Hernando — Buster

Buster is a 1-year-old tan male Terrier mix. He loves to be cuddled and petted. He’s very playful and prefers his time outside in his spree area. He would benefit from a fenced yard allowing him plenty of room to play. Buster isn’t fond of other animals, so he should be the only animal in the house.
