A message, from an “elder” pit bull’s foster mom, is heartbreaking. Buddy has been with his foster mom for a year-and-a-half and she is desperate to find him the home that he not only needs…but deserves. She writes:

This is such a sad story and to think that this dog has lived his entire life without a real loving home to call his own is heartbreaking. He is an elderly pit bull that lived his entire life either on the streets or as someone’s yard dog.”

She added:

“Despite years of neglect (his entire 9+ years of life), this soul is so kind and sweet and has been given a chance at life through rescue. He desperately wants to find his human to snuggle with.”

Nobody wants to take a chance on this gentle, old soul – they are unwilling to open their heart, and their home, to an elder dog who wants nothing more than to love and be loved.

Buddy is nine years of age – a good chunk of his life has passed, but he still has love to give. His foster mom has asked that everyone take a moment to share Buddy’s story and perhaps that one special person, willing to take a chance, will be found.

Buddy’s foster mom’s plea:

“He’s crate trained, does pretty well on a leash, and wants a simple life with his person on the couch: THATS ALL HE WANTS!!! JUST LOVE AND AFFECTION, which he never had until now and so desperately seeks just one snuggle with you on the sofa. Can anyone and/or everyone please take one extra second to share this post??? I know Buddy has a human out there somewhere that wants to give him the home he never had.”

Buddy is fostered through Farm Friends Rescue – find the rescue group on Facebook here.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you have to do more than just “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”

    Buddy is older but still has many good years ahead for him. Please find it in your heart to adopt this loving and friendly dog who only wants to love people. Be one of those to him, even to foster and let him see what a home can be.
