If this Aladdin were to be granted only one wish, it would be to find his forever home. Four-year-old Aladdin, a 40-pound Black Mouth Cur-Shepherd mix, was found as a stray on February 6th and taken to the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. As is all too common, Aladdin tested heartworm positive, which greatly hampered his ability to secure an adoption or rescue placement.
On March 9th, Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program reached out to RADAR about Aladdin. If his heartworm treatment costs could be covered, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut would take him. Of course, we agreed to help!
Aladdin had his heartworm treatment done on March 20th. December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The Heart Beat Goes On, had this to tell us about Aladdin: “He is so scared. He is gentle and very cautious. He feels safe hiding behind things rather than sitting between your legs. Loud noises are too much for him. We have to take our time with him and make no sudden movements. However, with time and structure, he has already come out of his shell a bit.” To see more photos of Aladdin, click here.
RADAR paid $375 of the heartworm treatment costs for Aladdin.
