This lit­tle guy can be your new Buddy

The Riverine Herald - - REFLECTIONS FROM THE PAST -

HIS name is Buddy. He is old and wise. Per­haps his nick­name could be Bud­weiser — or he could just be your new best friend.

Buddy is a 13-year-old de­sexed male Jack Rus­sell Ter­rier mixed breed and is avail­able for adop­tion at the Cam­paspe An­i­mal Shel­ter.

This kind old lad is full of love and af­fec­tion and will fit right into his new fam­ily home.

But there are a few ex­tra health con­cerns that you should keep an eye on with Buddy.

He has cataracts which is nor­mal in older dogs and th­ese are not cur­rently caus­ing any is­sues.

He also has a lux­at­ing patella which is very com­mon in smaller breeds and doesn’t re­quire any treat­ment as yet.

Buddy is also af­ter a new owner who is will­ing to keep his weight un­der con­trol.

He is cur­rently car­ry­ing a lit­tle ex­tra bag­gage which needs to be ad­dressed as with­out a strict weight loss man­age­ment plan, his health may rapidly de­cline.

Al­though he isn’t show­ing any sign of dis­eases that can be as­so­ci­ated with ex­tra weight.

Not only will his life be en­riched by los­ing weight but his life span will be ex­tended giv­ing him many happy years ahead with his new owner.

With his out­go­ing per­son­al­ity and zest for life Buddy is sure to brighten up any fam­ily home and will make a very loyal com­pan­ion.

Buddy is avail­able for adop­tion for $175.

You can or­gan­ise a meet and greet with him by call­ing 5480 3005.
