More about BUDDY

Meet Buddy! This simply glorious boy is a stunning example of a Standard Poodle both in his dashing good look and clown-like behaviours!

Buddy came into our care after his owners were unable to meet his exercise needs or match his high energy. Buddy is a young dog who can lack manners with people and other dogs, offering bouncy and juvenile behaviours which may not always be well received. Buddy is looking for a new family who have the energy and fitness to keep up with him and who are keen on continuing his training and providing his super intelligent poodle brain with plenty of mental stimulation each day. Due to his energy, Buddy will need a secure private garden of his own in a quieter location, away from busy cities or towns.

Buddy could possibly live with another dog, pending intros at our Brands Hatch centre. He is quite playful with other dogs but has not been well socialised, so does not always read their body language very well. If he did live with another dog, it would ideally need to be a robust role model of a similar size, who will offer interactions to Buddy but also be a good influence on him. Buddy has some good basics in place already such as a 'sit', and he walks beautifully on lead for a dog of his size.

If they have have not owned one before, his new family will ideally have thoroughly researched the Standard Poodle breed before taking him on, as very typical of his breed he is highly intelligent, highly energetic and will require above average exercise and stimulation. Buddy will also need his gorgeous coat regularly maintained both at home and via a professional groomer, so owner's will need to be aware of the cost implications of taking on such a breed.

If you have a sense of humour, a sense of adventure and are looking for a rambunctious and funny companion to exercise with and train, then Buddy could well be the friend for you - please contact our Brands Hatch rehoming team at bbh.rehomers@battersea.org.uk.
