RAWL Dogs: Buddy


If I am outside when you drive up to the shelter here in Amissville, you will hear me. My bass voice – rather musical, if I may say so – will ring out as you approach. In truth, it makes me sound bigger than I really am. This sound of greeting, or warning, will go well at your place, especially at night, should intruders on four feet or two feet venture near.

My name is Buddy. There’s Shepherd and Great Dane in my DNA. I’m only a year and a half old, and in my short time here I’ve learned what a leash is for, and how we use it together.

This past week, no dogs were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League is located in Amissville at 160 Weaver Road. It can be reached seven days a week between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. at 540-937-3283. Check out the Web site at www.rawldogs.org.
