My best friend Sweetie walked 10km to find me.


Sweetie & Buddy were found by Tina 3 years ago, living on the streets of Phuket, Thailand.  Buddy was seemingly healthy that day, but Sweetie suffered from a severe case of mange.
Tina brought Sweetie to the temple for some much needed treatment for her mange, but left Buddy where he was because he did not require treatment. Well, Sweetie did not like being away from her best mate that night, so she escaped and walked the 10km back to find him… on a busy main road!
Tina looked everywhere the next day, and lo-and-behold she found her back in her original spot, with Buddy. So, we brought Buddy to Bodhi, along with Sweetie, and she no longer escaped. It doesn’t get much sweeter than that!!
Buddy is a most handsome dog who boasts a very balanced demeanor. He is the perfect mix of playful, relaxed & oh so loving. Buddy is a natural pack leader & guardian and would fit right into a family environment. He has peacefully lived amonst 100+ other dogs for years, they all seem to look up to him.
Buddy is looking for a home with or without older children, and with at least one other dog. He doesn’t get to go on many walks at the shelter, so would love for his person to take him out on a special walk everyday.
There really is nothing more fulfilling than providing a homeless senior dog with a loving retirement home for the rest of their days. Buddy is a dog who is so deserving of a forever home, and has been waiting his whole life. He is one of the kindest & most patient dogs we know.
