Learning House Breaking! 

“I’m with you til the end of the line, pal.” – Bucky Barnes, Captain America: Winter Soldier

Meet Bucky! This cute little fella is around 2 years old and weighs a whopping 8 pounds. What he lacks in poundage he surely makes up for in charm! Bucky is currently undergoing treatment for heartworm but as soon as he’s well, he’ll be looking forward to meeting his forever family.

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Bucky is still learning the art of housebreaking but he is well on his way! He does great on a schedule when his foster mom takes him out every 4-6 hours. Bucky is an angel in his crate, sleeping soundly through the night and keeping his space mess-free. He even enjoys relaxing in there all day with the door open but comes trotting out of there when he thinks his foster mom could use a good lap snuggle. Bucky is still new around here but has already mastered his “sit” command. He will surely be adding more commands to his repertoire in no time. Good work, Bucky!

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Bucky has buddied up with his foster mom, but he is less sure about dogs at the moment. Foster Mom is working with him on his socialization and in building up Bucky’s confidence.

Behavior around People

Bucky is shy at first but once he warms up, friends forever!

Exercise Needs

We are keeping Bucky’s exercising to a minimum while he undergoes heartworm treatment, but for now, he really enjoys walking around outside and smelling all the smells. He really likes toys, so long as they don’t contain a scary squeaker! His favorite activity for the moment is burrowing under blankets and cuddling with his foster mom. Stay tuned as we learn more about Bucky!

Bucky is a shy, sweet little guy with the cutest butt wiggle in all the land. Think you’re ready to meet your new best friend? Contact us today!
