Some may say that Abraham is nothin’ but a hound dog, but Abraham is everything and a hound dog! The local animal control brought this 18-month-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter on August 15th. He was looking for a fresh start, but wound up crying with his time running out two months later. Thankfully, Abraham’s luck wasn’t running out, and the Puppy Paws Rescue in Maryland took a liking to him.
Abraham needed some help to get healthy in order to enter the rescue because he tested positive for heartworms. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, Susan Blakeney, reached out to us for help on October 15th. RADAR made an urgent appeal to our supporters on Facebook, and within a few hours all of the needed funds were raised for Abraham (as well as two other dogs). No time was wasted and Abraham had his heartworm treatment on October 16th.
Now Abraham can focus on just being a young happy hound, looking for his forever home with the help of Puppy Paws Rescue. With his striking coat markings and fun-loving, goofy disposition, it shouldn’t take Abraham long. He loves other dogs and people, and enjoys a good run. He will be a great all-around hound dog for some lucky family! To see more photos of Abraham, click here.
RADAR paid $193 of Abraham’s $273 heartworm treatment costs. (The other $80 was provided directly by a Darlington donor.)
