Buster, a 9-year-old heeler dog, is still full of life and is waiting for a new home.

Buster arrived at the Clarke County Animal Shelter in Berryville about a month ago, said Brittany Wren, kennel attendant at the shelter.

“He still has a lot of love to give somebody,” Wren said, as Buster was jumping around the lawn in front of the shelter.

“He’s still very playful for being an older gentleman,” she said.

Buster may have selective hearing, but Wren said that hasn’t slowed him down. He still loves to play and be around people.

“He’s super sweet,” Wren said.

She said he does well with other dogs, but shelter workers don’t know how he would react around cats. Wren added that he is housebroken.

“He would probably do better in a relaxed home but would still fit in well in a home with kids,” she said.

“He’s just laid-back, go with the flow,” Wren added.

Buster is not neutered and that must happen before he leaves the shelter with his new owner. His neutering fee depends on where you live, but his adoption fee is $25.

He has a microchip but it hasn’t been registered.

For more information on adopting Buster, contact the shelter at 225 Ramsburg Lane, Berryville, by calling 540-955-5104 or visiting http://clarkecounty.gov/residents/animal-shelter.html
