We salute our military families for Veteran’s Day with Buzz Lightyear, decked out here in his finest patriotic attire. Savannah Leerar and her husband, who is stationed at Fort Leavenworth, KS, saw him on Petfinder, listed by Forever Friends Animal League, Kansas City, KS. They made arrangements to meet and then adopt him.
His adjustment to his new life wasn’t easy. Right off the bat, he didn’t want to get out of the car he had arrived in when he went to meet the Leerars and moving to a new place threw him for a loop. When he was left alone in the house he tore the blinds down. On a walk, he slipped out of his collar on a walk and ran off. They had to wonder what they had gotten into.
But the Leerars were patient, thinking that he just needed a period of adjustment and lots of love. Today, Savannah says, “Buzz is a completely different Border Collie! He is very loveable, a great listener, wonderful to walk on a leash, and is free of separation anxiety … perfect for our little military family, and we don’t know what we would do without him.”
