Our big handsome boy blind Buddy was adopted today by Susan S. from Missoula. Susan had come out on Monday to meet Buddy for the first time and introduce him to her other dog, a very small girl named Dalai. Susan decided Buddy was just perfect, and Dalai seemed to think Buddy was just her type. So Susan came back today to pick him up and take him home.
She emailed this evening to say all was well and Buddy was adjusting just fine. Susan wrote, "Dalai was thrilled to see him. Much tail wagging. She wanted to play immediately but he wasn't ready for that yet." (He was never one to rush romance.)
Susan added, "He LOVES his new crate. After he explored the yard a bit I showed him where his crate was and he already knows exactly where it is. When I gave him a biscuit he took it right in the crate to eat. He also likes his new hedgehog toy and tennis ball -- he's played with the ball a bit but always takes it back in his crate."
I took the photo this afternoon of Susan with Buddy, just before they left for Missoula. Thank you, Susan, for adopting this wonderful boy!
