Buddy went on an adventure! – he was found as a stray, and taken to a shelter. Luckily, this awesome shelter partners with Old Dog Haven to keep old dogs safe. Buddy found his way into ODH’s amazing forever foster home program where ODH makes sure he gets all the vet care he needs. And, his foster home provides lots of love and care.
Buddy arrived at his foster home lethargic, with weak legs, and an ear and skin infection. Due to Old Dog Haven’s excellent vet care checklist, it was found that he had a tick-borne disease which was treated and is now being monitored. Lab tests also identified that he has a progressing liver disease. Through medical management the goal is to slow the liver disease so he can continue to feel better.
He’s getting stronger every day and started playing with toys; even at his old age! Everyone that meets Buddy falls in love with him. He greets everyone like he’s known them forever, and has a gentle soul. Buddy also loves to be hugged and is always on alert for the sun to shine. You can often find him napping on lots of blankets (which he loves), and he of course needs a kiss on his forehead and blanket tuck at bedtime.
His foster home could not be more in love with him and is grateful every day for ODH!!
