There’s the Biblical Battle of Jericho, and then there’s the battle of this Jericho to find a rescue and get the medical help he urgently needed. A two to three-year-old Bully Breed mix, Jericho was a stray who wandered up to a house, which resulted in a call to animal control. He was taken to the Surry County Animal Control shelter on February 6th. He had an injured and infected toe and an sore shoulder. Unfortunately, the shelter had no ability to provide any vet care.
Mayberry 4 Paws, an organization that specializes in helping at-risk dogs at the Surry County shelter, immediately reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with Jericho. With RADAR’s assistance, they would take Jericho and get him to a vet. We agreed at once, and Jericho was off to the vet the same day!
He had to have his infected toe amputated, which was done on February 6th, along with his other vetting, neutering and shoulder x-ray. The vet determined that the sore shoulder is from an old, untreated injury. Jericho’s foster family reports that he is very sweet. His foot is healing nicely. He seems housebroken and very smart.

RADAR paid $500 towards the vetting, x-ray, neuter and toe amputation costs for Jericho.
