Rescue dogs and their stories
Here are more rescue dogs from Capital and Hudson Valley pet owners and their stories.
From Joe LaLumia of Hudson: Buddy was adopted by the Berkshire Humane Society in September 2007. He had been there for many months. He was found on the streets of Pittsfield with two broken legs and after he was healed many people wanted him but none took him home. Our old furry companion had passed away in July, and I had been to shelters and rescues looking for a new companion. I couldn’t find the right one. One day the phone rang, it was our vet. “Go to the Pittsfield shelter, Mary (his wife) found your dog for you.” I said, “I don’t know, I looked and looked and didn’t find the right one.” His answer. “Shut up, get in the car and go get the dog.” He was right, we took him home forever three days later. I’ve never regretted it for a second.
