Buddy the dog needs a Furever home for Christmas: Cleveland APL Pet of the Week

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Animal Protective League has teamed up with Cleveland 19's Chief Meteorologist Jason Nicholas to find a home for one special dog or cat every Tuesday.

Watch the segment in the 4 p.m. show every Tuesday on Cleveland 19 News and like the Cleveland 19 News Facebook page for live videos with the pet.

Today the APL is bringing Buddy, a 1-year-old Lab/Bassett Hound mix. "He's super cute with little legs," the APL said.

The APL is open Saturday and on Christmas Eve.

Did you know dog droppings can impact our groundwater, streams, and lake? When it rains, bacteria from doggie doo can soak into groundwater, or be carried by rainwater to storm sewers which carry the flow to nearby streams. In both cases, the water is not treated at a wastewater treatment plant, and that's not good for the environment.
