Aladdin turned out to be a-lad-in luck! But that wasn’t always the case. On December 29th this one-year-old Labrador Retriever-Hound mix found himself at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. It’s unknown how or why he ended up at the shelter. However, we do know that Aladdin tested heartworm positive and had no rescue or adopter interest.
On February 17th, the Sampson County Animal Advocates requested RADAR’s help for Aladdin. We provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. With Aladdin’s time rapidly running out, on March 3rd, Toni Diamond of Diamond Dogs Rescue in New Jersey agreed to take Aladdin! He received his heartworm treatment on March 13th. He was transported to his foster home in Massachusetts on April 12th.
We were told this about Aladdin: “This big fellow has a personality as huge as he is! He’s playful, he’s happy to be with his humans and he’s good with other dogs and children. Aladdin doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. His favorite thing to do is cuddle! We are not surprised that this incredible dog is doing so well. We knew he was special!” To see many more photos of Aladdin, click here. He also has his own Facebook page!
RADAR paid $250 towards Aladdin’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! Aladdin has been adopted! Even more amazing?? He has a furry brother named Bandit, who is also a RADAR-assisted dog! They were saved by the same rescue, about 3 months apart, and fostered by the same family! How cool is that?
UPDATE! All funds for Aladdin have been raised! Thank you!
