My name is Buddy, and I am a 7-year-old Alaskan Malamute/Akita/ I come from a remote community where I was always tied up in the front of my house. They thought I was a mean dog as I was trying to protect my space. They decided to fly me out of the community and forced me into a small kennel. To say the least, I was not impressed. I don’t like to be confined and I am a big guy so any kennel would seem small to me.
I came up to Thunder Bay and initially enjoyed being outside for most of the day (it was warm out) and then slept inside the kennel. I only barked when my favourite foster dad would come outside as I had to let him know I was outside. Then I decided to come into the house for short visits at first but then I decided I liked living in the house. I don’t cause any trouble when I am left alone. I currently live with 4 dogs and 8 cats, 2 horses and a pig.
I came in a little chunky, but I am looking pretty good these days. I was placed on a good weight management food and went on many walks with lots of different people. I have had lots of great adventures. Once I took myself on an adventure, but I decided I liked where I was and came back all on my own.
I think I have sowed my wild ways and I am ready to settle down. I am looking for a very specific home in which I can live out my days. I am a protector, so I like to go slow when meeting people outside. I also love attention and will put my head on your lap when I feel like I need a little lovin. I like children but they like to hug me and that stuff and I really don’t like that. I think I would prefer a home where there weren’t young children
