Beau means beautiful or handsome in French, and that’s just what this Beau is! Approximately two years old and a Hound mix, he entered the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on December 15th. Beau was a shelter favorite. He was used to test other dogs’ temperament because of his personality. We’re not sure how or why he ended up in the shelter, but as both a Hound and heartworm positive, his life was at risk at this small rural shelter.
The same day he arrived at the shelter, Gretchen Kozen, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, asked for our assistance with Beau. To encourage a rescue to take him, we provided an offer to assist with his vetting costs. On December 23rd, K-9 Lifesavers Dog Rescue in Virginia came forward to pull Beau! He received his heartworm treatment on February 15th.
“With lots of patience and love,” the rescue told us, “we have slowly worked up to earning Beau’s trust. After about two weeks with us, he turned the corner and learned to trust again and blossomed. He is a friendly guy who does great with other dogs and likes to romp around with canine buddies. He loves people and is a great kisser!” To see more photos of Beau, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Beau.
