I often find myself muttering that I’m not a fan of humans and run off to the stables to be loved by horses and the stable yard dogs instead. Animals are the best.
It’s on this note that I introduce Buster.
This sweet guy is about 4 years old and is in need of a loving home. He is a Labrador X breed, and by the look of his regal nose, possibly some greyhound heritage. He was rescued from a breeder and is currently in kennels in Cape Town until 10 December and so needs a home quite urgently!
Buster has overcome some hard knocks in life, and now he would like to settle with a human or human family who will appreciate him for all he has to offer. Buster is committed to people, he loves his foster Mum to the point that he would defend her against anyone who looks suspicious. But sadly, Buster does not appear to get on with other animals, and needs to be an only pet. He would be perfect for a single pet home, a person or a family who will manage a walk, provide a place to splash in a kids pool, and generally be committed to a big “softie” who prefers his own company with his human family. He is thriving on Positive Reinforcement and clicker training, so he won’t suit a person or family who train with chocker chains or other harsh methods. Buster gives unconditionally, and would appreciate an owner who will do the same for him. Buster is young, vaccinated, neutered and has a team of behaviour experts, a foster mum and Labrador rescue looking out for him at the moment.
He is big and strong, smart and loves with all his heart, but has just had a really crap time so far with life.
If you know anyone who is interested in fulfilling Buster’s Christmas wish list (it’s only one item, really), please pass this on and contact the Lab Rescue guys as soon as possible to arrange a meeting.
