Your Pet's Adoption Story
Hi, My name is Buddy, Buddy McGonagle. Yes I am a dog but I am pretty smart and have a lot to say about things going on in my life and my people's lives.

As you can tell from the picture I have a slight handicap. But it's really an advantage. Everybody who sees me wants to be my friend. And I just love it.

It all started in Alabama. I was a stray as a very young puppy. Spending my days looking for food and hoping that someday I would have a home.

Then one day I was in a terrible accident. I'm not sure what really happened, could have been a fight (is that why I don't like cats) or maybe I was hit by a car. But in any case my leg was broken up very badly.

I was rescued by the local animal shelter, they tried to fix my leg but it couldn't be saved. Lucky for me it was a shelter that sent stray dogs to New Hampshire. At the Nashua Humane Society I waited for weeks. People came in, they took the dogs with 4 legs but that was OK.

I had a warm place to sleep. Dogs to play with and the people at the Humane Society really loved me. It was almost like a home but I knew it wasn't.

Then one day in early January of 2008 Elaine came into the Humane Society. She had seen my picture in the paper and wanted to meet me. We had a great time, she took me for a walk, petted me and hugged me a lot. But the next day she came back with her whole family. I really liked everyone, Kyle, Abby, Ryan, Erin, Meaghan, Jon, Mike and Lauren are all really nice to me. But my favorite is Chuck. He tries to pretend that he doesn't like me sometimes but I know her really does.

We are best friends. I do my best to take care of him. I make sure he goes for a walk everyday. On Saturdays I make sure that he gets gas in the car and I help with errands around town.

Best of all Chuck, Elaine and everyone are my family and I have found my home. So this is my page. I will keep you all posted on what is going on with my family. I love friends so let me know if you want to be friends with me.
