Archie proved to be a bit flighty, but in this case it was a good thing! We’ll get to that part of the story shortly. The four to five-year-old Cairn Terrier, arrived at the Onslow County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on December 15th. When Archie, whose name had been Kai, was picked up by animal control due to neglect, his owner agreed to surrender him. With his history of neglect, it was not surprising that he tested heartworm positive.
On January 4th, Christine Risley with The Rescue Express in Pennsylvania requested RADAR’s help with Archie. If we could assist with the costs of his heartworm treatment, the rescue would pull him. We agreed, which led to the flighty part: his transport. A volunteer pilot with Flying Fur Rescue provided a flight for Archie from North Carolina to Pennsylvania on January 21st!
The heartworm treatment for Archie took place on March 26th and April 24th. “He is a wonderful dog who loves being with other dogs, kids and cats,” Christine told us. “He is gentle, quiet and an all-around great boy. He walks great on the leash, is crate trained and sleeps quietly through the night. He would make a fantastic family pet or a loving lap dog!” Click here to view more photos of Archie.
RADAR paid all of Archie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $178.
UPDATE! Archie has been adopted by his foster family!
