Canine Star of Local Play Needs a New Home

A dog who won a round of applause for her part in a recent performance of a classic play needs a new home, or her days might be numbered.

“Buddy,” who starred as “Sandy” in a recent performance of “Little Orphan Annie” by the Rhode Island Youth Theatre, is nine years old and in the care of the East Greenwich Animal Protection League after her owner went to a nursing home.  Buddy was recently injured and needs surgery, which the league is willing to pay for provided someone adopts her.  If no one does, they say they'll have to put her down.
