Diamonds in the Ruff

Finding loving homes for our overlooked dogs and cats 

 

This page features dogs and cats available for adoption at Buddy Dog Humane Society who - for a variety of reasons - have been waiting a little longer than most to find their forever family. Click on each photo to learn more about our Diamonds in the Ruff, and what their unique needs are. 

Buddy Dog staff are always willing to speak with potential adopters about how best to provide for an individual pets behavioral and/or medical needs in a home setting! Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions. We also recommend speaking with your veterinarian or a trainer (we can provide recommendations if you need them!) about what kind of help a new pet would potentially need.

Frankie
Arrived May 20, 2019
Adopted December 8, 2019

Sassy and bold Frankie like to switch between his "love me pet me!" mode to "back off" on a dime. He, like many felines before him, was frustrated being around so many other animals. Someone finally fell in love with his bold nature and he is now living the good life in his new home.
Acacia
Arrived June 10, 2019

Leona Vada
Arrived June 15, 2019
Adopted December 24, 2019

Little Leona was a sassy girl from the start, but shelter life stressed her out. It was hard to see her affectionate side when she was always arguing with her neighbor kitties. Someone came around who knew they had the right home for this petite girl, and she's been living happily ever after.
Coco
Arrived July 2, 2019
Adopted August 9, 2019

Duke
Arrived July 26, 2019
Adopted December 11, 2019

Duke, the honorary police dog! Duke applied for the position of office dog at a local police station, and if not for a couple allergies he would've gotten the job for sure. One of the employees there couldn't imagine her life without this bundle of joy, and convinced her family to take him in permanently!
Simona
Arrived September 17, 2019
Adopted November 17, 2019

Simona was a goofy playful girl, but very wary of humans. One day someone came to meet a different dog, but when seeing Simona fell in love.
