XBOX 360/PS3/PC/XBOX ONE: Mr. Buddy is located in the Home Castle level. In the first room of the game, with the four Tutorial Characters, locate the one in medical clothing. There is an X in the hay at the far left under the Vet. Dig it up with the Shovel, an item found in Desert, to get Mr. Buddy. On Insane Mode nothing changes.
- Mr. Buddy is the first Animal Orb the player can obtain in a new game if they start with the Shovel.
- The name "Buddy" appears in the game's credits, hinting that Mr. Buddy (like Pazzo and Sherbert) is named after one of the developers pets.
- When Mr. Buddy is helping you dig, he will spin over the X you are trying to dig at.
- If you are attacked, and thus interrupting the dig, Mr. Buddy will spin over the X and will yield nothing.
- Mr. Buddy resembles a Doberman Pinscher.
- Mr. Buddy is one of the 4 Animal Orbs you dig up along with Giraffey, Frogglet, and Chicken.
