We'd like to introduce you to this very special guy named Buddy! Buddy came to the Shelter in March in need of help. He was in severe pain from an old, untreated injury and he feared everything, from people to other dogs.
Unfortunately, When the 5-year-old Saint Bernard mix was younger, he was hit by a car that severely damaged one of his front legs and elbows. And after receiving improper medical treatment after his accident, Buddy suffered through many years of painful arthritis in his front right leg.
After his arrival at Foothills Animal Shelter, the Veterinary Services team was able to successfully amputate his leg and permanently alleviate his pain. He spent many weeks being fostered by Shelter staff and volunteers as he recovered from his operation and worked on his confidence around other people and pups.
And after after six weeks of care and rehabilitation, Buddy was finally ready to find a forever home - and lucky for him it didn't take long!
Buddy was scooped up almost immediately by his new mom, who says that Buddy has become a "new" dog who loves to go on walks and greet new people while happily wagging his tail!
In the end, he found a loving and patient home; and Buddy is now thriving, happy and healthy, and free from his pain and we couldn't be happier! We're so proud of Buddy and so thrilled that he found an incredible forever home! Go Buddy!
