Bam (also answers to Buddy) found us on January 1, 2022, following fireworks and a storm. He walked right into his foster’s garage and went straight through the door and into the house. We know he was well cared for because he is very well trained, but we were unable to locate his original family.
This sweet pup is fixed, 100% house broken, fetches-but plays tug of war, knows commands sit/lay down/shake/kennel up. He is primarily an inside dog and prefers to sleep on the bed or couch. He is high energy when playing outside so a fenced yard is a must and since we did not want to risk him getting out, we never left him unattended while having outside time.
The ideal family for Bam would be one that will allow him to live inside as a member of the family. He loves to sit on the couch and watch tv with the family. He would need a large fenced back yard to play fetch and be able to run at full speed, as he is energetic while having outside time. He will need to be supervised in the yard as we think he would be able to jump a fence and may be a flight risk when he is first in his new home. He will jump on you when playing, but we are working on that. He follows his person around the house while doing daily activities and longs to be a side-kick to his people.
Bam loves to play. He does not know that other dogs may not be ready to play. He often will roll over, belly up, to let the other dogs get acquainted. He has been around teenage children and loved them! He rides well in a car and is crate and house trained.
