This is Buddy. I found him on the side of the street, when he was only a couple weeks old, abandoned, and really sick. He weighed only two pounds and had yeast infections, mange, and was severely dehydrated.
When I pulled over and approached him I thought the white spots were a part of his coat and had no idea it was patches of missing hair. Despite his fear and abandonment and unknown mistreatment he wasn't afraid to come up to me and ask for help to which I replied "It's going to be okay Buddy." Hence his name.
Sugarland, Texas, on one of the busiest suburban streets with two elementary schools and plenty of traffic I was appalled I was the first to stop and help this poor puppy.
Recovery was not easy. But some say he was the perfect puppy. Being on all sorts of meds made him sleepy most of the time and he liked being swaddled and held.
Now Buddy lives in Oregon and his healthy and happy. He enjoys swimming, playing, and sleeping under the covers. We think he's a beagle-lab with some boxer? We are very happy to have him in our family and I personally enjoy taking him hiking in the pacific northwest specifically the gorge and the beach. He loves people and loves his life.
