When they go home they can not forget about the dog and they tell their parents how unhappy they are. They really want to rescue him. To their delight their parents agree to go and collect the dog if nobody has claimed him. At the police station they are told that he has been taken to a dog pound. They go there, and happily take him home, and call him Buddy. The following day something frightening happens to the two children, and it is only through their new friend Buddy, that they are saved.
