Bud came to Best Friends from a rescue group in Los Angeles. He must have spent a lot of time alone at some time in his life, because he keeps to himself and is still learning how to be friends with humans.Because he's so shy and frightened, Bud may hiss at people if they get too close, or show aggression when cornered. His caregivers are giving him space and letting him adjust to things in his own time. Born in 2008, he will need a home where people will be patient and help him learn that humans aren't going to hurt him. If you wouldn't mind putting a little extra effort into forming a bond, Bud promises he'll do the same.
