Buddy the dog. See SWNS story SWMRdog; A dog that was blasted with a rifle and savaged with a kitchen knife has been given a new lease of life after landing a role with the police. Ten year-old Buddy was rescued by his owner, Chief Inspector Jayne Forrest, after she seized him during a warrant in Doncaster seven years ago. Buddy had been used to rile pitbulls before they were made to fight. Now, Buddy spends his days bringing joy to officers and staff across South Yorkshire Police.
