With one brown eye and one blue eye, Keyu’s tale is sad enough to have him singing “Don’t It Make My Brown Eye Blue!” This three-year old Siberian Husky arrived on July 24th at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. Although Keyu came to the shelter as a stray and was named Blake, someone at the shelter recognized the dog to be Keyu and knew the owners. When they called his name, he responded immediately. Keyu’s owners were contacted, but they never came for him. So there he was, stuck at the shelter with his life hanging in the balance. Testing heartworm positive only added to his woes.
On August 13th, in response to a request to help Keyu, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. On September 8th, Half-Way Home Canine Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Keyu! The next day he was safe and sound with the rescue. Keyu had his heartworm treatment done on September 30th.
We were told this about Keyu: “He is such a great Husky! As sweet as he is, he doesn’t care for cats or small dogs, and loves to chase chickens! He adjusted to his new foster life quite well. Just after leaving the shelter he was treated to a bath and grooming at a pet spa! As for his name, we have no idea what Keyu means!” Click here to view more photos of Keyu.
RADAR paid $250 towards Keyu’s heartworm treatment costs.
