Buzz ~ in Central Coast CA


When I took the ride to the shelter, I was a terrible mess. My once long luxurious coat was so matted and dirty it could not be brushed. I hadn't found much to eat while I was lost so my ribs stuck out. I was happy to be safe in the shelter. My owners never came for me, so I was neutered, all my hair was buzzed off, and I was offered up for adoption.

A woman came to look at me and to talk to me. I was scared and anxious. Later that day she returned and took me to her house. I had lots of good food and a warm bed to sleep in. She calls me Buzz, after my silly haircut. No one would ever guess that I was a Silky Terrier. I am glad
to be here. I run and jump  in the fenced yard and come to her when I am called. I get treats and can run around the house and sit on laps when the other dogs here are crated. I never threaten the people here, but those other dogs should stay away from me!



I need a new forever home with a secure fence and no other dogs around. I don't know about cats. Probably gentle children would be fine, but no rough stuff.

Buzz is a small dog and his to-the-skin hair cut makes him look smaller and his ears bigger! He has luxating patellas (kneecaps that are not tight) .  His teeth are sound and clean. He is bright eyed and friendly with people. He is apparently quite healthy, and is gaining weight due to his big appetite! He wears a belly band and it would be best if he always wore it indoors. He is normally quiet in a crate and sleeps in one during the night.

Buzz's adoption fee is $200.00
