Make way for Cake Boss Buddy Valastro! This 3-year-old guy is an adorable secret recipe mutt, giving us basset hound/retriever vibes. Buddy is a sweetheart but is looking for an experienced adopter who is ready to build a strong training foundation from day 1. Buddy has exhibited some resource guarding behaviors and will need to have firm and consistent boundaries to succeed in his new home. He may be named after the Cake Boss, but this guy needs to know YOU'RE the boss or he might fall back into past behavioral issues. We're happy to work with adopters to set Buddy up for success and make sure this goofy guy can be his very best self with you. Buddy weighs a fluffy 55 lbs. He is good with other dogs, housebroken, and crate-trained. Apply to make this cutie yours at or email for more info.
