Sweet little Madison was beside herself after her dog Buddy got loose from the backyard. After searching, posting flyers, and checking with animal control and local rescues produced no trace of Buddy, mom Laura Wallace helped Madison make a lost dog video post to share on Facebook.
Over 11 million views later, a good Samaritan found Buddy thanks to the tearful message.
Buddy is a rescued pit bull mix with “brownness right by his eyes and ears” Madison told Fox 8 News. Her dad, Matt, originally found the dog wandering the streets starving and hurt. When they couldn’t find the dog’s original family, they kept him, deciding that Buddy had chosen them.
The family is all smiles now— especially Buddy!
We hope Buddy learned an important lesson about leaving the yard and makes wiser decisions from now on.
