Buddy Deutsch is Canton's newest TOP DOG! He and his proud humans, Gail and Barry, stopped by the Town Hall today to claim his basket of goodies and tag #1. Buddy was chosen at random among the 898 dogs who were registered on time (by June 30th). Buddy is a seven year old poodle/lab/setter mix who was rescued and adopted from Arkansas by the Deutschs at the age of 3 months old. He has grown up playing and exploring the trails of the Canton Land Conservation Trust properties and looks forward to meeting new friends at the Canton Dog Park! Congratulations Buddy...may you be a benevolent ruler!
