BuckBeforeBefore Monkey’s House Buck was in poor shapeBuckAfterAt Monkey’s House Buck blossomedBuck made his way to Monkey’s House shortly after we opened in 2015. He was deaf, blind, had a bad heart, bad lungs, strokes, and on top of that he had a brain tumor. But all of that didn’t stop him from being an incredible teacher and friend.
Buck celebrated four “gotcha days” with us. (A “gotcha day” is the annual anniversary of a dog’s adoption or rescue.) Not bad for a little dog that the shelter veterinarian said had a month or so to live and recommended euthanasia.
He had much to teach us about living, loving, and focusing on what body parts still work rather than on what parts don’t. He taught us to believe in miracles and to keep hoping even when all hope is lost. He survived many downward spirals and enjoyed his life. Whenever or where ever you saw Michele, Buck wasn’t far behind.

Hannah Bear was one of the most stunning dogs that ever-called Monkey’s House home. But it didn’t start out that way.



Out of all the dogs we’ve cared for, Buck not only had a great success story but he became one of our greatest teachers.



Fletcher reminded us that life doesn't have to be as complicated as we make it. And right before our eyes he made a best friend in a little boy.
