You might have to see him in action to be convinced of natural ability to be aware of the seniors and other adults around him. Yes, he is very cute. Yes, sometimes people look at him and are not sure exactly what he is. “Is that a dog?” “What is it?” Most people know that it is something living because he moves. His legs are way too big for the rest of his body and his moves command attention as one naturally notices that something is not in proportion. Spend a little time with Buddy and you too will find him endearing. He seems to have a sense of who needs him and how to be with each person. He can comfortably sit on laps or be still so that he can be admired from close and afar.
