Buddy AKA The Claremont Dog has been a town celebrity for many years. The community loves him and he
is cared for by several local businesses. He is fed well and has several houses where he can sleep
at. He is just a free spirit who does his own thing. Everyone in the town knows who he is and no one
bothers him. He is just a sweet old guy who loves living his free lifestyle.
Unfortunately Buddy was attacked by 2 dogs earlier this week. No one had seen him since the attack
and he had not been to his regular hang out spots. A group of wonderful individuals in Claremont
bonded together on 9/13/17 at 4pm and went out to search for him. Luckily, they found him still
alive but he is bad shape. He is having a hard time walking and has some severe wounds.
He was rushed to the emergency vet but they could not treat him without a rescue group taking over
his care and financial responsibilities. Hartman's Haven Dog Rescue was happy to help and called
immediately and took over his care.
