Education: Good with bathroom and leash training
Favorite Activities: Loves to go on easy walks, enjoys car rides, hanging out with his family and foster dog siblings.
Looking for: A loving family that is cognizant of his hip issues and will keep him comfortable with pain medication. He will need a single story home with no stairs or help with 2-3 stairs. He would be best by himself, or with submissive, chilled-out dogs(but needs separate feeding).
Special needs: He will have to take pain management pills for hip dysplasia and will need Tramadol, Carprofen, Gabapentin, Amantadine, Dasuquin (Monthly cost range from $175-325, depending on market value). He will need periodic blood work to check on liver values (due to the Carprofen).

Hey hey! Don’t mind me snuggling over here with ya! My name is Buick and I am a 7 year old, male St. Bernard. I am a gentle giant at about 120 lbs. I was struggling in Ensenada, Mexico with some chronic pain and The Animal Pad came along like angels and rescued me. I have been hanging along with my foster and getting care by the vets for hip dysplasia. I will have medication for the rest of my life to keep me comfy along with regular blood tests, and you’ll have my heart for taking care of this big boy. I have been a wonderful house guest by perfecting bathroom and leash manners. I have been fixed too!
Regarding my medical needs, I will have to take pain management pills for hip dysplasia. I will need Tramadol, Carprofen, Gabapentin, Amantadine, Dasuquin (Monthly cost range from $175-325, depending on market value). I will need periodic blood work to check on liver values (due to the Carprofen). Just letting y’all know!
I am an easy-going, low key boy and I like to lay low in the house. I absolutely live for cuddles and belly rubs, and all the affection they come with. I have longed for love my entire life, and now I am getting hoards of it at TAP. As sweet as I am, I can be a stubborn boy. Do try treats if you need me to do anything. 😉 I quite like car rides and the wind in my face, and leisurely walks are super fun! I get along okay with my foster dog siblings since they know to let me be. I do need to be fed separately. I cant live with a cat, na-ah.
I absolutely cant wait for my furever home and you can catch the longing in my droopy, bernard-ey eyes. I would love a family that pays attention to my body needs and keeps my comfortable with my medication up-to-date. I would do best as an only dog, and if have to be, with older and submissive, chilled-out dogs. These hips don’t lie and they aren’t for crazy playtimes or stairs, and I need a single story homr. If you think we can have the snuggliest time together, meet me! My adoption fee is $100 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
