Norfolk, Va. – At just a year old, Buster the dog had known nothing but a lonely life on a chain that had become embedded in his neck, causing a deep, painful wound. But everything changed when his owners gave him to PETA, which found him a new home—and a PETA video released today captures the touching moment when his new guardian greets him at the door.
At his new home in Virginia with Nile and Doris Gomez—who were determined to help the pup when they saw his rescue story in the local paper—Buster has a soft, warm bed to sleep in and guardians who will make sure that he’ll never be chained and lonely again. “Dogs are meant to be part of our families,” says Nile. “They’re meant to be loved. And that’s what we’re hoping to provide for him—just an opportunity to receive lots and lots of love. And Christmas presents!”
