Buddy by name and buddy by nature. This beautiful tan and white bundle of fun and love didn’t have the best start to family life, but rest assured, we have a happy ending in store.
At nine months old Buddy was dropped off to the Animal Welfare League (AWL) malnourished and with nothing more than an explanation that he was a ‘dangerous dog, he bites and he needs to be put down’. This isn’t what Angela saw when she viewed Buddy’s profile on the AWL website. Angela immediately knew she had to meet him.
Turning up an hour before AWL’s opening time, Angela wanted to be the first to meet Buddy. As soon they met, they both knew that Buddy had found his fur-ever home.
Unfortunately, Buddy had to move to his grandparents when there was a change in Angela’s living circumstances. Private rentals that didn’t allow pets, along with unstable accommodation left these best mates separated for more than a year.
Now happily reunited in their new home, Buddy and Angela have started a new life, where Buddy will sit for hours looking out the front window or at the screen door, listening to the children from the nearby primary school. Angela is careful to lock the screen door because Buddy has figured out how to open it by dragging his paws on the handle so that he can go out the front and play with his neighbour. Clever Buddy!
Life is looking bright for Buddy, filling his days daydreaming at the window, hiding his treats in his mum’s plants and receiving all the pats and belly rubs he could ever want!
Dogs leave pawprints on our hearts!
