Name: Buddy - ADOPTED!
Age:  9 years (2011)
Breed: Pointer/Spaniel

History:   Buddy was resident at Appledown Kennels, one of our Dog Trouble Foundation Rescue programme recipients. They were concerned about his stress levels and asked us to consider accepting him on our rehabilitation programme.


Likes:  Buddy loves his runs in the morning with the gang. He feels ‘at home’ when he’s with the Dog Trouble Pack.


Dislikes:  New environments, particularly busy places; Loud noises and sudden movement.

Issues:  Buddy was a typical example of a dog who had been bred and raised in a poor environment, then dumped along with his siblings. A clear lack of early socialisation meant that Buddy was frightened of ‘life’ and had adopted the flight/avoidance behaviour to survive. Buddy has been at Dog Trouble for nearly 4 years now and has got more confident with ‘life’. He still goes into ‘flight’ when approached by people he doesn’t know but has learned to trust the Dog Trouble team.
