Joy’s name fits her perfectly, being the shy but sweet girl that she is. A two to four-year-old Yorkie mix, Joy was surrendered to the Duplin County Animal Services in North Carolina on June 15th with three of her family members. Joy and her three companions were in need of some tender loving care. Their fur was matted to the point of needing to be shaved, and they also had bad ear infections. Unfortunately, Joy, Bolt and Penny tested positive for heartworm.
On June 16th, just a day after their arrival at the shelter, Ruby’s Misfits Animal Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR for help with Joy, Penny and Bolt. If we could provide assistance with the cost of heartworm treatment, they could take Joy and her family. We agreed, and Joy received her treatment on June 28th.
Joy is a shy girl, and she enjoys the simple things in life. The rescue said this about her: “It takes a little bit of patience to get her to warm up, but once she does she likes her evening walks when everything is nice and quiet. She likes to be a couch potato and watch TV with you. She likes to hide her toys in her crate when no one is watching! She’s had some adjusting to do, but despite her quiet demeanor, she is a resilient pup.” Click here to view more photos of Joy.
RADAR paid all $167 of the heartworm treatment costs for Joy.
