Bebo, From Hopeless to a Home

His name was Big Boy in the WV dog pound. Our volunteers changed his name to Bebo. Bebo came to us with Darla and Selena. The county in which this dog pound is located has such an incredible dog fighting problem, that the pound will not allow the public to adopt a pit bull. They are either turned over to a legitimate rescue or euthanized.

“The Paws Squad” is a rescue group in this county that tries to get the dogs in the pound into rescue organizations. They had Bebo tested for heartworm disease and he was positive. They did fund raising and got Bebo his first heartworm shot before he left the pound. Bebo was tested again in February and he is still heartworm positive. Angel Ridge Animal Rescue will see that Bebo continues his heartworm treatment by our veterinarian.

Shortly after Bebo arrived at our rescue, a mom and daughter from Imperial met Bebo and took him home to be a part of their family. They are planning daily walks, jogging, swimming and dog park outings. He has adjusted wonderfully to his new home.
