Dog Story: Buddy here! Boy has my life changed in the past two months since ABR became my best friend! I just turned 8 years old in July, but you would never know it because of how happy I am when I play with my Britt foster sisters. You see, I had a rough start to life. I was raised at a hunting plantation in Tennessee and lived outside on a chain. When I was 5, some really nice people came for me and took me to their home in north Georgia. I was still living outside, but with so much more running room! I really liked playing with their human kids and other Brittanys. One day my family moved, and my yard got much smaller. They were working more and instantly knew that it wasn’t fair for me. They took me to the vet and got me ready to send to ABR. GUYS! THEY EVEN TOOK PICTURES OF MY INSIDES! That’s when they discovered something called hip dysplasia and reached out to ABR. When I arrived at this new foster home, there were two other dogs that looked just like me! This. Is. AWESOME! But my new mom took me back to the doctor. That’s where they discovered that my left hip was completely dislocated. Four days later, I had surgery. It’s called an FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) and helped my hip get back in good shape so I can run and romp like all Britts should. The doctors and my new foster mom couldn’t believe I was up and walking the same day of surgery! It’s been really nice living inside with my two foster sisters. But don’t get me wrong, I still love being outside going on adventures, and I love to swim! I could really use aBrittany Buddyto help with my vet bills. We all know surgery can cost so much, and ABR has been so good to me.So would you be myBrittany Buddy Now that my hip is fixed up I’m looking for a forever family too, so if you might like to meet me and see me smile and swim in person, contact my foster folks! Buddy was an owner surrender to ABR when his family moved. He has done wonderfully thriving in ABR foster care and his surgery was very successful repairing his hip joint for a quick recovery. Buddy is an awesome companion and enjoys everything in life.
