Pet of the Week

Fate brought Buster the boxer together with owners Kenny and Suzanne Thomson four years ago and now they can’t imagine life without him.

The Rumford couple’s dog Pepsi, also a boxer, had just died and a chance encounter in a shop led them to a litter of puppies in Carron which included little Buster.

Kenny said: “He was the character - he barked, bit my finger and fell over.”

Growing up to become a “very inquisitive” dog, Buster can be regularly found raking the bin for scraps of food. Despite this habit, he retains his slim and muscular physique.

Kenny said: “His parents were both show dogs and you can see it in the way he walks. He’s a very intelligent dog, but his attention span is short and he does need a lot of exercise.”
