Boy, oh boy, there was no joy for poor Geoboy. This two-year-old American Bulldog-Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix was picked up by animal control on August 19th, along with his sister. The siblings, both strays, were taken to the Bryan County Animal Control shelter in Georgia where, sadly, they both contracted an illness. His sister did not survive. Fortunately, the shelter director was able to nurse Geoboy back to health. But, he still had an infected boil between his shoulder blades that was painful and seeping. Even worse, the shelter was small and full. Geoboy was first on the list to be euthanized.
On October 20th, and with only one day to spare before he was to be euthanized, Coastal Pet Rescue in Georgia requested RADAR’s assistance so that they could take in Geoboy. We agreed, and much to everyone’s relief, Geoboy made it safely out of the shelter. Cheryl Garland with the Coastal Pet Rescue had this to say: “I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you! RADAR helped to save a life today.”
Geoboy received his initial vetting, neutering and treatment for his boil. Luckily, he tested heartworm negative. The shelter had only positive things to say about this handsome and cheerful little guy, “What a great dog! He just loves and wants to be loved by everyone.” Thanks in part to RADAR’s help, Geoboy was transformed into the smiling cutie-pie he is today! Click here to see more photos of Geoboy.
RADAR paid $200 towards Geoboy’s initial vetting, neutering and treatment costs.
UPDATE! Geoboy has been adopted!
