When a little boy first met this dog in the shelter, he knew he had to help him find the absolute perfect home — even if it meant flying him across the country.
- He’s laying on you, Roman! (Laughing) He’s got your hood! - I found Buster at the
Augusta Animal Shelter and he is an owner surrender. So when Buster first met
me out in the play yard, he was just really happy. He was just a kisser, a hugger.
- Aw. And his tail would
not stop wagging. He was probably excited to see a
human that was excited to see him. We knew from the beginning that
Buster deserved a good home. My mom and I rescue dogs from
shelters and help them find homes. - We would really like to get
Buster a great home. - Our house is full already. - Just because it can’t be us —
- Doesn’t mean it can’t be anyone. Hi everyone, I am here
with my new friend Buster. We made a video, and we’ve
gotten some attention for Buster. He is really sweet,
and he needs a home. - We just got the best email. An application that really stands out. She’s a new vet,
and she loves Buster. It’s exciting, like she
can’t wait to get him. - He’s going to get a home! - We’re going to get Buster
from Georgia to Colorado. - Awesome! (Laughing) - We finally got a plan in
place to move Buster. A volunteer pilot is going
to fly Buster to Texas. - Want to hear some good news? You’re going on a private jet. We’re going to miss him a lot. I don’t think a dog from Augusta gets
to fly in a private airplane very much. - He will then hang out with a
rescue partner we have in Texas. - Hey there!
Welcome to Texas, bud. - So it is about 6 A.M. And we’re having a quick
potty break before we load up to head to Elkhart, Kansas
to meet our pilot that will then take Buster on. - We’re on our way to go pick up Buster from
Kansas and bring him to his new home. - Yeah, see you soon Buster. - Hey Buster, your plane just landed. - Are you going to fly? - Okay Buster. - Welcome to the plane. - You be a good boy. Ready to go meet your mama. - Are you going to
fly the plane, Buster? - Yeah, you want to fly?
I’ll sit in the back. - And off they go. Next stop Colorado. Bye Buster. - It makes us feel really good that everyone helped. They all believed that Buster and Kellie
were meant to be just like we did. - It’s beautiful out. - How you feeling? - I feel good! I’m excited. - We’re here! - Oh my gosh, a plane. - Is that him? Is it him?
- No way. - Oh, look at his little face. Look at his little tail! Oh my god. Buster! Yeah! (Laughing) Hi! How are you? Oh my god, you sweetie boy. Hey bud. How are you? Hi! Oh, I’m going to hug you forever. Oh, thank you so
much for bringing him. Hi bud. You’ve had a
long road to get here, huh? Do you want to go home? Look at that. (Laughing) - Oh yeah!
- That’s your first snow! You little Southern boy. Come on, I’ll help you. You ready to go home?
Let's go home. Home sweet home! - Whoa!
- I hit the bump. Welcome home, Buster! I can’t get enough of his happy tail. It’s just nonstop. - Come this way, buddy.
There you go, bud. There you go. Buster. You ready to go home? I opened the door and he
just kind of took off. He just went room to room, sniffing everything, jumping up on
things, wanting to see everything. He likes the cat water. I have one cat, her name is Joon. I’m worried. It’s okay.
It’s okay. He has no idea that she’s
under the bed right now. I forgot. Come here! I was surprised that, here’s this huge
basket of brand new dog toys, and he had no interest in any of them. And lo and behold, he goes and
he picks a dirty old cat toy. Buster, did you poop? We just took you outside! (Laughing) You like to dance. You look like you could
fall asleep right now, huh? - When Buster entered the shelter,
he had all the reasons to be sad. But he didn’t let that stop him. Now he’s in Colorado
with his new mom. - I’m just so grateful to Jen
and Roman for picking me because I know I can give
him a really good life. Come here. Come over here again. This is your bed. There you go. You like that? He’s at home. This is his home. And I think he knows that
he’s in his forever home. He’s not going anywhere.
Not away from me at least.
