Buster is a kissy cuddly fella in search of a low-traffic solo pet home!


The basics

  • My name is Buster
  • On my last birthday, I was 8
  • I am a boy
  • I've been homeless since April 21, 2018

The good stuff

  • My best trick is giving paw! But I'd rather give you my awesome pooch smooches!
  • Me in three words: sweet, smart, and affectionate
  • How I feel about other critters: I need to be the only apple of your eye. No other critters, please!
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to cuddle and give kisses to the nice humans who take care of me. While I'm a little nervous at first when I meet new people, once I know you I just can't help but give you my famous Buster pooch smooch!
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a home, a home, a home. I've been in the shelter for so long that I've almost forgotten what it's like to have a home and humans of my own. My ideal situation is a one- or two-person household with no other animals. My new people will understand that I need time and training to help me be live my best life. It takes me a little while to warm up to new people because I've been let down for so long, so my new adopters will need to visit me at the shelter a few times to get acquainted. Please don't let me spend the rest of my life without people of my own!
