Dog Was Devastated When His Family Surrendered Him To A Shelter Where They First Met Him

As I was reading the story I am about to talk about, something about it was just really sad and depressing.

When dogs get adopted, many of them don’t imagine that their owners would ever leave their side, but when it does happen, it’s just heartbreaking.

What makes it even worse for this story is that the dog’s owners surrendered the pup to the shelter where they first met him.

When Buddy was first surrendered to an animal shelter in Texas, it was because his owner had a lot of health problems and couldn’t take care of him anymore.

This devastated him, as he did not understand why this was happening and he couldn’t do anything about it.

However, this was not the end of Buddy’s unfortunate situation. His own health also started to deteriorate and the workers at the shelter wanted to do something to help him.

Hehad problems walking on his hind legs and he needed somebody who could look after him the whole way through his recovery.

So, the staff had to react fast and find a medical foster for him in Texas, as he was on the euthanization list and didn’t have much time.

That’s when the miracle happened and somebody stepped in to take him in. When his new parents showed up at his kennel, Buddy perked up after seeing treats.

Buddy Is The Sweetest Dog

For a moment, he was happy to see someone who showed some care and compassion for him. Now, all that remained was to take him to a safe place.

His new parents placed him in a car and took him to his new home where he could finally relax a little.

They took him to the vet the following day and they found that he had yeast dermatitis, stiff joints, and sore legs. 

Luckily, they were able to give him the necessary medication to help him heal. Now, it was time for him to go back home.

Several days went by and his parents realized just how much happier he was now that he was with them and actually enjoying his life.

One of his favorite activities is lying next to his new dad and taking a long nap. He also enjoys playing with toys often.

Buddy gets really excited when it’s his meal time. His parents noticed that he likes ham a lot, for some reason, which makes eating all the more special for him.

He went from being a sad, abandoned dog to a really happy and healthy one in such a short time. It’s amazing how he made such a recovery, thanks to his parents.
