When Buddy was found, he was inside a crate that was too small for him. A Henry County Humane Society volunteer was walking another dog when he noticed the crate outside the rescue’s then-unfinished new building. The dog was too big for the crate and the small space left him cramped.
The volunteer was surprised to see Buddy inside and he alerted the rescue’s president immediately who told him to bring Buddy with him back to the shelter. They wondered why would someone leave the poor dog all alone.
He was left with a note but with no food and water. The note introduced him and explained that he was given away because he outgrew the apartment that he used to live in with his former family. It said that he is good with children and that he is a very wonderful dog.
It further explained that his shots were updated and that he took his medicine for fleas that day. But the shelter had to redo his shots because they needed to be sure before they put him up for adoption. The note expressed Buddy’s need for a wide space for him to play and that leaving a loving home was very difficult for him.
Buddy was understandably confused by the sudden change in his life. But he quickly came out of his shell and showed everyone how amazing he is. The rescue received lots of adoption applications for him and they found the perfect family for Buddy.
He is now living with his family in a house with a big yard where he and his new brother spend their days running around. Meanwhile, the rescue used Buddy’s story as an inspiration to build Buddy’s Play Pen. It’s a place where abandoned dogs like him will have the space to explore and play.
