Country singer and songwriter Alan Jackson was once quoted as saying this: “The older you are, I think you realize what you enjoy and what you don’t need, what wears you out and what’s important.” This Alan (named after Alan Jackson), a Boxer with five and a half years under his belt, just wanted a place to call home and someone to share his love with. He arrived as a stray at the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on July 3rd with a huge tumor on his rear leg, which was removed and found to be a low-grade mast cell tumor. Unfortunately, he was also heartworm positive, and he needed treatment.
On July 19th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, asked RADAR if we could help with Alan’s heartworm treatment. “Middle Tennessee Boxer Rescue would like to take him if we can get his heartworm treatment done,” Kristin said. We agreed to assist, and he received his treatment on July 25th. He was transported to the rescue on July 28th.
“Alan is a gorgeous Boxer!” Krisitin told us. “He loves everyone, including other dogs, in spite of the fact that he was not well cared for. I just love this guy. He’s always so darn happy!” Click here to view more photos of Alan.
RADAR paid all of Alan’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $340.
