Hi, I’m Maddox! I’m a two-year-old Lab mix who ended up at the Scotland County Humane Society shelter in North Carolina on November 8th. I had a home before, and folks at the shelter thought that maybe someone would pick me up due to the collar I had on, but no one came to reclaim me. I knew then that my best bet was for a rescue or an adopter to save me, so I did everything I could to show how awesome I am! I made lots of new friends, even cats. But I had one big problem: I was heartworm positive.
Little did I know at the time, but there were some kind folks working behind the scenes to help me. On November 13th, Karen Steers with Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina asked a group called RADAR if they would help with the cost of my heartworm treatment. If so, the rescue would take me. And RADAR did just that! I was able to leave the shelter and live in a comfy foster home. I got my heartworm treatments on January 10th and 11th.
My foster parents say that I am an adorable little munchkin Lab mix and have hilarious little webbed feet! I have never known any creature comforts, but I quickly got used to them in my foster home. I am friendly with dogs and people. While there were no children in my foster home, I did like playing with a neighborhood kid. There was another dog in my foster home who helped to show me the ropes of being a good dog. I worked hard on my training when I stayed with my foster family. To see more photos of me, click here!
RADAR paid all of Maddox’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $236.
UPDATE! Maddox has been adopted!
