- Hi all, I’m Buddy! If you c’mon over here and scratch behind my ear, I’ll tell you a story. It’s got a sad part of it but don’t worry, it will have a happy ending! I’m a 4.5 year old Golden Retriever mix. Since I was a puppy, I lived with a nice lady in Kenosha who loved me, but didn’t socialize me. Recently, she passed away and I lived alone in the house for 3 weeks. The nice neighbor lady came by and fed me and let me outside twice but it was scary living alone for so long! The person cleaning my mom’s house said I needed to find a home or I would go to the shelter.
Fortunately, just in time, a nice lady saw my picture and my story on something called the Facebook and she said she’d take me in until I found a home. As scared as I was to meet those new people, I was so happy to be headed to freedom! My new foster ma and pa spent a lot of time loving me and I learned I could trust them! They spent hours slowly introducing me to my doggy foster brothers. Because I don’t have much experience with other doggies, through lots of training and slowly introducing us (and lots of treats), I began to realize that these doggie dudes were actually okay and they weren’t going to eat me.
My foster ma said that I’m to the point of being a normal dog for day to day activities and that makes me really happy. Last week, I even got to go to the pet store to get microchipped! As we were checking out, I met a few new people and dogs. The one lady was super loud, but I was calm the entire time! I even ran into a Rottweiler/Mastiff mix and with the comfort of my foster pa, I didn’t get scared! They said I’ve made so much progress in the last three weeks. But now I’m on a new journey.. a journey to find my forever home and family. I even got all dressed up to take some pictures to show the world how handsome, sweet, and playful I am. Check them out here. I’m hoping to find someone who likes cuddling on the couch just as much as I do and will keep helping me learn new places in the outside world. Speaking of… you’re scratching behind my ear just right, could my new home be with you?
