It may be too soon but I rescued anyway... meet Buddy!

Recommended Posts

Oscar passed away less than a month ago, and left a huge hole in our hearts.  It may have not been the wisest idea, but when this little guy came up in the Facebook feed of a local rescue, I had to go meet him.  And he has come home with us.  So far so good.  Meet Buddy!  Two and a quarter years old, was taken on by the rescue as a rehabilitation job because he was about to be put down for being too hyper. He is a much more petite boy than my others, but more than holds his own.  He has settled in well and lifted all of our spirits.

Technically he is currently on trial, but, well, yeah.

Given that Buddy seems to have just discovered the joys of shoes as chew toys, I would say he is getting quite comfortable!

The first night he jumped on the bed and fell asleep lying on top of me.  I think I am a goner, and he is a keeper.

OK, from the description, it sounds like you're suckered. Join the club. My most recent was officially scheduled for euthanasia more than once and the Fates swept in at the last possible minute and somehow I got caught up in their schemes and here we are; best dog I have ever had.

Oh lord, look at him! What a heartbreaker. The pic of him giving paw with that big grin is too much! I agree, no such thing as too soon -- if you're ready, you're ready. Or if you're suckered ;)

What a doll - that third pic does show a bit of the devil in him, though - you are going to have FUN with Buddy!!  Congratulations and I hope he starts to fill the void left by your dear Oscar.  Keep us posted!!

Congrats. In my opinion, a new dog is the best medicine for the loss of a dog, when you are able to do it.

Congratulations! He is a cutie.

As far as the timing, never too soon IMHO. The day I had to say goodby to my epileptic girl (she would have between 9-13 grand mal seizures within a 24 hour period every 3-4weeks), I woke up at 3 am and hopped on the web to start looking at rescue sites and for sale sites. Part of the healing process.

He is beautiful, and I love him. Congratulations to you both -and I echo GVC's sentiment. It's never too soon.

Two months after we lost 15 yo Bob, we adopted Levi.  We weren't looking or expecting to adopt that soon, but Levi was perfect for us.  Totally unlike Bob, and that was a good thing!  We also have a Buddy, now 9.5 yo.  Your Buddy is so cute, I hope he brings you as much happiness as ours did.
