Johnny Cash sang about a boy named Sue, and now we’ll tell you about a female dog named Beau! The owners of this three-year-old Australian Cattle Dog mix said they had adopted her from a shelter about a year ago. But they only recently took her to be spayed with the coupon the shelter had given them. They said that the vet told them he could not spay Beau because she was heartworm positive, so they surrendered her to the Surry County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 22nd.
Mayberry 4 Paws in North Carolina, an organization that helps find rescues for Surry County dogs, contacted RADAR on September 8th with a request for help, and we offered to assist with Beau’s heartworm treatment costs. With her life on the line and RADRA’s financial assistance, Mayberry 4 Paws pulled Beau on September 21st. She had her heartworm treatment done on September 27th. On October 14th, the Simon Foundation rescue in Connecticut agreed to take Beau. They call her Boo!
“Beau is a friendly, playful and happy dog,” we were told. “She smiles from ear to ear! She loves everyone, including other dogs. She is very laid-back, calm and mellow. She has the sweetest personality, and she’s cute as can be! Beau’s a little on the plump side but she wears it well. No body shaming for Beau!” Click here to view more photos of Beau.
RADAR paid all of Beau’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $413.
