What would you call the perfect necktie for this fine fella? Yes, a Beau tie! Approximately three years old, Beau is an interesting mix of Shepherd, Redbone Coonhound and Black Mouth Cur. He was surrendered to the Davie County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on February 9th. The reason? A fifth child was on the way and the family was moving. Poor Beau, having lived in the same house all of his life, was very sad and confused. He was also heartworm positive.
On March 9th, shelter animal advocate Dee Dee Clark contacted RADAR, seeking assistance for Beau. Wags Rescue & Referral in Pennsylvania was interested in taking him if some funding could be found for his heartworm treatment costs. We agreed. Dee Dee provided Beau with his temporary foster home in North Carolina. He received his heartworm treatment on April 12th.
“Simply put, Beau is a loving, loyal companion,” Dee Dee told us. “He loves to snuggle, chew on his toys, ride in the car, as well as play with a ball as long as you throw it for him! He’s a good boy, who knows how to sit, especially if you have a treat, as he is very food motivated; he is still learning other commands. He does great with other dogs as well as children. He is very social and loves to be involved in all activities. As he is higher energy, Beau would be a great fit for an active family with a large yard.” To see more photos of Beau, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Beau.
