The German meaning of the word dunsten is stew. And this Dunsten certainly found himself in a stew! Two to four years old and a Labrador Retriever mix, Dunsten arrived as a stray on February 6th at the Alexander County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina. Other than being a black dog, Dunsten is the kind of dog readily adopted or rescued. But you can probably guess the problem. Yes, he had heartworms.
On February 15th, Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina requested RADAR’s help with Dunsten. If we could assist with his heartworm treatment costs, they would take him. We agreed and Dunsten was safely out of the shelter the same day and off to a foster home. He had his heartworm treatment done on April 12th and 13th.
“Dunsten is a very sweet and lovable boy,” the rescue told us. “He has good manners and is very laid back and calm. He likes to cuddle on the couch with his humans. He is completely housebroken. Dunsten would make a great companion dog for anyone who may not be very active. He walks well on a leash and loves to go for a ride in the car. He is just such a good boy!” Click here to view more photos of Dunsten.
RADAR paid $250 towards Dunsten’s heartworm treatment costs.
