Introducing a new addition to the family can be a challenging experience when you already have a dog. The dog’s reaction to the newcomer can range from affection to resentment, and deciphering their thoughts is no easy task. Most of the time, things turn out well, but, as this video demonstrates, sometimes they turn out exceptionally well.
Reagan made his entrance into Kari Lewis’s life when she was feeling down after her two foster daughters had been adopted. This eight-month-old pooch, who went by the name Reagan, actually resided with Kari’s mother, but she spent plenty of time with him. Then, the opportunity arose for Kari to adopt an eight-month-old boy, and she named him “Buddy” because he was destined to be Reagan’s companion. The two of them quickly became an internet sensation, amassing over 100,000 followers.
Buddy and Reagan make for a remarkably photogenic pair. The video is brimming with adorable pictures of their adventures together. One particularly charming image depicts them dressed as ghosts, and another features them in matching pajamas, an endearing sight that owes much to the creativity of Buddy’s foster mother and grandmother. These moments will undoubtedly provide lasting memories.
It’s worth noting that Buddy’s face is deliberately obscured in the photos, a precaution taken for his safety. As you might have already deduced, “Buddy” is not his real name, a wise choice by his foster family considering the unknown nature of some of his Instagram followers. Here’s hoping that Reagan and Buddy maintain their friendship for a long time to come, even if Buddy eventually finds a permanent home.

Today, pets play a crucial role in offering companionship, emotional support, and reducing feelings of loneliness and stress. They contribute significantly to high self-esteem and positive emotions, especially among children. Many people consider their pets as cherished family members, and the thought of parting with them is inconceivable. However, coexisting harmoniously with animals isn’t always easy, and sometimes, adoption becomes the last resort for families facing challenges in their relationship with their pets.
Various factors can lead to pets being abandoned, including a lack of time to provide adequate attention, financial difficulties, unintended litters, changes in family dynamics such as the arrival of new members, or loss of housing.
