Last week, the lonesome dog who was stranded at King’s Point was finally rescued and is now in need of a loving home.
The dog, who is a 1-2 year old blue heeler, was spotted in isolation on the island for around three or more weeks, according to Kacie Lindsey of the City of Vicksburg Animal Shelter. Concerned citizens posted about the dog on social media, and others commented that they’d seen the dog and had been ‘tossing him some food’, but no one stated that they had reported the dog to authorities who could help.
Last week, a cruise ship sent a rescue boat over to the island where he was finally retrieved. He was brought to the Animal Shelter where he currently awaits adoption. Lindsey stated, “he’s timid but sweet and terrified of cats. He’s thin, but other than that (he) seems healthy.”
The staff has taken to calling the sweet pup ‘Robinson Crusoe’.
He isn’t currently microchipped and he’ll need a little bit of T.L.C., but he has a sweet personality and will be very happy to find his forever family. There are several dogs and cats at the City Shelter who are in need of safe homes. One can visit the shelter during regular business hours of the week and welcome a new family member into their hearts while also saving a life.
