When Baby the Bully Breed mix arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on January 7th, it was obvious that she had mothered many babies in the past. No one had taken good care of Baby lately, as she was underweight and had scars on her ears. This two- to three-year-old stray gal had another health problem: she tested heartworm positive. Baby was sweet and looking for love, but as a bully breed there was already prejudice against her, and who would adopt or rescue a heartworm positive dog?
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, sought a rescue for Baby. Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont wanted to take Baby, but she would need to be treated for her heartworms first. Susan asked RADAR to help on April 24th, and we agreed to assist the very same day, smitten by Baby’s sweet face! Baby had her heartworm treatment on May 21st and 22nd.
Baby hasn’t had an easy life but despite that she is sweet, mild-mannered, very loving and affectionate. At the shelter, she enjoyed her time outside, and frolicked and rolled in the grass. She does well on a leash. She is looking forward to someone ‘babying’ her as a treasured pet now that she is healthy. Click here to view more photos of Baby.
RADAR paid all of Baby’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $307.
