Arrival Story:
All my pets have neat enterances into our lives, Buggz was an angel sent in a rough time of our lives! My sister has a Shih Tzu named Elmo, Elmo is a girl and she's just the sweetest thing, with a bark that makes you laugh, its so cute! Anyways, Elmo had pups about 7 or 8 years ago, and one of them ended up being owned by these real nice people about 2 hrs. drive away, she was named Maggie. Maggie was then breed when she was about 3 or 4 and she had 8 pups! Sadly only 6 survived. Out of this 1/2 doz. came a pup they called Hoppy, from birth he dragged his back legs and when he got a bit bigger, he started to use his back legs in unison. He was the happiest, always the first to come running(hopping), and brought a smile to everyones face! Well it came time to figure out what to do with him, and the people didn't think any one would want him,for fear of large vet bills and his back legs would become a hinderance. My husband and I were going through some major health problems and we were both very depressed and looking for a dog, my sister told me of Maggies pups and of the one they called Hoppy, the lady who had him was willing to give him to us, for free, only if we had him fixed and took excellent care of him! My sister assured her we looked after our pets better then our selves! So entered Buggz (we named him even before ever meeting him)he was a 12 wk old bundle of hair that hopped and was just so happy, not one cry out of him on those first few nights, he was and still is a real charmer! My husband took him on daily hikes through forests, rock climbing, running up and down hills, and every night he would do leg exercises with Buggz and give his hips and legs massages . The Vet said " if he's happy and not in any pain, just let him be" so we have, his front end is like a Sherman tank and his back end is still light and it has a habit of swinging around towards his head and he will go into summersaults!! He loves to swim, he only uses his front legs, his back ones get tucked up under his belly! He's amazing!! well, thats his mom talking! He loves people and especially the elderly that use canes, all because I have to use one! He is my walking buddy, when I can, he'll stop and wait for me, to make sure I'm fine! He knows all his commands, and will stop dead in his tracks when a certain word is said, and he's the life of the party!! I love my Buggz!!
