“This dog needs to be saved! Roger that!” A two to three-year-old Beagle mix, Roger was found as a stray on a rural road on January 11th and taken to the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. Poor Roger had two strikes against him — he tested heartworm positive and was yet another Hound dog in a high-kill rural shelter.
On January 9th, Sampson County Friends For Animals in North Carolina reached out to RADAR for help with Roger. Just like many rural areas, there’s an abundance of Hounds. To encourage a rescue to take Roger, we provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment costs. K-9 Lifesavers Dog Rescue in Virginia stepped up to take Roger! He received his heartworm treatment February 17th.
Roger’s foster family during his heartworm treatment reported that he was a delight! He was wonderful around the children, did not mind the cats and enjoyed the company of their two other dogs. He enjoyed car rides, was an easy walker on a leash and enjoyed walks. Roger has a delightful baritone Beagle bay and will talk to you! However, he’s actually a more quiet and mellow Beagle.

RADAR paid all of Roger’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $184.
UPDATE! Roger has been adopted!
