Eventually, Buckwheat was released back into the wild, but by then, word had spread of Stephen and Sarge’s knack for rehabilitating orphaned and injured wild fawns. Her phone started ringing off the hook and, for Sarge, every time a new deer arrives, it’s like Christmas morning.
“When I walk in the door carrying a fawn, Sarge springs into action. He wants to check them over and he will frantically sniff and nose around to determine their condition,” Stephen said. “The fawns are drawn to Sarge and feel safe in his presence. Sarge won’t leave their side.”
