Make no bones about it, Bonez is one great dog! This five-year-old Bully Breed mix was surrendered to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 11th. Sadly, his owner was having health issues and could no longer take care of Bonez. He also had the misfortune of testing heartworm positive. A Bully Breed rescue considered pulling Bonez, but decided he was too Lab-like!
On August 13th, Gretchen Kozen, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, asked for our help with Bonez. We provided an offer to assist with the heartworm treatment costs for Bonez as an incentive for a rescue to take him. On August 19th, Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Bonez! He began his heartworm treatment medications on August 30th.
“He has a grin that can light up a room!” Gretchen told us. “He is such a pretty boy and such a good dog!” His foster mom had this to share: “He was very well loved in his old home and it shows. He’s a very affectionate boy, but a little slow to warm up. He knows a few command and is great with kids.” Click here to view more photos of Bonez.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment medication costs for Bonez, which totaled $149.
UPDATE! All funds for Bonez have been raised! Thank you!
