It’s a miracle this 2-year-old beagle is still alive.

Found in a shelter in Whitesville, North Carolina, Boscoe had heartworms so bad they weren’t sure he would survive the treatment.

It’s not clear how the 30 lb. dog got there, but Boscoe’s foster parents, Amber and Cory, fought hard for him and cared for him through rough medical treatments until it all ended in success. It took 6 months for the pooch to get healthy enough to finally travel to Pet Match for adoption.

That’s when Pam Knichel and Christine Farrell of Pet Match Rescue, outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, contacted the Pilot.dog Foundation about delivering Boscoe to them several states away. Steve Rhode, the pilot for the non-profit group, flew with his wife to pick up Boscoe in Lumberton, just two more of the many people who worked together to save the adorable dog.

“Corey brought him to us at the airport and you could tell it was really hard for him to give up Boscoe, he’s such a good dog, but they already had two other fosters and two dogs of their own. Corey gave the hound a big hug and a kiss and they said goodbye in a touching moment.”

After they were up in the air, Boscoe settled in to snuggle on the lap of Steve’s wife, Pam, who is the group’s logistical manager and dog handler.


“He liked being under the blanket and at times he’d put his head in Pam’s jacket so you couldn’t see him at all,” Steve told Good News Network. “He was such a sweet boy, despite his hard life.”

Landing in Pennsylvania the couple finally got to meet the Pet Match Rescue team in person.

“It’s so great to finally put a face to someone you’ve gotten to know but have never personally met.”

The Rhodes couple wished the pooch a wonderful and happy life and flew back to their home airport in Raleigh, North Carolina, knowing Boscoe was safe–and ready for adoption in Latrobe.

”It was a long day, but so happy we could be a part of taking this beagle to his last chance at a wonderful life.”
