Doris is glorious! But she neither looked nor felt glorious when she arrived as a stray along with a running buddy at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on February 25th. A three-year-old, hazel-eyed Bully Breed mix, Doris was emaciated and in poor health. She not only tested heartworm positive but was in need of general veterinary treatment. Could someone help Doris to become the stunning dog hidden inside her emaciated yet loving frame?
Suruluna Animal Rescue in New York asked RADAR on March 4th if we could assist with Doris’s vet care and heartworm treatment. We looked deep into Doris’s hazel eyes and said “yes!” Doris had x-rays and was spayed on April 17th. We helped with the cost of her heartworm treatments on April 18th and 19th.
“Doris is beautiful, sweet and affectionate,” the rescue told us. “She loves people and is good around other dogs. Doris would be a great family dog as she is wonderful around children. She is also house trained and crate trained. Doris has a funny face with a cute underbite and her personality is fun, playful and joyous.” Be sure to view more photos in Doris’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of the x-ray, spaying and partial heartworm treatment costs for Doris, which totaled $352.
