Meet Buddy. He's the latest edition to the family. He's a wire-haired Jack Russell terrier. Buddy was in a fire, was burned very bad and had lost all of his fur. He was taken in by a local kennel who nursed him back to health. Constant medicine baths, medications and creams. Literally thousands of dollars in care. While this kennel was caring for him, his old family found out where he was and went to get him. Unfortunately, when they saw how he looked from the burns, they decided that they didn't want him. How fucking despicable people can be. If I worked at the kennel and they came in and said that they didn't want him now I'd fucking kill them. Well, their loss our gain.
Buddy is a great little dog. He's 4 years old, was already house broken and while the kennel had him they taught him tricks while taking his mind off of his therapy. The kennel could not afford to keep him any longer and were going to send him to a local shelter. They dreaded that no one would adopt him and he would be put to sleep. They decided to list him on PetFinder. Lucky for us that we had been looking on that very site. After seeing his listing, I contacted the foster home and set up a meeting. I fell in love with him immediately and decided I wanted to take him home. It was that simple. The next day, I picked him up and he is now a member of the family.
If any of you are looking for a new cat or dog, be sure to look on PetFinder. They literally have thousands of animals who need a home.
