After 500 days, a dog in the United Kingdom that a vet refused to put down when the pet's owner asked is still looking for a home.
A dog that a vet refused to put down after its owner brought it in to be euthanized has been looking for a home for more than 500 days.
Buddy, a ten-year-old rescue dog, has spent the most time at the RSPCA's Brent Knoll Animal Centre in Somerset, England, despite being a affectionate chap.
Buddy's previous owner took him to the clinic to be put down because he couldn't manage the dog's tough behavior any longer, but the vet refused to put Buddy down.
According to SWNS, the cute pet has yet to be adopted because to some behavioural difficulties stemming from a less than perfect relationship with his previous owner.
RSPCA deputy manager Katy Darelli told SWNS, This beautiful youngster is an affectionate chap who tragically had a less than perfect connection with his prior owner.
After a request for euthanasia was denied by his vet, Buddy began to respond to these encounters, at which time ownership was handed to us, she added.
After four years in a shelter, 'Britain's Loneliest Dog' is still looking for a loving home.
Positive reinforcement training is being used by staff at the RSPCA shelter who are caring for Buddy to help him break free from his bad habits.
Buddy is going to need a very unique home with responsible owners who have the time and patience to help him live the happiest life possible, Darelli added.
We don't give up on these animals because, like so many others who come into our care, it might take months of care, patience, and love to get them to the point where they are ready for a new home. Everyone deserves a second opportunity, she added.
Buddy should be adopted by someone who lives in a low-stress environment with no other dogs, according to Darelli. Interested pet owners can fill out an application on the RSPCA's website
