My name is Bud.  I’m a Chow/Shepherd mix youngster, about three years old and 50 lb.  Not long ago, something drove me into the street with a badly injured back leg.  In too much pain to walk anymore, I chose a doorstep to take a short rest – but I couldn’t get back up!  That’s where two curious cats found me, and that’s where my life changed forever.  The cats and doorstep belonged to a wonderful couple who didn’t yell or chase me away, but carefully carried me into their back yard and gave me food and water.

Even though they were so kind, I was scared!  But I was too worn out to run away – so I crept behind their trash can and slept for hours.  When I woke up, they took me to the vet.  I can’t tell anyone what I went through, but the vet read the signs:  I was kept on concrete, neglected, and probably abused.  Another dog attacked me and hurt my leg.  And I’m heartworm positive.

Foster Dad and Mom made sure my leg got treated, and generous people donated funds to get me neutered and heartworm free for my Forever Family. 

Meanwhile, I’m learning so much!  Foster Dad says I’m really smart.  Though completely untrained when I was found, one month later I “sit” with just a hand gesture – and, simply tap the top of my kennel, and I’m inside!  One thing I’m still working on: Bark control!  I take my duties as a guard dog very, very seriously.  I won’t let anyone hurt my dear friends!

LOVE is the most important lesson I’ve learned. Kindness opened my heart, and trust, loyalty, and happiness flower there day by day.  I’m ready for a bright future with people who truly love me!  Are you the one I was searching for?

Thank you for considering adopting a new family member. Most of our adoptable dogs live inside foster homes.  Fostering teaches house manners, helps to potty/crate train and accustoms the dogs become familiar with the sights, sounds of living in a home environment.

About Dogs 2nd Chance - Munford

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs 2nd Chance is a 501[c]3 non-profit dog foster group that was founded in the fall of 2007. We are a group of VOLUNTEERS that saw the need to help medium and large mixed breed dogs find permanent loving homes. We have evolved to help any size dogs. We are NOT a shelter. We receive no government funding and depend on our minimal adoption fees, donations and our own bank accounts.

All of our dogs are fostered in our homes and become a temporary active member of our family. Fostering helps to socialize the dogs, helping them adjust to life in a family setting. The majority of our dogs were abandoned, dumped or found running stray. We attempt to reunite lost dogs with their owners by placing ads in local newspapers and online classified ads. Additionally, we rescue dogs from high kill shelters as space allows. We are caring for the castaways by saving one dog at a time.
