The name Beau means handsome, but this Beau has more going on than just his good looks! This two-year-old Lab mix arrived at the Scotland County Humane Society shelter in North Carolina on February 27th. He was brought in as a stray, and not much was known about his past. One thing was for sure though, his chances of being rescued or adopted weren’t great, being a black dog and testing positive for heartworms.
Thankfully, Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina wanted to pull Beau from the shelter, but needed assistance with the cost of his heartworm treatment. Karen Steers with the rescue reached out to RADAR on March 5th to see if we could help. Unable to resist Beau’s charm and good looks, we agreed to assist! Beau received his heartworm treatment on April 23rd.
Beau’s foster family said that he’s a pretty chill, laid-back guy who loves to snuggle and soak up all the love his family gives him. He gets along well with other dogs, and he never causes any kind of trouble. While he enjoys good food and treats, he’s not very interested in toys, preferring to spend as much time as possible being close to his humans. He’s also a big fan of belly rubs!

RADAR paid all of Beau’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $285.
