Here at See Spot Rescued we are truly overjoyed each time one of our furries finds their forever home. But this dog in particular has touched so many lives on his journey to finding his loving home that it has also served as a humble reminder how much time, effort, love, and devotion goes into getting each pup to where they need to be. This is why we rescue. Read below to see how Bud became Drew Carey, who finally because Orion.
Bud’s Story: Bud had spent the last 3 years living in a dirty backyard. He had never been able to sleep inside on a cozy bed in the dead of winter or been relieved of flies & fleas biting him in the hot summer. Fortunately he did get love from a concerned next-door neighbor who looked out for him and gave him treats. On April 1st Bud’s owner was evicted from his house and left Bud in the backyard with 2 empty bowls. He never came back for him. Bud was picked up by DeKalb Animal Control on April 4th. Money was raised (see Save Bud) on Bud’s behalf and Friends of DeKalb Animals was able to set See Spot Rescued up with him and arrange a transport up north! First, he was neutered and treated for heart worm and spent some weeks recovering and relaxing in a loving foster home down south.
Bud stepped foot into New Jersey as celebrity Drew Carey on July 13th. He adapted well and enjoyed the parks and living in another loving foster. He attended adoption events and romped with new friends and finally met his human matches at our adoption event at Canine Canteen! Less than a week later, Drew Carey/Bud will forever be known as ORION, and is off to an amazing (indoor, bug free) life in Bayonne, NJ with four feline siblings!
CONGRATULATIONS ORION! You deserve only the best. Looks like you’re already enjoying your new dog bed. :)
