Myrtle was rescued on the day before her scheduled euthanasia! This petite two-year-old Blue Heeler-Beagle mix had arrived as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on March 27th. Sadly tested heartworm positive. The rural shelter was full and Myrtle’s chances of getting out of the shelter were not good: heartworms are expensive to treat, so who would adopt or rescue her?

On April 3rd, RescueConnect in North Carolina contacted RADAR about Myrtle. If we would help with her heartworm treatment costs, the rescue would commit to pull her. We agreed to assist Myrtle the very same day. She had her heartworms treated on May 9th.

Myrtle only weighs thirty pounds. She is described as a sweet girl who loves to take walks, get treats and wiggles uncontrollably when she is happy. She enjoys napping in a bed. She loves being close to her person. Myrtle likes other dogs and is an all-around happy gal. When staying with a temporary foster, Myrtle immediately sought out the foster’s teenage son’s room and promptly fell asleep on his bed! Click here to view more photos of Myrtle.

RADAR paid all of Myrtle’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $263.
