Bucky has dreamed of becoming someone’s good natured companion. The handsome puppy, sporting a sleek, reddish chestnut coat with cream accents, likes to be pet, gives lots of kisses, and loves going on new adventures.

Friends at the shelter describe Bucky as a well-behaved dog. He hopes to have his instant recalls and leash-walking perfected soon.
