Burton is about 2 years old, 25 lbs. and maybe a dachshund, beagle, terrier mix. He’s an active fellow liking to chase and sometimes bring back a tennis ball. He was found as a stray after being hit by a car. His hind leg was broken and after a few months of splints and healing, he’s as active as ever! As active as Burton can be, he still likes to be close and curl up next to you on the couch.
Burton is crate trained and does very well in the crate and in the car. He’s working on house training and has improved greatly since being neutered. Burton is a smart guy and adapts and learns quickly. He can be a little shy when first meeting new people or dogs but seems to warm up in no time. He’s a little selective with dogs that are quite a bit bigger than him but with the right introduction he does fine. He just wants to play! We are working on getting him lots of exposure to dogs of all sizes so that with his quick adaptability, he will become fast friends with all.
He prefers to be called “Bubba” and responds well to that name and wags his tail. Since he’s a young energetic dog, he would do well to go through basic training and that is also a great bonding exercise with his new family. He loves toys especially ones he can chew. He has a good nose and may do well with some Nose work classes or even Agility. Burton would prefer to have access to a fenced yard so he can run out some of his energy and get to smell all the smells outside.
Burton is up to date on vaccines, neutered, and microchipped.
