NFW Happy Tails: During the week of November 15, 2010, Buddy (previously Suede) was featured as the Cleveland Neighborhood Friend of the Week. Now Buddy has made a new friend: his forever guardian, Carol.
Carol and Buddy’s tale began after two of her four dogs passed away. After this, her Shepherd/Husky mix went into depression, and Carol decided to look for a new animal companion. She contacted PAWS because she had helped foster some of their dogs in the past. She and her husband saw Suede’s picture, and they fell in love with him the second Suede dove on top of Carol’s husband.
Suede’s life has now been changed for the better. He even has a new name: Buddy. Buddy was named such because he needed to fill many hearts and every member of his new family needed a buddy. Buddy loves to cuddle and always finds someone’s arms. Carol says, “[Buddy] will dive on you and bury his head into you thinking like he’s a 3 lb Chihuahua (although he is really a 75 lb Mastiff mix).”
Buddy has definitely found the perfect family. He is super friendly and loving, and now he has a family to share these traits with. Carol is very happy and considers herself lucky to have Buddy in her life. When asked why other people should adopt, she said, “Rescue animals know you are rescuing them. They are incredibly grateful and appreciative for their second chance.”
We hope this story inspires you to consider adopting a loving animal companion of your own. If you have a special Happy Tail of a pet featured on the NFW that you would like to share with the followers of the Neighborhood Friend of the Week, please email us at email@example.com.
