From time to time I'd like to spotlight adoptable animals on the blog. Our first entry is Buckley, who is a happy 10-week old puppy that shares a striking resemblance to my own mystery mutt, Daisy.
But first, a little background: My husband and I adopted our dog, Daisy, when she was 7ish months old. She was a stray in SC, picked up by the municipal pound. Lucky for her she was plucked from there by the Northeast Animal Shelter and transported to Salem, MA. We just happened to be visiting the day she came out of quarantine. It was clearly fate that so many things aligned for us to take her home that day. So many animals have these "mystery" backgrounds, which makes them all the more lovable.
Buckley was found as a stray in TN younger than 8 weeks, with no siblings or parents. Must be fate again, because after having three potential families back out (through not fault of Buckley's) I'm making it my mission to find this guy the BEST home out there. He deserves it. He's already been through a lot in his little life.
Here is Buckley's Petfinder profile through Great Dog Rescue New England. I've been working with his foster mom in TN and have learned that she calls him "teapot" because he's short and stout. He's built like a tank and loves to play, eat, sniff and play some more. LOOK AT THAT FACE! (It's exactly what I pictured Daisy as when she was that age.) He is likely basset hound (maybe beagle or other hound?) and probably some golden/lab/or shepherd mix. I obviously have no idea if he'll look like Daisy when fully grown, but we do know he has the traditional triangular lab ears, golden fur and short legs.
Buckley is currently located in TN but may be traveling to Mass by mid-next week. I'd love to have a home waiting for him when he gets here! If not, he will be snatched up immediately as soon as someone sees that face. All dogs are special, but this little guy has something extra. I can feel it, just as a I did when I saw Daisy. Let's find an extra special home for this extra special guy! If you'd like to adopt Buckley there is an application like on his PetFinder profile
