A nine-year-old friendly Chow Chow and Golden retriever mix named Buffy ended up at the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control on February 27, 2016 because his owner kept tripping over him.
“He was surrendered because his owner didn’t want him anymore and kept tripping over him,” read the sad introduction to Buffy’s tragic plight on Facebook for MCACC East Dogs, a social media page used to promote the rescue and adoption of shelter pets.
What does that mean when a dog’s owner “kept tripping over their dog”? Buffy has some trouble getting around and could use to lose some weight; the ideal home would be one to provide a healthy diet and low intensity exercise. Who wouldn’t enjoy a walk in the park with their new best friend? Buffy is already neutered and ready to go. Volunteers, who have met him, describe him as a “sweet old man” although Buffy does not get along with cats. On Tuesday, more soft blankets had been placed in his kennel cage because he was afraid of his kuranda bed.
