Unlike Ronald Reagan, this Ragon was not a movie star, governor or president. And, this Ragon is a she, not a he! Ragon, a Bully Breed mix, was surrendered to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee in December of 2014. She was only about 10 months old at the time and was already heartworm positive. She was adopted a few weeks later with the stipulation that she would be treated for heartworms. Ragon was returned to the shelter on October 9th because her owner did not have time for her. Unfortunately, she had not received heartworm treatment and was still heartworm positive.
On October 18th, Kristin Baksa from the shelter asked for RADAR’s assistance with the heartworm treatment costs for Ragon. “This girl will make an excellent family pet,” Kristin told us. But her heartworm status was an obstacle to getting any adopter or rescue interest. We agreed to assist. Ragon’s had her heartworm treatment done on October 21st.
“Ragon is very friendly,” Kristin shared with us. “She loves to play with cats and is friendly with other dogs. She also loves kids and toys. She’s just a happy girl! Ragon prefers a nice comfy bed with her owner beside her.” Click here to view more photos of Ragon.
RADAR paid all of Ragon’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $248.
