Hello! My name is Mr. Peabody! I’m an amazing little boy who has had a few minor bumps along the road. I’m about two years old and a Labrador Retriever mix. I was found wandering as a homeless stray in early May. Next thing you know, I was in the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. While getting food and shelter was great, this was no place to call home. Just to make my life really miserable, I was diagnosed with mange. At least it wasn’t the contagious kind. I also learned I had heartworms. Just great.
Little did I know that folks were busy behind the scenes trying to help me. On May 5th, a nice lady named Gretchen Kozen, who tries to help save dogs at this shelter, got in touch with RADAR, an organization that helps dogs like me. RADAR offered to help with the cost of my heartworm treatment so that a rescue would take me. A few days later, Ruby’s Misfits Animal Rescue in North Carolina decided to take me! I had my nasty heartworm treatment on May 24th and 25th.
My foster mommy says I’m special and will need medicine to help me get better from my heartworms and mange. My foster mommy scratches all my itches for me and gives me lots of baths to help me get better. I love to run and play, but mostly I love to lay with people and cuddle on the couch. My kitty brother doesn’t like to play with me but that doesn’t stop me from trying to love on him. I have a big heart and loads of love to give! Click here to look at more photos of me!
RADAR paid $250 toward Mr. Peabody’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Tiny have been raised! Thank you!
