelter, we are a rescue and all of our rescued dogs are kept in individual foster/volunteers homes. This gives them sometimes their first taste of having a family and being part of that family. Also, it provides us with the understanding of each individual rescue to match them to your family lifestyle and dynamics. As soon as we receive your application back, we will phone you to set up a home visit/meet & greet. If you are out of our area, we would request another rescue and/or veterinary office complete the home visit.
All of our rescues are completely vetted prior to adoption. Also, completed prior to adoptions are heartworm treatments as needed, any medical conditions treated (IE; allergies, demedex, etc.) and any surgeries for dogs coming into the rescue injured (IE; car accidents, etc.). Below is the vetting that all of our rescues receive prior to adoption. We only pull dogs from shelters and approximately 80% of our rescues come into the rescue heartworm positive. Those rescues are treated for heartworms prior to adoption.
