Buddy is the main protagonist in the Air Bud series. He's a golden retriever who's a real pro at basketball, football, soccer, baseball and volleyball. In the third film, he is also the father of five puppies: Budderball, B-Dawg, Buddha, MudBud and RoseBud, though none of them were given actual names until the first Air Buddies movie. Buddy only appeared in the first two series of Air Buddies, and his owner was Noah in those films.
