Knock, knock. Who's there? Izzy! Izzy who? Izzy at the door and you'd better answer it! Luckily, the staff at Edgecombe County Animal Shelter in North Carolina answered the door on May 25th, and Izzy (formerly Patches) started down the road from being a stray to finding safety. Shelter staff noted that Izzy was submissive and a bit head shy indicative of a possible abusive past, but she was soaking up all the love they could give her. Just as things were starting to look up for Izzy, this medium-sized four-year-old Terrier mix found herself on the list of dogs to be euthanized. She had heartworms, making it expensive for a rescue to pull her.
