Staffers at the shelter decided to name the puppy Buddy. The tiny dog was only 6 weeks old at the time, and despite his shaky start to life, he was completely healthy. Everyone quickly fell in love with Buddy, and cuddled him and kept him safe before he was old enough to go off and find his forever family.
“Buddy is a really bright puppy who loves attention from people and his confidence around other dogs is growing everyday,” Sarah Copleston, communications officer for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, told The Dodo. “Buddy loves nothing more than being made a fuss of and chasing a tennis ball. With all of the excitement of being a puppy, he is fast asleep by 9 p.m. each evening.”
