It’s Deacon, the dual dog. When he’s outside he’s a typical Lab, but when he’s inside he’s more of lap dog than a Lab dog! Two-year-old Deacon arrived at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on May 21st as a stray. Unfortunately, he was heartworm positive. This would greatly limit his rescue or adoption options.
On May 25th, Karen Steers of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina contacted RADAR to see if we would be able to help with Deacon. They were prepared to pull him from the shelter the next day, but they needed assistance with the cost of his heartworm treatment. We agreed to help, and Deacon was safe! He had his heartworm treatments on June 27th and 28th.
The rescue described Deacon like this: “He’s a cuddly, curious and energetic guy who loves walking on his leash and hiking in the woods. His dopey grin makes everyone he passes smile. He is crate trained and house trained. Deacon is amazing with other dogs and children of all ages. Baby cries don’t even phase him! Deacon is an amazingly happy puppy who will melt your heart with his love and energy.” Click here to view more photos of Deacon.
RADAR paid all of Deacon’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $236.
UPDATE! Deacon has been adopted… by his foster family!
