After Laura Sissoko moved into her new woodworking shop near Atlanta, Georgia, two years ago, she’d often spot a black dog wandering on the outskirts of the property. He never let her approach him, but after a few visits, she started leaving food out for him — which he’d happily gobble up once she’d go back inside.
She nicknamed her new friend “Buddy.”
“I had my dog at the shop with me most days, so Buddy always kept his distance,” Sissoko told The Dodo. “He was shy, but curious. He’d watch us but not approach at all.”
