If this dog were a Dane, he would be Alexander the Great Dane! But he’s not, so he’s Alexander the Great Mix! And what a mix this one year old is. Perhaps part Shepherd? Alexander was found as a stray by animal control and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on January 3rd. He had some good luck and some bad luck. The good luck was that almost immediately a temporary foster was found. The bad luck was that he was heartworm positive.
Thanks to some great photos of Alexander by his foster folks and networking by the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue volunteers, some more good luck unfolded. On February 11th, Home At Last Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Alexander if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, asked if we could assist. We agreed at once, and Alexander was safe!
Alexander received his heartworm treatment on February 11th. We learned this about Alexander from Susan: “He is a gentle and loving companion, and so anxious to please people. While he likes to play, he seems content to spend his time just hanging out, going for rides or walks. He is wonderful on a leash. Alexander gets along very well with children, and has a gentle touch with them. He does great with his foster family’s dog and cat, and has charmed the entire family. Alexander will be a loyal companion!” Click here to view more photos of Alexander.
RADAR paid for all Alexander’s heartworm treatment costs totaling $264.
