Buddy?s run of outs continues

By DARREN COYNE

IT'S not that Buddy's bad, he's just had bad luck.

The Friends of the Pound Tweed Inc is again looking for a permanent home for the little blue heeler cross his 13th so far.

Foster dog co-ordinator Susie Hearder said however that only four of those were permanent homes, the rest were with foster carers.

And of the permanents, he was returned after a marriage break-up; floods; and run-ins with chooks and cattle. On the up-side, he's great with kids, has been de-sexed, vaccinated, walks on a lead and enjoys the company of other dogs.

"He's been very unlucky. He certainly wouldn't suit an urban backyard where people are off to work everyday. He needs another dog for company and kids to play with, Ms Hearder said.

"He doesn't chase the postman and he's not a barker.

"One quirk he does have is that he loves chasing flies. Some people think he's running around in circles but he's actually chasing flies. He does a good job of it too," Ms Hearder said.
