Yowzer! Yowzer! It’s Bowzer! On December 19th Bowzer was surrendered by his owner to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee. What was the reason? The owner’s other dog didn’t like Bowzer. So off Bowzer went to the shelter to await his fate. The shelter staff found two-year-old Bowzer to be a very friendly and reserved guy. He’s a unique blend of Mountain Cur, Hound and Pit Bull with a remarkably expressive look. Unfortunately, Bowzer tested heartworm positive.
On January 31st Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, contacted RADAR to get some help for Bowzer. Kristin told us that the only thing standing in the way of finding this great dog a rescue or adopter was getting him treated for his heartworms. We agreed to assist. Bowzer received her heartworm treatment on February 2nd.
“Bowzer is such a laid-back, sweet guy!” Kristin said. “We thought his calm demeanor was due to him being nervous in the shelter. But he’s been in a foster home, and sure enough, he just doesn’t let anything bother him. Despite his relatively young age he is very wise. I love this guy!” To see more photos of Bowzer, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Bowzer.
UPDATE! Bowzer has been adopted by his foster family!
UPDATE! All funds for Bowzer have been raised! Thank you!
