Sammy was found on the street almost 2 years ago, extremely malnourished and scared. He is now 3 years old and 20 kg. He is in a fosterhome in Norway with another dog, a cat and is also getting used to horses :) His fostermom has a blogg with lots of information about Sammy(she calls him Viktor) its in Norwegian.
Sammy is an easy dog to have off-leash and will always check to see where you are, he walks nicely on the leash. He is used to travelling in the car and does so without any problems, and will lay down until the trip is done. Sammy does not respond well to a harsh tone and will turn into a tiny little lump on the floor, he is a really quick learner and enjoys training with positive reinforecment. Sammy is looking for an active home, with understanding people who will scratch his nose and let him lay on top of you in the couch ;)

Mikey is a happy, energetic young dog, that behaves like a big funny clown! He gets perfectly fine along with other dogs, and is happily wagging his tail whenever someone is visiting. He is easily trained, and knows the commands "sit" and "lay down" by now. He can be off the leash, but as a young dog, he gets easily distracted and focused on more "interesting" things.
Mikey is looking for a home with someone that likes the active outdoor life, and that will stimulate and challenge his true nature!
Sara Gender: Female Age: 3 years old Weight: 10kg Breed: Dachsmix Sterilized: Yes
Sara was living in a garden with her Mother, siblings and several other dogs. The family had too many dogs and the local municipality demanded that some be either re-homed or put to sleep, so we took her on along with her Mother and 2 sisters.
Sara is blind in one eye from an injury, but it requires no medical treatment and she can live a normal life. She is very friendly and has adapted well to living in the city with her fosterparents. She is house trained and can be left home alone with no problems. She walks nicely on or off the leash and gets on well with other dogs and also cats.
Age: 4-5 years old
Breed: Terrier mix
Billy was tied to a tree for 2 years without any place to seek shelter before his owners were finally persuaded to give him up for adoption. He had a injured leg, injuries to his neck from the chain and a bullet under the skin on his back so needed extensive medical treatment from which he has recovered well.
Billy is careful in new situations but once he is comfortable he is a happy outgoing boy who welcomes everyone with a wagging tail. He gets on well with other dogs and walks nicely on the leash. Billy can be left alone with no problems - he barks for a minute or two but quickly settles down to sleep. Billy loves human affection and his ideal home would be one where he gets lots of cuddles and attention. He is equally suited to living in a city or country environment.
Age: Born January 2010
Weight: aprox. 45 kg
Breed: Hungarian Kuvasz
Dougal is a sweet natured and absolutely beautiful boy who came to the attention of Budadogs via another organization who had seen him in a shelter in Eger and asked us to help. He had been dumped there by an unscrupulous breeder along with his brothers and sisters because of a treatable skin condition which has now cleared up – the breeder simply didn’t want to spend the extra money on medicine. The shelter was built for 40 dogs, but now houses 140 in deeply unsanitary conditions, and since the puppies were not vaccinated the rest of the litter died. Dougal somehow survived long enough for us to take him.
Dougal has gained confidence since we have had him but is still somewhat shy with people. He is great with other dogs and gets on well with both male and females of all ages / sizes. This lovely boy badly needs a kind understanding home where he can continue to learn to trust people in a calm and gentle environment. He is a young dog who will give many years of pleasure and devoted companionship to his new family. The breed is known to be loyal guardians of the family.

Charlie Gender: Male Age: Born in November, 2009. Weight: 25 kg Breed: Husky mix Castrated: Yes
(Currently living in Norway)
Charlie was found in a ditch in a forest between two villages, most likely dumped by his previous owners.
He is a calm and loving dog that loves people, even strangers. Charlie is ok with being left home alone, but will howl the first few minutes before he settles down, when you return to the house Charlie will greet you with a Husky "Speech". A happy dog that loves water, driving in a car, and enjoys being around other dogs. Charlie is obedient and walks nicely on he lead, since he is "always hungry" as his fosterdad puts it, Charlie is easy to train :) When in the garden he will bark if anyone passes, but never aggressively and loves them as soon as he realizes they are visitors. He will chase cats if given the opportunity, and small animals, but scared of sheep, cattle and other bigger animals. Charlie is in general a very calm and easy going dog. He doesn't jump or get excited when he meet people, and he usually just walks around sniffing when he is off the lead. He can even decide to just lie down and watch the other dogs play. Charlie is good with children. He will fit into most households. Not afraid of big cities.
John Gender: Male (castrated) Age: 1-2 years old Weight: 21kg
John has been on a chain since he was a puppy, and we sorely want to offer him a better life in a safe home. John is a very devoted and kind dog, with a good temper. He has been living with three other dogs and he gets on very well with all of them. Never initiated any problems or fights, even when two dogs turned against each other he remained calm. John has never lived with children before, but has been tested with them and his reaction was good. John did not jump, and was very friendly with them. John is a soft dog who is very eager to learn, He is housetrained and he does not mark everywhere when out for a walk, and as it says above, he gets along with all dogs that he meets. John is a joy to have around you, and such a sweet loving dog!

Kristian Gender: Male Age: 5-7 years old Weight: 20 kg Breed: Shepherd mix Castrated: Yes
Kristian is a soulful and friendly, calm dog. He gets on well with other female dogs but has some difficulties with males, he is currently living with a puppy and behaves very well towards her. He is old at heart, but it is nearly impossible to know his age, because he has lost several of his teeth, and many of the remaining teeth are ruined probably because of him chewing his chain or rocks.
Kristian is not an active dog and needs an owner who wants a stroll round the park rather than a jogging companion. He is used to apartment life and likes to sleep most of the day.
We would love this old gentleman to go to a kind, loving home where he can live out his days in the comfort he deserves.
Truls Gender: Male Age: approx. 4 years old Weight: 31 kg Height: 62 cm Castrated: Yes
Truls was rescued from Illatos, the municipal dog pound, in september 2009. He had been confiscated by the police from an apartment in Budapest with 10 of his siblings. They had been left there for a month with no food. Accordingly Truls was extremely thin when he came to us. His body was also covered in lesions and patches and he was microfilaria repens positive. All of these health problems have been successfully treated and he is now a healthy normal dog. Truls is clicker trained and can do all the basic commands, and some tricks like balancing a treat on his nose and bow down to people. Truls is a very affectionate boy who loves to get cuddles. He is good with dogs. This hansome boy loves all people as long as they pet him and preferably have him on their lap :) Truls really deserves a second chance at a happy life and will be a devoted companion to his adopters.

He is living together with other dogs, and he is doing very well. One of the dogs in his pack gets epileptic seizures from time to time, and when she does, Pedro is the only dog which stays calm and give her some distance. He is also very gentle with puppies. He let them jump onto him, and sometimes he is playing with them like he was a puppy himself. Pedro's pack does also consist of a cat, and he couldn't behave better towards it. He doesn't mind being home alone. Pedro has never got used to the city life, and needs a home in the countryside where he can live in a calm non-stressful environment. He is afraid of very load noises like fireworks.

Age: 3 to 5 years
Weight: 25 kg
Breed: Large terrier mix
We found Trond straying at a busy road crossing with trucks and cars going by at a fast pace. Whenever a car stopped to give way, Trond ran towards it, wagging his tail. One could speculate that he had been taken to this area by car, because his approach to each vehicle was with such excitement and anticipation.
Trond`s terrible state became even more apparent as we saw him up close. His body covered in crusts and lesions, his bones visible; he was famished and thirsty and obviously in desperate need of medical treatment which is most likely the reason why he had been placed on the streets in the first place. Trond received the medical check-up and treatment he needed from a dermatologist.
Trond is now in a fosterhome with a student, and she tells us he is doing great! He is friendly with people including strangers both in the house and on the street. He walks nicely on the lead and has no problems being left home alone. Trond is good with other dogs but can sometimes be a bit bossy with other big males. As is typical of many strays he will eat any food left lying around but this has not been a serious problem. He has learned some basic commands such as 'sit' and 'lie down' and enjoys training sessions. He will make a great companion for his new owners.
Balder Gender: Male Age: Born in the beginning of September 2010. Weight: 27.5 kg Height: 61cm Castrated: Yes

Marlon Brando Gender: Male Age: 1 year old Weight: approx. 20kg Breed: Viszla mix Castrated: Yes
Marlon Brando was caught in a dog-trap outside a village on the 3rd of December. The traps function is to capture stray and unwanted dogs so they can be put down. Marlon had been straying the village for around 3 months when he got caught, and a family living near the trap happened to come upon him. They took him out of the trap, where he surely would be shot by locals or put down by the dog catcher, and contacted the local rescue organization asking them to help. Our attention was brought to the situation, and we took him into our care. Marlon is a absolutely adorable, kind, affectionate and loving boy. He gets along well with other dogs.
