Alex, Company Mascot and Co-Founder
Alex has had quite an exciting life! Born in North Carolina in 2003, Alex roamed the country side with his own pack before being brought to a rescue farm. Eventually, he was shipped up north to the Buddy Dog Animal Rescue League, where he and Jill first met. They have been inseparable ever since.
An active happy dog, Alex’s favorite activities include taking runs, sniffing things, and riding in the car. He is a Golden Retriever/Chow Chow mix with the best of both dispositions.
