Hi my name is Sambuca but I get called Buca and respond to my name.
As you have probably noticed I have a unique look but don’t let that fool you I’m a happy outgoing little pup with a huge personality.
As a tiny pup I was unable to latch onto my mum so was surrendered to Safe Haven for them to help me. I was tube fed and cared for round the clock by my foster mum. I have had my ups and downs with my health but the vets are now extremely happy with how I’m doing and I’m now desexed and vaccinated and ready for my forever home. I’m very brave when I have my needles and love the treat I get for being a good boy.
I absolutely love my food but I prefer solid biscuits as it does not get stuck in my cleft, if any food does just stuck there its easy to get it out with a wet wipe. I love chewing on bones and pigs ears I’m really no different to other pups and I don’t see myself any different at all.
I have grown up around kids and I love playing with them but please remember I’m a pup so sometimes I forget they are small and catch them with my sharp teeth. I would prefer kids over 5 really or kids that have been used to dogs ideally. I would also be absolutely fine as an only dog as happy with my own company, just leave me some toys and I can keep myself occupied. I have no separation anxiety. I’m great with other dogs small or large and I know when they are old or grumpy and to stay away from those ones when they tell me. I’ve not had cats around me but I’m sure I will go ok with careful introductions.
I don’t need a huge yard but would love a good walk daily. I have been crate trained and have good toilet habits. I’m dry at night but still have the occasional accident if I get caught short but if I know where to go I’m really good.
I have had a few long car rides and have no issues at all I don’t get sick and just go to sleep in my comfy bed.
I don’t mind my lead and I’m now in training to walk on the lead now that I’ve have my vaccinations.
I have to be honest I do snore a little bit when I lay on a flat bed so if you want peace and quiet I would provide me with a bed with soft sides. I don’t mind my jacket on and I actually think I look pretty cute in it.
I’m very adaptable and have had a couple of different carers and just take it in my stride, as long as I get attention I’m really very happy. I don’t whine/moan or bark much and everyone I meet thinks I’m a lovely pup and very easy going. I will really be a great addition to any home and can’t wait to start my life with my forever family.
