Buddy from Shrewsbury (Shropshire)

This is Buddy. We found him at The Dogs Trust in Telford 3 months ago. He was given up by his owners at 16 weeks old and left there for 10 months before we rescued him. Buddy is a complete mix breed ( we think Lab x German Shepard). The only way to describe him is 'bull in a china shop'. He is very excitable and had quite a few behavioural niggles that only social human interaction could change. Here he is now 3 months later a loving family member, winning 'Best mix breed' and 'Reserve best in show' against dogs who had been hand reared from pups. We are so proud of his achievements in such a short space of time and cannot wait to see what else this dog can accomplish . It only goes to show he may of been down but certainly wasn't out!
