Watch out for Robin Hood, he will steal your heart! Described as sweet, stunning, super-sized and absolutely gorgeous, Robin Hood is thought to be a King Shepherd. He is five years old, weighs 100 pounds, and knows how to use a bow (a play-bow, that is)!
Robin Hood and his brother, King Arthur, were surrendered on January 12th to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. But all his merry men could not save Robin Hood from being put on the euthanasia list for January 17th. German Shepherd lovers began feverishly networking the two brothers in the hopes of getting them out of the small 14-run county shelter before the 17th, but there were no takers.
Veronica Vesligaj of German Shepherd Rescue & Adoptions urgently reached out to RADAR on January 17th. With the shelter closed on the 19th for Martin Luther King Day, Robin Hood and King Arthur would probably be euthanized on the 20th. While her rescue was full and could not take the two brothers, Veronica asked RADAR if we could provide offers on both dogs as incentives for a rescue to take them. We agreed to assist. Southeast German Shepherd Rescue pulled Robin Hood and King Arthur on the 20th when it became clear that there was no other interest in them.
Robin Hood received his initial vetting and neutering on January 21st. While at the vet’s, he stole kisses and belly rubs from everyone he met, presumably to re-distribute to needy dogs! To view more photos of Robin Hood, click here.
RADAR paid all $150 towards Robin Hood’s initial vetting and neutering costs.
