Ho, ho, ho! A Christmas Ending for Buddy Holly

Posted in Adoptions at 7:28 am by Jenn

On December 23rd, 2009, Buddy Holly found his forever home.  We first talked about Buddy in a blog post here.  He was abandoned at the local animal shelter, starving to death as his teeth overgrew and trapped his tongue.

Well, a wonderful adopter stepped up for Buddy.  She emailed us, and told us about her two older boars, and their delicious daily salads, and how they got manicures at the vet regularly, so Buddy’s teeth could have an eye kept on them.  We were so excited!  It seemed like a perfect situation, and we held our breaths to see how the boys all got along.  Andrea, our Charlotte coordinator, reported that the boys fell in like they’d lived together forever and barely seemed to notice that their duo had become a trio.

Buddy is now living as Huckleberry in his forever home:

A huge thanks to his new mama and his new brothers.  She says they sleep together every night, and each one of the bigger, older boars seems to take turns nannying him and making sure he has a friend to sleep next to.

    Could there be any better Christmas story?

    Congrats little Buddy, no one could be more deserving! What a perfect end to this year and beginning in the next with a new family and a whole new life filled with plenty of good food and lots of LOVE! (as any pig will tell you: food is love!)

    A very special holiday is wished to all, especially to the good ACRS humans who truly make dreams come true.
