The Pates

Buddy Pate seems to know that he has landed in a zoo director’s home, and he isn’t going to do anything to jeopardize that. “He crates himself,” explains Dennis. “We leave the door open when we go out and we find him sleeping inside when we return. It’s really a gift.”

The Pates are no strangers to dogs, so Buddy’s easy going nature is doubly appreciated. “He is just a delight,” says Jessica, “He loves being with people and really responds positively to attention.” Jessica takes the young lab out every morning and enjoys his social nature. “He has met several dogs on our walks and does just fine with them. He’s also doing well with basic commands. He’s fun, but pretty laid-back, so we just couldn’t be more pleased with him.” We know Buddy is mighty pleased as well.
