Buster loves being around people and would make a great dog to go on a walk with or just relax on the couch and watch a movie.
VON ORMY, Texas — Our “Forgotten Friends” series showcases a dog or cat each week that has spent a lengthy time at an area shelter, just waiting for someone to notice them and bring them home to love.
This week, we went to God’s Dogs Rescue in Von Ormy to meet Buster Brown, a 5-year-old Newfoundland / Chow Chow mix who sadly has not had a single application in the over two years he has been at the shelter. And they can’t figure out why because he is super sweet and would make someone a fabulous companion.
Buster is a beautiful color similar to burnt orange mixed with brown, with short, but fluffy and extremely soft fur. He weighs about 70-75 pounds, so definitely a large breed dog. Buster is also neutered and current on all of his vaccinations.

When Buster first arrived at the shelter, he had really bad injuries to his back end that shelter staff thought might be the result of a car accident or possibly being dragged. His legs were in bad shape and he had trouble walking for the first few days he was at God’s Dogs. But fast forward to the present day, and you would never know that he was injured.
Buster has a strong spirit and is super sweet. He gets along great with other dogs, but they aren’t sure if he is a fan of cats. Maybe he just hasn’t met the right one.
Shelter staff think he’d do best with an active adult human with no really young kids.
“Buster will be a great companion to watch a movie and relax with, or go for a walk with,” said Theresa, with God’s Dogs Rescue. “He loves getting pets and being talked to, being brushed, and he rarely barks.” And he loooves treats!
He does well on a leash when out walking and also doesn’t mind his crate. He can be a little reserved when you first meet him, but give him a little time and he warms up very quickly. Buster is smart, independent and most of all… goofy.
“In all the time Buster Brown has been with God’s Dogs Rescue he hasn’t had a single application,” said Theresa. “He’s the best behaved pup at events, and occasionally gets noticed, but so far his person hasn’t found him.”
Do you think Buster Brown might make a good addition to your family?
For whoever adopts Buster Brown, Lucy’s Doggy Daycare & Spa will be lending a paw by offering them a free “Glow Up” Day at the Spa, which includes a massage therapy bath and Pawdicure. One of Lucy’s most cherished core values is to continue Lucy’s legacy of giving back to pups in need, as Lucy herself was a rescue!
