A dog dad helped his beloved rescue pooch overcome a troubled and abusive past by building a tiny indoor sanctuary for whenever he needs a little bit of ''me-time!''

Buster didn't have the best start in life. In fact, things couldn't have been much worse for the little Staffordshire Terrier. He grew up in an abusive home, trapped in a house with the kind of people who should never be allowed to own pets.
Buster gets a second chance
Thankfully, Buster finally made it to a rescue centre for abused animals. A few days later, Sean Farrell offered to foster the pooch temporarily.
But after spending just a few weeks with Buster, Sean knew he'd found his new best friend. Buster had found his forever home!
However, Buster still carried a lot of trauma from his abusive past. He was friendly and loving, but he would often find a quiet place to hide.
Sean knew there was a happy dog somewhere inside Buster, so he spent two years training and socialising the pooch. He saw a massive improvement in Buster's mental health, but it was clear that the pooch still needed some 'alone-time' now and again.
So Sean built Buster his very own doghouse right inside the living room. It's fully equipped with a comfy doggy bed, a window to look out off, and a fan to keep Buster cool during summer!
Now whenever Buster needs a break, he just wanders into his new house, where his favourite human can keep a loving eye on him!
Buster gets the life he deserves
Buster is now happier than ever and is even helping other people get through the tough times.
Buster recently became a therapy dog. He visits hospitals, care homes, and special needs schools, where he makes lots of new friends and brings plenty of joy to other people's lives.
Well done, Buster. You deserve a happy ending!
