We think you’ll agree that we had to help free Brea! Approximately six years old and a Corgi-Basset Hound mix, Brea arrived as a stray at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on December 29th. She waited and waited, but no one ever came for her. On January 3rd, RADAR provided an offer to assist with Brea’s vetting costs in an effort to encourage a rescue to take her.
On January 5th, Augusta Dog Adoptions in Virginia agreed to take Brea! She had black areas on her back legs and tail, which looked like hair loss areas, but it was actually tar! The rescue’s groomer attempted to get the tar out without shaving her, but it just wasn’t possible. The name Brea actually means tar in Spanish!
Brea had her initial vetting done on January 12th. She was diagnosed and treated for a urinary tract infection and a low thyroid level. When Brea went to be spayed on January 22nd it was discovered that she was already spayed!
We were told this about Brea: “She is quiet and sweet. Brea is very low key, and is happy just to spend most of her day in her bed (or yours). Nothing makes Brea happier than a good bone to chew and a belly rub. She is in a foster home with cats, dogs and kids. Despite being a little bossy to the other animals, she is a joy to be around. Brea has the cutest little waddle when she walks!” To view more photos of Brea, click here.
RADAR paid all of Brea’s initial vetting and treatment costs, totaling $164.
