Sarah’s personality is the perfect mix of sweet and sassy. She’s a 14-year-old Bully Breed mix, but don’t be fooled by this gal’s age—she’s still got a whole lot of love and spunk to give! Unfortunately, Sarah’s previous owners moved and couldn’t keep her, so she ended up at their mother’s house. This situation just wasn’t working, and Sarah needed a place to go before she was surrendered to the local Surry County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. Adding to the problems—Sarah’s previous owners said that she’d never been taken to the vet. Being a senior gal, she didn’t just need a new home, she also needed medical attention.
On June 20th, Mayberry 4 Paws in North Carolina, an organization that helps find rescues for Surry County dogs, requested RADAR’s help for Sarah. On the same day, RADAR reached out to Destiny Shell, who runs Dogs of Destiny, the Virginia chapter of the Lake Charles Pit Bull Rescue. Destiny agreed to take her in, provided that the cost of Sarah’s senior vetting could be covered. RADAR agreed to assist, and by June 26th, Sarah was safe! After transport, Sarah went in for her full senior exam on August 1st.
Now, Sarah’s getting the right kind of care that she needs to live a happy, comfortable life. Destiny said this about her: “She likes to be loved on, and while she doesn’t like to get up on the bed, she loves to lay by it and be petted until she falls asleep. She likes to be close and likes to love and give love. She also really enjoys her belly rubs.” To see more photos of Sarah, click here.
RADAR paid all $414 of the initial vetting and test costs for Sarah.

UPDATE Sarah crossed the Rainbow Bridge on September 23, 2017. Destiny shared this in memory of Sarah, “I will miss your raspy little bark as you tell me to move faster to get your dinner, or give you belly rubs; or the way you bounced up and down when you were happy to see me and ready for loving and belly rubs (even if it meant you’d some times fall over when your back legs couldn’t handle the excitement). Your oh so gentle kisses and the way you loved to be close at all times.” Rest in Peace, Sarah.
