BUDDY is a 2 year old American Pit Bull Terrier - strong-willed, obedient, loyal, friendly, clownish, courageous, energetic and very affectionate! He loves car rides and walks ... and people! He doesn't like being crated, dominant dogs, being alone, umbrellas or tupperware containers.
Buddy's original foster found him tied to a tree along Rte. 22 in Bethlehem, PA. When Buddy started jumping the fence at her home, he was transferred to another foster. This foster's work schedule has changed and Buddy is acting up due to lack of exercise. A tired dog is a good dog, and Buddy is just bored right now.
Because of his strength and high energy level, he would do best in a home with older children and where he can be the center of attention. Buddy is a fast learner and strives to please. But, he is still a work in progress. He will need the guidance of an owner familiar with the American Pit Bull breed.

Are you an INDIVIDUAL who's looking for a new addition to your family, but having trouble finding that right dog who will be the perfect fit? Would you rather not have to visit a shelter or rescue because you hate seeing all those sad faces? We'll contact local rescues and evaluate potential dogs to find your perfect new companion based on your answers on our Family Form and subsequent discussions/meetings with you.
Are you an INDIVIDUAL who is being forced to give up your dog and want to make sure he/she gets the best new home possible? Complete the Family Form so we'll know more about the dog's current living situation, and also complete the Shelter Form which will give us more details about the dog itself. Then we'll do our very best to find him/her that perfect new home.
Are you with an ANIMAL SHELTER or RESCUE having a problem placing a particular dog in their forever home? We'll help you find a new family for him/her based on your answers on our Shelter Form, an in-person evaluation of the dog, and subsequent discussions/meetings with you.
Are you a disabled vet in need of a great service dog and new faithful companion? Call us at 610-597-1324 or email us to discuss your situation and to learn more about you and the type of dog that will be best for you. We'll then contact local rescues and evaluate potential dogs to find your perfect new companion. We'll also ensure the dog is properly trained to help you with your particular needs.
*K9 Matchmaker is not a rescue nor do we have a rescue facility. We are a dog-to-family matching service; a service which we provide free of charge to individuals, rescues and shelters. Although our service is free, you may be responsible for any adoption fees charged by a shelter/rescue and/or transport charges incurred by K9 Matchmaker or a transport service.
Rescues or individuals have asked for our help in finding forever homes for these dogs. For more information about a dog,
please email or call us at 610-597-1324. You can also begin the process by completing the Family Form.
PetFinder interviewed 200 rescues and shelters to write these articles about the benefits of adopting an animal, the myths that are all too often associated with adoption, what one should consider before adopting and during the adoption process, and also tips for taking care of the new chosen pet.
