The name Jodie is of Hebrew origin and means “praised.” This Jodie, a four-year-old Bully Breed mix, deserves lots of praise for overcoming all of the obstacles that led up to her arrival on October 4th at the Rocky Mount shelter in Nash County, North Carolina. Jodie, who was once known as Felicity, had a very hard life, having been abused and used for breeding before being left out on the street. On top of her already poor condition, Jodie was also heartworm positive. With all that stood against her, including being a Bully Breed, it seemed like it would take a miracle to get Jodie out of the high-kill shelter and into a loving home.
On October 12th, Anna Cilento, founder and director of Suruluna Animal Rescue in New York State, sought RADAR’s help with Jodie. If we could help with the cost of Jodie’s heartworm treatment, the rescue would be able to pull her from the shelter. We agreed to assist, and she got her treatment on November 15th and 16th!
“Jodie is a short little mama who was left on the street, but who never changed her sweet personality,” Anna told us. “She is great with people, crate trained (although she doesn’t love it) and she is great with dogs who are gentle and respectful. Jodie is just an amazing dog! Friendly, sweet, low rider, about 50 pounds, one beautiful blue eye, she is so loving and her job is to come and give you a lot of love.” To see more photos of Jodie, click here.
RADAR paid $288 toward the heartworm treatment costs for Jodie.
