Presenting Wilbur: the dog, the problem and the solution.

The dog. Wilbur is a one-year-old Bloodhound mix who was described to us as being flat-out awesome! He’s such a good boy, so sweet, easy-going and pretty well-behaved. He’s pretty calm and quiet in his kennel, rides like a pro in the car, is well-mannered and friendly to everyone he meets. Click here to view more photos of Wilbur.

The problem. Wilbur and another large male dog arrived as strays at the Pocahontas County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on July 14th. A week or so later their owner reclaimed the other dog, but surrendered Wilbur because they lived along a trail and Wilbur didn’t like bicycles. Unfortunately, Wilbur’s chances of being rescued or adopted were hampered by his need for entropion surgery for both of his eyes.

The Solution. RADAR, of course! De Anna Lynn and her Advocates for Shelter Animals of Pocahontas Co., WV (ASAP), sought our assistance. We agreed, and he had his vetting, neutering and entropion surgery done on August 12th. “I love him so much,” De Anna said. “I wish I could adopt him myself. Wilbur is so awesome!”

RADAR paid all of Wilbur’s vetting, neutering and entropion surgery costs, which totaled $282.
