Long live the “Good Girl” Queen Bess! Her Majesty, a beautiful Blue Pit Bull, has spent the full four years of her life reigning over the lands of North Carolina. On February 2nd, this royally radiant lady arrived at the Bertie County Humane Society shelter in North Carolina as a stray. Sadly, Queen Bess needed some help. She tested positive for heartworms, which would greatly hinder her ability to continue her successful sovereignty.
It would take a rescue, with RADAR’s help, to come to the rescue of Bess. And that’s just what happened. On March 16th, Sandy Echeverry with Mutt Love Rescue in Virginia reached out to us to see if we could assist with the heartworm treatment costs for Bess. If so, they would take her. We agreed and Bess was safe! After several months of health issues, Bess began her heartworm treatment on July 3rd.
“Bess is a friendly girl who just loves people,” Sandy said. She is okay with other dogs, but doesn’t like them right in her face. She is really very affectionate and I think will make someone a wonderful companion!” Sandy then had this update: “Good news is that Bess will be officially adopted by her foster once all her treatments are done.” To see more photos of Bess, click here.
RADAR paid $314 for half of the total heartworm treatment costs for Bess.
UPDATE! Bess has been adopted… by her foster family!
UPDATE! All funds for Bess have been raised! Thank you!
