Hero Dog Awards - Buddy


Clyde, Texas

Buddy is just that, everybody’s buddy.
We adopted from Houston K-911 almost a year ago and he has brought so much joy to our family. He was found by some dumpsters with a trash bag around his neck and he had been beaten so bad that he had over 120 skull fractures, broken teeth and lost a eye. Buddy does not allow his past to define him. He welcomes every single person that comes into our home with open paws and without judgment or hesitation. He loves everyone equally and loves without fear. We are members of a program called Abilene Home Away From Home, an affiliation with Dyess Air Force Base, and we welcome young airmen on their first assignment into our home. Buddy is a vital part of this program as you can see the stress just melt off of these young men and women as Buddy snuggles close to them.
We could all learn a lot from his sweet soul and for all that he has overcome, he undoubtedly deserves to be the Hero Shelter Dog.
