Like a rare blue diamond, this Blue Diamond is also very special. While she might be a bit of a diamond in the ‘ruff,’ she is still a gem of a dog! Blue Diamond and her son, Damon, were found as a strays on March 14th and taken to the Vance County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina. She and Damon were separated at the shelter. Blue Diamond was about a year old and a Pit Bull Terrier mix, and was very friendly. She seemed sad to be alone at the shelter. Part of both of her ears had been cut off. As if that weren’t enough, she had heartworms.
On April 7th, Christine Zois with the Feline Canine Fellowship Coalition in South Carolina requested RADAR’s assistance with Blue Diamond’s heartworm treatment costs. Blue Diamond’s hold time was up, and she could now be euthanized at any time. If we could help, the rescue would pull Blue Diamond and Damon. We agreed and the next day Blue Diamond and Damon were safely out of the shelter! They literally leaned on each other during their freedom ride and are together again in the same foster home! Blue Diamond received his heartworm treatment on May 10th and 11th.
“Blue Diamond is a sweet, calm girl,” Christine told us. “Her favorite things are playing with her foster mom’s son, watching the cats and generally getting into mischief! She loves to cuddle on the sofa, as well as through the fields on the foster’s farm.” To see more photos of Blue Diamond, click here.
RADAR paid all $285 of the heartworm treatment costs for Blue Diamond.
