Here is Buddie's story, in the words of his rescuer:
"Buddie was an owner surrender & they shared he had partial paralysis in his face but it didn't intefere with daily living. Vet records obtained- only sent 2 pages with updates on all shots day before transfer.
"He was overweight and dropped 9 lbs before first vet visit 4/22/15 Buddie had sunken head, difficulty in eating,drinking water & initial diagnosis with vet was Masticatory Muscle Myositis vs. stroke-like event.
"All Buddie wants is to be loved and he quickly bonded with his foster mom and followed her everywhere. He ignored 15 month old lab pup owned by roommate. NEVER any aggression whatsoever.
"Buddie is solid, steadfast and true. He has known more love in three months than he has experienced in a lifetime. Foster's mom has helped with his daily care & he has visited the beach & adores swimming, chasing fiddler crabs & has seen the world thru pink colored glasses despite his handicap and messy eating habits. Puts entire snout in water & difficulty in eating kibble."
Buddie developed extreme pain and lameness in one front leg, and went to the North Carolina vet school to see if they could determine what was wrong. Sadly, the most likely diagnosis is a brain tumor.
CorgiAid supporters have helped Buddie with his care and diagnosis. Thank you.
He is such a sweetheart that everyone loves him, in spite of his difficulties. Despite his diagnosis, he touched the heart of a wonderful couple who have adopted him. He will be loved and cherished as long as he continues to enjoy life.
