Once police got in contact with Buddy’s owner, Patsy Sumpter, they realized just how lucky this dog was to be alive. The 13-year-old blind Goldendoodle also happened to be battling cancer, and Sumpter was worried sick when he never returned after she had let him out five days earlier.
“Normally he goes down in the woods and he comes back,” Sumpter told KARE 11. “And he didn’t come back. And I kept calling and calling. The weather changed and it snowed that next morning and it just got worse and worse, and I just felt so helpless.”
Little did Sumpter know, Buddy was close enough that he could have heard her calls, however, he just couldn’t make it back out of the window well. “I prayed and prayed and it’s just so miraculous that they found him,” said Sumpter. “I don’t think he would have made it one more night.”
