LI's Adorable Adoptables is a weekly column by Allison Matos, a lifelong Long Island resident who has been advocating animal adoption since 2012. Allison's weekly posts highlight local animals in need of adoption, and cover general animal welfare topics as well.
 
Buddy needs a miracle, can you help? This handsome boy came to the shelter as a stray in October 2015 and was really scared upon arrival. Since then, staff is happy to report that he is no longer scared, and happens to be very friendly and sweet.
 
When he first came in, he tested poorly with other dogs, but thanks to dedicated staff and volunteers, Buddy has earned his stripes and would now be considered a great new best friend. Buddy improves constantly and now even happily goes out for strolls with many different dogs. Buddy is also a fun loving boy who loves to play with toys. If you think you got what it takes, please ask to meet Buddy today. Please call for more information: 516-785-5220, or come visit us at: 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh NY 11793.
 
As always, thank you for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop. Pass it on.
