Buddy's incredible transformation

Buddy was found on a highway. An animal lover noticed his furry, black body amidst the snow and brought the little Shih Tzu mix to Animal Humane Society. He was dangerously thin and his fur was so matted that he couldn’t see his surroundings or even wag his tail. Yet, Buddy was so sweet and affectionate with everyone he met. Our veterinary team started him on a weight gain plan, carefully removed his painful mats, and pulled several decaying teeth.

Now that he's feeling better, Buddy's like a new dog. He can move without pain, and we discovered that he loves toys, belly rubs, and cuddles.
