BUDDY ..his story
« on: July 18, 2007, 09:37:21 PM »
Buddy was snatched from the hands of death today  as this old fellow was due to be PTS tonight.  Abandoned by his owners who, despite his phone number on his collar deny all knowledge of him!! Sadly The kennels that he was in ,no longer had enough room due to the influx of dogs abandoned during the holiday season. Sadly and regretfully they had to choose 2 dogs to make way for the dogs more likely to be found a home.Buddy was a greying older lab x with a flea allergy, He was overlooked by the visitors who chose another dog, He is a friendly ,laid back chap with a wagging tail and harmless nature, so I asked if I could take him and they were so pleased ... but where do I take him at such short notice , couldnt take him to mine  so.... Justine !!!!!, ....  a phone call and now he is in the care of Justine who will make him better, until a home can be found for him,   THANKYOU for  helping us find him somewhere to stay   now he needs medical care and to realise that no-one will harm him any more,  Can we appeal for help in his medical treatment so that he will be ready for a new and forever home.

These photos show the state of neglect that Buddy had when he arrived at the kennels with overgrown toenails and bad  flea allergy , There was a noticable improvement in his skin since I first saw it  but these conditions take time to heal . He deserves a loving and caring forever home, he appears to have suffered and yet hes so forgiving......... an elderly ,greying dog that was no longer wanted!

FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE THANK K9 AND R2, OR OTHERWISE KNOWN AS "DOUBLE TROUBLE" FOR BRINGING THIS DOG TO ME AND FOR PREVENTING "BUDDY, AS MY DAD HAS RENAMED HIM" FROM BEING PUT TO SLEEP TODAY.

Since Buddy arrived at my house I have treated him for severe worms and treated him for a flea infestation. I have also noticed that Buddy has a bad walk which I think is consistant to a strong kick in the back end, this has been left to heal on its own and has left this poor boy with a funny walk, he is unable to lift his back leg. Also because of the neglect with the fleas Buddy has a very bad skin condition.

However he is now here in my home, thanks to "double trouble" and he will be cared for and within just a few weeks will be ready for a new home.

However this will take money as Buddy will need treatment for his skin and will also need to be castrated. I have today treated him for the fleas and wormed him.

WE ARE APPEALING FOR DONATIONS TO FUND THE REST OF HIS TREATMENT. I THINK THAT WE WILL NEED TO RAISE ABOUT £150.00 FOR BUDDY TO GET HIM READY FOR HIS NEW HOME.

PLEASE CAN ANYBODY HELP US RAISE THIS MONEY....... IT WILL BE MONEY WELL SPENT TO SAVE THE LIFE OF "OUR BUDDY
".  Justine
