THE Banffshire Advertiser has teamed up with the SSPCA to feature a different pet each week in need of a new home.
The charity's Drumoak centre in Aberdeenshire looks after lots of different animals, who are in need of a forever home for a variety of reasons.
Advertiser chief reporter Alan Beresford got his dog Buster from Drumoak and the pair have been best friends ever since.
Buster started life in Glasgow before moving to the Aberdeenshire Centre and Alan wanted to get a dog to get out walking to deal with some health issues.
For Alan and Buster's full story and this week's pet in need of a new home, pick up a copy of this week's Advertiser - out now.
