B-Town Blog

‘Buddha,’ a red-brindled English Bulldog that went missing from the Gregory Heights neighborhood February 4, and today we’re happy to report some GREAT news – after missing for 17 days, he’s been found and safely reunited with his owners!

This is the second dog in the last month or so to go missing in the area, only to be successfully found after its Owners did massive publicity campaigns (posters, blog posts, Facebook, TV news, etc.) to help find it.

Candace shared this update on her Facebook Page on Friday, Feb. 22:

Yes, inquiring minds wants to know the story: Our deepest apologies for when Buddha came home, we all turned everything off, cuddled and SLEPT!!!

At 10am on February 21st 2013, 17 days after Buddha went missing, we received a phone call from a man saying he thinks he has our dog.

Their story is they bought Buddha from someone off the street for $400. The seller told the couple he found the dog.

They took him home thinking they found a new pet until they saw our lost Buddha posters everywhere.

The lady is a bus driver who sees the posters everyday. The man said he couldn’t take Buddha out for walks because there were posters everywhere. They finally called us to make sure it was our dog.

Around 3pm, we met them along with Burien police (to ensure our safety) and lo and behold, it was our Buddha! And yes, we cried the “ugly cry” where your whole body shook uncontrollably and you didn’t care who saw you!

We’re so grateful to each and every one of you who followed Buddha’s story and in our journey in bringing him home. We are very lucky and have learned a great lesson.

We will be making our thank you rounds in the days to come, a date with Buddha’s vet, removing Lost Buddha posters, getting him a new collar-GPS, reinforcing our fence and just enjoying our time with Buddha - our little guy who made such a big fuss!

Vet follow-up report: Buddha needed TLC - his skin was scabbed over/missing fur, his ropes (face wrinkle) was infected, nose was cracked. He also had bloody stool. Good thing his vet and staff took very good care of him and he's recovering soundly.
