Bishop, a two-year-old Hound mix, was named after the Bishop Hollow area where he was found. This area is, sadly, a popular dumping ground for Hound dogs. Bishop was brought into the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on August 30th. Unsurprisingly for an abandoned dog, he was heartworm positive. Despite his handsome speckled ears, his heartworm status made it difficult to find interested adopters or rescues.
Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, reached out to RADAR on September 15th. Would we cover Bishop’s heartworm treatments? We said we would pay for Bishop’s heartworm expenses, and Bishop had his back-to-back heartworm injections on September 23rd and 24th.
Bishop is said to have a great temperament. He is calm and just goes with the flow. He is good with other dogs. Bishop looks forward to settling in with his forever family. A comfy bed, food, plenty of love and no heartworms will make him one happy boy! To see more photos of Bishop, click here.
RADAR paid all $356 of the heartworm treatment costs for Bishop.
UPDATE! Bishop has been adopted by his foster family!
