Meet Buster’s Buddies

House with a Heart established the Buster’s Buddies program to help other Rescue Groups by providing a home for dogs who are waiting for their forever home or a Forever Foster.  These dogs are not HWAH residents — they still belong to the original Rescue Group.  They are given the same love and care as the HWAH residents while staying with one of our Forever Foster Angels

Bear – Bear was left behind when his owner could no longer care for him. He arrived at HWAH with toenails so long that it hurt him to walk. He needed to be neutered, have a good teeth cleaning and a tumor removed. Bear has come through all of his medical challenges with flying colors and is now living with one of our HWAH Angels, Lori. Bear is joining Lori and her husband John and their other rescue senior pup, Poppy.  Lori is truly practicing Love Lives Here!!!!

Poppy – When Poppy arrived at HWAH she was suffering terribly with skin allergies.  Much of her hair was missing and her teeth were a mess.  Poppy’s Mom had not been able to care for her as she herself had to go into a nursing home, and her family reached out to us. The moment we met this girl, we fell in love. She is ADORABLE! Her personality is LOVEBUG.  Poppy is a Forever Foster with Lori and John and their other HWAH Forever Foster pup, Bear.

Gidget – Gidget is a sweet senior Lhasa Apso that we are Forever Fostering through our Buster’s Buddies program for the Senior Dog Sanctuary of MD.  Gidget is living the good life with Mark and Nancy, one of our Premier Foster homes.  Nancy keeps us laughing with stories about Gidger and all of their other Foster charges.

Raini – is a 14 year old Yorkie who came to HWAH through the Buster’s Buddies program. Raini had been living with an elderly lady who passed away, and was then returned to his original owner who could not care for him because of her busy life. Raini had a severely damaged heart and his prognosis was extremely poor. But now, thanks for his forever foster angel, Cindy, he has a whole new life:. “ Raini loves to go for walks, he prances along until he comes across something he needs to smell and mark. He knows when it’s almost dinner time. He heads right for the car, enough walking. 🙂 We just love him.”

Lady – a 10 pound 15-year-old Schnoodle was without a home when her owner died.  Petconnect Rescue accepted Lady and asked HWAH to bring her into the HWAH Buster’s Buddy Program as a Hospice Foster.   Lady has a heart condition and digestive challenges, which we have addressed with Medical Specialists and for now she is enjoying her life at her Forever Foster home with “Dr.Michelle” and crew.
