“All the while I looked on the Bowling Green rescue dog websites because Buddy was from Bowling Green, Kentucky.

I spoke to the woman from the same rescue group, and they had a 7 year old pocket Beagle that was listed under the Urgent category. He was at a kill shelter and looked like he just needed somebody.  He was skinny, really scared, and had fleas.  The rescue group said that he looked like he had been on his own for a while.

They drove him up to NYC from Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Then I saw him, and he was not what I expected.

He was full of energy and squirming around.”

“There was an event at the Petco near my apartment and Buddy was the first and only dog I met.

I felt like I could relate to him.

He seemed happy and content, like a chill little guy.  There was another woman interested but she seemed weird.

They asked me if I wanted to take him for a walk and I walked him home to my apartment.  He sniffed around, hopped on the couch and seemed at home.

I went out of the room and he followed me.  He’s always by my feet.  He’s my little shadow.

Having Buddy helped me get over a bad relationship quickly.

I feel like I am pretty fortunate, and giving Buddy a good life means a lot to me.  I know that he feels safe and loved.”

“My boyfriend was living with me and he was really against getting a dog.  He thought it was too much work.

It was something I wanted for a long time.

After he moved out, I started looking for a dog.

I got Buddy the day after my 30th birthday.  He was my birthday present to myself.

“Jack has taught me a lot about taking care of another being.

On stressful days, he’s what I look forward to when coming home.

A partner has to love him, in addition to loving me.

He’s part of the  package.”

“He loves to hike, camp, and swim.

We moved back to the city after a year and he seemed to bounce right back.

He adjusts well wherever he is.

Having Jack has made me more open to talking to strangers and making connections.

I keep in touch with friends I made in Colorado and it’s been two years since we left.”

“Jack was three to four months old when I got him.

It was an impulse decision, but it worked out because I lost my job a week after getting him home, so I got to spend quality time training him and helping him adjust to the city.

A month after he came to New York City, we moved to Colorado for a job.

He loved the mountains.”

“I found his picture through a rescue group in Tennessee called Moonshine Dog Rescue.

If you committed to buying one of their dogs, they promised transporting the dog up east.

Once I committed to adopting Jack, another rescue group called Alpha dog Transport brought him from the scout, it a tractor trailer full of dogs from different rescue groups to a designated are off route 80 in New Jersey.”

“We started the application process and filled out our first application, in which I realized Mike, my husband, and I were talking about two different dogs.  I said, it’s a 10 week old puppy in Mississippi and we’re never going to get him.  Well, two hours later they called and said, he’s yours.

I was mad because I didn’t want that dog.

I asked the woman on the phone how this happened so fast.  She said she just googled me and saw the trailer to my last movie.  She said, anyone who made that movie, has to have a heart, so we fast tracked it.

When I got off the phone with her, I said to Mike, that’s our dog.

We’ve never looked back.
