Training Zaguate Pup “Buddy”

Zaguate means "unwanted dog" or mongrel in Costa Rica.


Buddy is our little Board & Train foster from PATA Sámara Animal Rescue. He is learning sit, down, come, hand touch, and to wait at doors. He will be ready for his forever family soon!

In Costa Rica there are many street dogs (or, “zaguates” en español). This lil’ guy was starving and suffering from both the tick-borne disease Ehrlichia and extreme anemia when he came to Sámara rescue org PATA…

Now putting on weight and healing nicely, he’s ready to learn basic obedience and house manners!
