Phantom's Magic Carpet Ride, We’re All a Buzz

Phantom_6_with_Elliotphantoms_rideThis little 10-month-old Dal-mix arrived to DRTB Foster Mom Karen H. in style! Found as just another stray, little Phantom caught our eye when help was needed. While trying to arrange transport, poor Phantom came down not only with kennel cough, but also mange from stress.

Thanks to Cathy E. for finally arranging a flight from Bainbridge, Georgia to Gainesville. Pilot Elliot M. and Co-Pilot Ray H. donation the flight and flew Phantom along with 4 other abandoned pups to awaiting foster homes. Apparently, Phantom was so scared he had to be carried on and off the plane  and even into his foster home.  However,after a couple of days of friendly faces, he is finally starting to walk on his own. Big wags to phantom_inflightthese guys for their time and generosity in getting dogs to safety.

Phantom_5Phantom will now be totally vetted and readied to look for his new forever home. Thanks also to volunteer Donna for picking him up at the airport. He has just been posted on Petfinder with a new name, BUZZ, in honor of his method of arrival.


UPDATE Sept. 6, 2011: Buzz is being adopted by his foster mom, Karen H.... YAY! I see agility in his future... he's still flying high :D
