Isabella is a true belle with a mixture of Labrador Retriever and Shepherd in her ancestry. She was terrified when her moving family left her at the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on March 12th. This four-and-a-half-year-old dog began to warm up to the shelter staff and show off her great personality, but she had a barrier to finding a new home: she was heartworm positive.

Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, advocated for Isabella and asked RADAR for help on April 4th. Could we cover Isabella’s heartworm medical costs? We agreed right away and Isabella’s heartworm treatment concluded on April 10th.

Isabella is quite the charmer. “She is good with dogs, cats and kids,” Kristin told us. “She knows some basic commands, and loves to play with stuffed toys and tennis balls. She will make a great family dog. She is crate and house trained, and absolutely gorgeous!” Click here to view more photos of Isabella.

RADAR paid all of Isabella’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $414.

UPDATE! Isabella has been adopted! Her new family includes a fur-brother named Roscoe!
