This is Buddy. As best we can tell, he is a brindle and black maybe bulldog and staffordshire terrier mix. We knew he was a special guy, but were truly touched by this story, relayed to one of our volunteers by the Animal Control Officer who brought him to the shelter: "Buddy was very attached to his owner who was in poor health. The owner got sicker and was losing weight and so was Buddy. When Buddy's owner passed away in the back yard, Buddy stayed with and stood guard with the man until someone came for both of them." Unfortunately, no one in his family was able to take Buddy so he wound up at the shelter where he quickly became a volunteer favorite. Come meet this sweet and loyal prince!
