|SOMEHOW, I got him to sit still for this photo!|
Buddy is just the sweetest dog. But really all dogs are sweet! When we got him he was between 1 and 2 years old and we were his fourth owner! He started out as a pup with a couple station at Ft. Dix in New Jersey. When his people were deployed to Afganastan, he went into the pound and a few months later he was adopted by a 70 year woman. Mind you, he's 90 lbs and although not at all mean or aggressive, it is Buddy's world and he kind of does what he wants. She quickly discovered he was a bit too much for her and back to the pound he went. His next home was to a man named Ross, who as I recall, trained police dogs. Ross taught Buddy some better habits (which I have not followed thru on, sorry Ross!). Ross had to have heart surgery and could not give Buddy the attention he felt he needed so with tears in his eyes, he brought Buddy to the rescue agency we adopted Buddy from. We were lucky in that we were able to communicate with Ross before and after adopting Buddy.
Happy Valentines Day!
