Rescue for Roadie


Update Jan. 7: Jill and Ken took Roadie home; they report that although he is slowly making adjustments, they adore him and will do what is necessary to make him feel right at home. 

Roadie was rescued by Evangeline’s granddaughter, when he was hit by a car and left to die in the road. He has been with Evangeline for four years since, very protective and very distressed by her illness.

Evangeline passed away over the weekend and her children are hoping to find a new home for Roadie as they all have to return to their own homes out of state and country.

Roadie is a mixed breed, weighing about 22 pounds. He is neutered and up to date on his shots. He warms up quickly to new visitors. Roadie has been the only animal in his home but the daughter noted that when put together with her two dogs, he got along nicely. He is a dog that bonds closely.

Roadie would do well in a home by himself or with other dogs but it is unclear as to how he would react to cats and children.

Can you give Roadie a new home or help us find a new home for him? Roadie currently lives in Fort Myers and is eager to meet you.  Please ask for details on meeting Roadie at your convenience.

Hope can help pay for the initial vet needs, grooming, and start up supplies. If interested, please contact Colette at 985-7728.
