Toad's Fountain of Youth Fund

Meet Toad!

  His real name is Arthur but the nickname Toad was given to him by his foster mom and well, it just kind of stuck.  Arthur was one of those stories that makes you wonder how someone could dump a senior dog.  He was found chained up to a tree on a deserted logging road. If a kind woman had not happened to be hiking there, he likely would have starved to death.  Instead, he wound up at the Duncan SPCA and then came to Bully Buddies.  He was in poor shape  he hadn't eaten much and was very skinny, his coat was terrible, and arthritis was plaguing his spine and legs.  However, like a typical bull breed, his spirits were anything but down and out - he LOVED life!

Well, fast forward a year, and Arthur the Toad is at a healthy weight, looks great, and, best of all, is no longer affected by arthritis!   He runs around like the young stallion he truly believes himself to be! He has an amazing and committed family who adore his silly antics.  His mom, Cheryl, volunteers with Bully Buddies. Cheryl's employer, Coast Capital Savings, generously matches their employees volunteer hours with a financial donation!  Hence the foundation of Toad's Fountain of Youth Fund. Every senior Pit Bull deserves to find a home as stellar as Arthur the Toad's! ♥

 

 

Why Adopt a Senior?

1. Older dogs are house-trained. You won't have to go through the difficult stages of teaching a puppy house manners and mopping/cleaning up after accidents.

2. Older dogs are not teething puppies. Therefore, they won't chew your shoes and furniture.

3. Older dogs can focus well because they've mellowed. Therefore, they can learn quite quickly!

4. Older dogs have learned the command "no". If they hadn't learned it, they wouldn't have gotten to be "older" dogs.

5. Older dogs settle in easily. They've learned what it takes to get along with others and become part of a pack.

6. Older dogs are great at giving love. Older dogs are often very grateful for the second chance they've been given and adopt their human companions as much as their human companions adopted them.

7. What You See Is What You Get! Unlike puppies, older dogs have grown into their shape and personality. Puppies can grow up to be quite different from what they seemed at first.

8. Older dogs are instant companions! They often come ready for adventures like hiking, car trips, and other things you like to do.

9. Older dogs leave you time for yourself. They don't make the same kinds of demands on your time and attention that puppies and young dogs do.

10. Older dogs let you get a good night's sleep. They're already accustomed to human schedules and don't generally need nighttime feedings, comforting, or bathroom breaks.

Who Your Donations Help

Chester

Chester is a wonderful older gentleman who came to Bully Buddies with a skin condition and a badly infected post-neuter site that required further surgery.  Thankfully he has now healed up well thanks to the wonderful care of his foster family and is ready for a permanent home of his very own.
