Some of you may have followed Buddy’s journey or donated to his appeal, thank you for that.
Buddy was involved in a road traffic accident which left him in a horrendous state and resulted in an amputation of his left hind leg.
Fortunately Buddy was brought to Drumahoe vets in Derry where he received fantastic care.
No owner came forward for Buddy so he was treated as a stray and after a time in the dog pound he eventually made his way to our sanctuary. Here we have continued his treatment and care.
Buddy obviously was quite frightened of traffic, flinching in fear at every passing car in the distance. Fortunately Buddy seems to be getting over this fear very quickly and we now have him walking quite happily close to traffic.
What can we say about Buddy, his fantastic nature and character has stolen each and every heart of the team in the sanctuary. We all adore him and he’s so smart that he is training us, not the other way round.
With Buddy’s wounds still healing we will have a short term arrangement with his adopter where we cover the care of his wounds until they are fully healed- we are almost there with this so perhaps another month or so will see an end to this treatment.
Any adopter will need to be able to attend our vets in Antrim.
Some breed experience will be beneficial to your application but we will add that Buddy may not be that typical of his breed type, seeming much more laid back than the average Mali type.
Buddy could live with children aged 8 + Years who have a sensible approach to dogs.
Buddy may be able to live with another calm dog pending successful meet and greets.
We say calm as need to allow his wounds to continue to heal.
