Want a dog who’s touchy-feely? Then meet Teely. Really! About two years old, this Australian Cattle Dog mix arrived at the Sampson County shelter in North Carolina on October 10th. Week after week, Teely had no adopter or rescue interest. It didn’t help that she was heartworm positive.
With her situation becoming more desperate, on November 29th, RADAR provided an offer to assist with Teely’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take her. Juliet’s House Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Teely on December 9th! The next day she had her initial vetting and spaying done. On December 18th she received her heartworm treatment.
We were told this about Teely: “She is a super sweet and friendly dog. She just loves attention, and will eagerly roll over for a belly rub! She gets along great with other dogs and children. She is a nice girl, and not too big either. Someone needs to ‘herdy’ up and adopt her!” To view more photos of Teely, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards Teely’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Teely have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Teely has been adopted!
