Forever Homes Are Dandy!
Dandy was the first dog to be adopted by Bud from BWBR.
Dandy was a senior dog at 10-years-old that still had a lot of love to give and a great life to live.
As we approach National Adopt a Senior Dog month in November, we wanted to highlight a successful adoption story. There is no better success to share than one about this young-at-heart senior dog.
Dandy had been in the shelter for 7 months before getting adopted. Even with one eye, he was able to see what the love of a family and a stable home could bring.
We recently spoke with Bud, Dandy’s forever companion. Bud shared an update on Dandy.
Dandy was the first dog to be adopted by Bud from Borders Without Boundaries Rescue (BWBR), one of our Program Partners. The thing that caught Bud’s attention was that Dandy was “very cute and thought he would fit in with us very well.” Bud described Dandy’s personality as “very gentle and loving — more passive.”
Bud described Dandy’s personality as “very gentle and loving — more passive.”
When Dandy arrived at his forever home, Bud shared that, “He jumped right into my lap, loved being petted, and played around with our other dog, Chewy. They have got along very well. They snuggle against each other all the time.” Besides lap sitting and petting, Dandy also enjoyed the outdoors and going for walks.
The Reservation Animal Rescue™ (RAR) Animal Welfare service supported seventeen Program Partners in both the Northern Plains and Southwest service areas in 2015.
Partners range from foster networks, shelters, humane societies, and rescues. BWBR has been a partner since 2010 and has been very successful in placing puppies and senior animals in their forever homes.
We were so very relieved to know Dandy was in a loving home. Bud even offered some sound advice for others considering a rescue animal. He said, “Just take time to get to know them.”
