Hello! My name is Buddy!

I'm a distinguished older gentleman who's hoping to find a furever home that I can spend my retirement in. I'm a shy guy and it takes me a bit of time to warm up, but if you're willing to put in the work to gain my trust it will be so worth it! Before you know it, I'll be asking you for more and more pets! I'm hoping to find a quiet, relaxed environment where I can settle down and enjoy a nice nap or a tasty snack. Do you think I would be a great fit in your home? Are you looking for a little "Buddy"?
