Why the name Wyatt? Well just wait and we’ll tell you why it’s Wyatt! This three-year old Labrador Retriever mix was found on the side of a road by a boy named Wyatt! The boy told his mother and they managed to capture the dog and take him to the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina April 7th. The shelter staff decided to name the dog Wyatt in honor of the boy who found and saved him. But Wyatt had another hurdle to face: he was heartworm positive.
Crate Escape Rescue, a small family-run rescue in New York, was asked if they would take Wyatt. On April 12th the rescue requested our assistance with the heartworm treatment costs for Wyatt. If we could help, they would take him. We agreed and Wyatt was safe! He left the shelter on April 15th for his transport to the rescue.
Wyatt received his heartworm treatment on April 23rd and 24th. “He’s very social and loves to be around people and other dogs,” his foster told us. “He’s extremely loyal. Wyatt walks well on a leash and is eager to please. He knows basic commands, so I think he could learn more advanced commands as well.” To view more photos of Wyatt, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Wyatt.
