BUSTERS STORY:

 

Jan, 29, 2010:  BUSTER IS AROUND 9 YEARS OLD. HE WAS A PUPPY WHEN RENE MOVED TO THE AREA. IT APPEARS THAT BUSTER WAS ABANDONED AT THE HOUSE AS A PUPPY, BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER. THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD BUSTER FOR THE LAST 9 YEARS, ARE NOT ABLE TO LIVE AT THE HOUSE DUE TO STRUCTURAL CONCERNS, SO THEY LEFT AROUND SUMMERTIME, AND LEFT BUSTER BEHIND (AGAIN!).


HE HAS LIVED OUTSIDE HIS WHOLE LIFE. ALL THE OTHER NEIGHBORHOOD DOGS FLOCK TO HIM. HE IS ALSO WONDERFUL WITH CHILDREN AND CATS. HIS EYES LIGHT UP WHEN PEOPLE ARE NEAR, BUT IS VERY LONELY WHEN THEY ARE NOT.
RENE SPOKE WITH THE GUY, WHO AGREED THAT BUSTER COULD GO INTO A RESCUE GROUP OR ADOPTED TO AN APPROPRIATE FAMILY. SHE FEELS THAT HE WOULD PREFER TO BE AN OUTSIDE DOG, AND IDEALLY, HE WOULD BE GREAT ON A FARM SOMEWHERE. THE GUY STOPS BY ON OCCASION, TO FEED BUSTER THE FOOD THAT RENE PROVIDED HIM WITH.

 

PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING BUSTER, SO THAT HE CAN LIVE THE REST OF HIS SENIOR YEARS WITH A FULFILLED HEART!!!!

 

SAD NEWS TODAY FROM RENE-

2/2/2011:  It with GREAT saddness, I must tell you that Buster had to be euthanized this morning...I am so sorry but I just cannot get through a phone call right now... This morning he was acting very very sad - didn't finish his food..kept walking away and sitting down..I just knew something was wrong, even if it was that he was depressed. So I went home, got ready, called a local kennel - having plans of taking him after his check up, at least he would not be alone. Buster was sitting in front of the house when I got back (he has never done that, almost like he was waiting..) he put his head up so that I could slip a collar on him and gave me no problems putting him in the Jeep..he road perfectly calm to the clinic...inside he was just awesome..hanging close to me but not very scared at all. He had advanced heartworms...very advanced and a possible abdominal mass. My vet strongly advised euth. as he might not make it through treatment, and I could not turn him over for someone to have to finacially cover this or have to make this horrible choice. I truly believe that Buster knew... At least he did not have to die alone. My heart ...is broken..Thank you both for trying so hard to help Buster. He was an incredibly tough, kind boy.
