Lagoon may have wished for a cooling lagoon in the hot, humid climate of North Carolina. A five-year-old Bully Breed mix, he arrived as a stray at the Rocky Mount shelter in Nash County on June 5th. The shelter has a very short timeline for animals that come into the facility, and Lagoon was in danger, being an older dog, a Bully Breed mix and marked for rescue only. Who would step up to save Lagoon and give him a second chance?
Suruluna Animal Rescue of New York urgently pulled Lagoon on June 11th because he faced being euthanized imminently. As soon as they pulled him they found out that he was not only heartworm positive but also had a heart murmur. Anna Cilento of the rescue immediately requested RADAR’s help. Due to Lagoon’s unusual circumstances, we committed to him. He had tests and x-rays on July 24th, and back-to-back heartworm treatments on July 25th and 26th.
“Lagoon is super sweet and mellow,” we were told. “He is a real good boy with big soulful eyes. He loves people and dogs, and is low-key and very easy to please. Despite his health issues, he has never lost his good spirits.” Be sure to view more photos in Lagoon’s gallery.
RADAR paid $311 toward Lagoon’s testing, x-ray and heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! Lagoon has been adopted!
