Buddy Howard

Please keep alumnus Buddy Howard’s family in your thoughts and prayers… he’s earned his angel wings. 😢

His momma writes: We had to say goodbye to our sweet, beautiful Buddy Howard yesterday. He started acting poorly Thursday, and after visiting the vet, a mass was found in his abdomen. Early yesterday morning, things began to take a turn for the worst, and we knew that we could not let him endure any more pain. He was snuggled up in my arms the entire drive to the vet, and when the time came, he went softly and gently. He was such a wonderful, funny, and sweet dog. Our hearts are very heavy, but we know doing this for him was the last thing we could do for him as good parents. It was the last type of love and kindness we could give him. The minute we saw we could not keep him pain-free, the decision was made. It’s so sad today. Our other Bully is looking for him around the house. He was my husbands first dog “of his own,” and he’s having such a hard time with the loss. But, with great joy, comes great sorrow, and I wouldn’t change 1 moment of our 6 years with our sweet boy. Thank you Lone star for choosing us to be his furever family! He wasn’t perfect, but he was perfect for us. RIP Buddy.

Howdy folks, my name is Buddy Howard and I arrived in rescue when my previous owner decided to do the right thing and get me the help I needed and he couldn’t afford to give. You see, even though I am only 2 ½ years old, I have had so many recurrent ear infections that one of my ears canals had to be removed and the other is overgrown with scar tissue to the point that I am basically deaf. But, don’t get me wrong, I can hear enough to know when my bowl is being filled with food (or maybe that’s just the vibration of my foster brothers thundering into the kitchen!)! I like it here in my foster home and get along great with my foster brothers and sisters, both dogs and cats. I even like Coco the Chihuahua! Foster mom tells me that in her case sometimes it helps to not hear so well! I get lots of good food and warm baths here which is great as I was very underweight and had something called a yeast infection on my neck, tummy and feet. After I get rid of those itchy infections and gain some weight, the nice doc in Frisco is going to neuter me and then my foster parents tell me I will be ready to start looking for my furever home! I think I like having brothers and sisters (and even cats). It’s nice to not be alone! I love to be scratched and kissed and each day as I grow more comfortable I show foster parents more of my personality. I can even sit and shake (for treats of course)! I am told that I am very handsome and smart and my new furever parents will be the luckiest bully parents in the world! How can I argue with that? Ask for me, Buddy Howard, and I’ll be ready for you soon!  I’ll have all my vaccination and be on a heartworm preventative whey you get me too.  My adoption fee is $550.
