Well, I’ll Bea! This seven-year-old Hound mix was found as a lost or abandoned hunting dog and admitted to the Bladen County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 30th. With the shelter crowded and Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas, Bea was among several dogs scheduled to be euthanized just ahead of the storm on September 12th.
Best Friend Pet Adoption rescue in North Carolina was determined to help these dogs, so just prior to being euthanized, they rescued five of them. Keri Telliho with the rescue reached out to RADAR for assistance for two of the dogs: Bea and Belle. We agreed. While Belle did not have heartworms, Bea did. On October 22nd and 23rd, Bea had her heartworm treatment done. After recovering and then going into heat, she was able to be spayed on January 9th.
“Bea is definitely a smart cookie!” her foster shared with us. “She’s definitely strong-willed and has her ways. She likes to get attention by reaching her paw out to you. She tends to snuggle in her own space on the bed but will occasionally snuggle up against you when she wants to. When she feels comfortable, she likes to sleep upside down and has the cutest little whistling sound when she does! She has her routine now and tends to stick to that. She does well with other dogs she meets, doesn’t seem to want to chase squirrels or rabbits, but there was one instance where she was very interested in a cat. Most of all she just likes to sniff everything when she’s on her walk!” To see more photos of Bea, click here.
RADAR paid all of Bea’s spay and heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $489.
UPDATE! All funds for Bea have been raised! Thank you!
