You’d have to be a fuddy-duddy not to like little Buddy! This five to six-month-old English Pointer mix was surrendered by his owner to the Halifax County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on February 19th. He initially had rescue interest, but then for some unknown reason, it fell through. As February turned to March, Buddy became ill at the shelter.
On March 5th, RADAR supporter Jackie Stanley went to the shelter and was very concerned about Buddy’s rapidly worsening health. Her fear was that he had parvovirus and needed urgent, lifesaving veterinary care. She reached out to Rainbow Animal Rescue in North Carolina, and they agreed to take Buddy if the could get some financial help for him. Jackie quickly asked for our help and we immediately agreed. Buddy was rushed to the vet the same day! He did indeed test positive for parvovirus.
Fortunately, and thanks in large part to Jackie’s prompt action, Buddy recovered quickly. Within a few days he was able to go to his foster home. Jackie shared this with us about Buddy: “He’s very friendly and loves to be held. He likes other dogs and children. Buddy is a happy, curious and playful pup!” Click here to view more photos of Buddy.
RADAR paid $150 towards Buddy’s initial vetting and parvovirus treatment costs.
