For 4-month old Buddy, life has just became difficult. After being tagged by a bullet. the dog was rushed to a local animal shelter.
 
While at the shelter something amazing had occurred for the family. By the time the dog was out of surgery, complete strangers who about the dog through Facebook decided to pitch in towards medical expenses.

Within a few hours, Ellis said her family saw the worse and the best of their community.
