Default Buddy the Austrailian Shephard Rescue

My wife finally got me to sign up for Pilot N paws. On April 6th we flew our
first passenger. His name was Buddy a 6 year old Assie shepard who was turned into a kill shelter from his owners. He was 90% blind at birth and the
owners did not know this. He was a very sick dog when turned in but was nursed back to health and a new home was found. We picked him up in Ravenswood WV from another pilot (Paul) who fly's many rescues. When we got there Buddy was sitting on Paul's lap on a picnic table just enjoying the
great weather. We loaded him up and off we went to KCFJ Crawfordsville Indiana. Buddy did great and finally fell asleep. We had about 1hr 20 min flight
and when we arrived his new family was waiting. We unloaded Buddy and he seemed right at home with his new family.
This was a very rewarding trip for us to be able to help this wonderful dog.
We got an update last week that Buddy is doing great.
Oh KCFJ airport has a new FBO which is really nice.
