Buddha (17358) A volunteer writes: Buddha is a very beautiful dog...all white. His eyes' color blends blue lagoon and tender green. He is so well groomed and the perfect weight. Buddha always welcomes me at his door and is leashed easily. He is quite a good walker, house trained, most likely, and polite to the peers we near. He ignored me at our first encounter, sniffing around the yard but then, became closer even at the point to sit upon command, eat treats gently from my hand and giving me his paw upon request. He did not care for the ball. The cold does seem to not promote playful behaviors in most short-haired dogs. Buddha lived with his family of one young child and a female dog, and they all got along fine. He needed time to warm up to strangers, and eventually did. Like toddlers, some dogs often prefer not to share their stuff. As any good human parent, the pet parent will have to teach his/her dog that sharing can eventually lead to friendship or at least, a peaceful coexistence. Gorgeous Buddha will need experienced while loving hands to bring the best out of him and make him a most wonderful forever best friend. Meet Buddha at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029 and learn more HERE.
