A dog named “Buddy,” is waiting at the Hempstead Town Animal Shelter (Wantagh, New York) for a person who isn’t ever going to arrive…the two-and-a-half-year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix looks longingly from behind the bars of his kennel run for any sign of a familiar face, but each day, he fails to find what he so desperately wants to see.
On the Facebook page which was created to help find Buddy a home, information was shared about the sad dog:
Every day Buddy looks to see if anyone is coming for him. It’s heartbreaking to see a loving dog without a person or family to love. 💔 Still a youngster at 2 1/2 years old, Buddy craves affection and a good game of fetch.
Buddy is a big boy with lots of energy so would do best with an active experienced owner.
