Buddy’s story is nothing less than a miracle!
I rescued him from a California desert and he was severely emaciated and full of dust!
He somehow survived out there for close to two months eating grass or bugs or whatever he could find!
He had been hit by a car leaving his front leg badly broken and his hips out of alignment. I also noticed his lip was bleeding. After a 9 hour drive to bring him home, I took him to the emergency vet where they discovered he had eaten rat poisoning and would most likely not make the night. I was devastated at the news, but at four in the morning I received a call from the vet saying Buddy was possibly going to make it!
His young age played a huge part in that outcome. So I nursed him for four months setting up an X pen with all of his needs and sleeping on the couch during that time to take care of him. The vet was shocked to see his X-rays and his great condition. He was a healthy, happy boy each time we saw her, which was frequently. It was a long four months nursing him back to health but I didn’t want him to lose his leg! Buddy decided at this point he was home and I was his Mom!
He has been a healthy, happy boy ever since, and I discovered what a great dog I had just rescued, so smart, such a fast runner, so happy, and absolutely beautiful!!! He is such a devoted, loving companion and a total miracle!
Buddy loves to swim, shake soft toys, fetch sticks, chase squirrels, and is a natural at learning agility.
He truly is my miracle baby boy!!!
