Happy Tails: Julian Buford's Story

Julian Buford

"Don't forget to add Buford (now Julian Buford) to your list of Happy Tails. He was adopted on 9/8 and has already helped me lose a couple of pounds due to our vigorous walks ... smart, high energy, quick learner and good looking, likes people and other dogs.

"Has already gone to camp for a day to socialize and did great. If we could now just get along with our cat, all would be perfect, but all in good time ... Julian is a puppy after all!

"Thank you, Irving Shelter, for helping so many pets find good homes and for looking after those in transition so well!  You make it great to live in Irving!"

The animal welfare community is vibrant and passionate about saving the lives of countless homeless pets. These persons and organizations, located throughout our city and nation, provide foster homes, transport animals, promote the adoption of animals, post pictures on websites, and assist shelters in numerous other ways. Irving Animal Services works with the animal welfare community to place Irving Animal Care Campus animals into loving homes. While Irving Animal Services is appreciative of the efforts of the individuals and organizations that comprise the animal welfare community, the City of Irving neither controls them nor is responsible for the content on their websites.
