This week we’d like to feature handsome Budreau. Budreau - Oregon Humane Society . Budreau is a 2-year, 4-month-old pitty mix who weighs in at 53 lbs. He was found as a super skinny stray in Washington County in late August, and at that time weighed only 37 pounds! Since then he’s been on a refeeding plan and has been getting healthy again. You can see from his video he’s now feeling good and is full of playful energy!
While he was healing he spent time in a foster home. Here’s what his foster parent has to say about him and his sweet personality:
‘Budreau is smart as whip and as fast as one too! He loves the chance to sprint off leash at break-neck speeds and is a natural at fetch, retrieving the ball and dropping it right at your feet. He enjoys snuggling and will put his whole body on your lap if you allow him, but it’s best to have a bone or toy ready because he is mouthy during snuggles and play. He will take his cue from you and if you put his bed in the same room as you while you work or relax he will happily chew his bone on his bed for an hour or two. I was so impressed with his house-training skills, and if he needed to potty between our times out on a walk he would go stand by the door. He’s a great walker while wearing his harness, and once he was familiar with a certain route he could walk it loose leash if there are no other dogs. In walks, he’ll take his pace from you once he’s used to a route and would be a great running companion. He jogs nicely and is never underfoot or pulling while jogging. (Now that he’s back at Oregon Humane, he’s on the OHS running team and loves it)! He knows the commands: sit, down, up-up, off, stay (until he can no longer see you), “this way!” - refocusing during walks, and “let’s go home”. He’s still learning to do some of these while distractions are present, but picks things up so quickly! He’ll come when his name is called too! Seriously stock up on chew toys, pig ears / rawhide bones, and squeaky toys because gnawing is one of his favorite down time activities. He enjoys tug-of-war, though sometimes needs breaks when he gets overexcited, and seeing him pounce on a squeaky toy is truly delightful. He will make an incredible companion for an active person or household and would do best in a home with a backyard. Budreau has so much personality, love, and is incredibly smart, with a drive to please. He’s also food motivated with the right treats!’
