Hello, my name is Balnar. Don’t ask me what my name means, because even I don’t know! What I can tell you is that I’m a three-year-old Bully Breed mix. On October 17th, I was surrendered by my owner to the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee. I guess I didn’t get along well with other animals, or at least that’s what my owner said about me. Folks at the shelter seemed to like me though, and I loved spending time with them. I got wind of some bad news though. It turned out that I was heartworm positive, and with being a black dog and a Bully Breed, I had three obstacles that stood in front of me finding my forever home.

Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, was working hard to make sure that I overcame those obstacles. She reached out to a wonderful organization called RADAR to see if they could help with the cost of my heartworm treatment, which would bring me another step closer to being rescued or adopted. And thanks to their generous donors, they said they would help, and I got my treatment on December 11th!

I consider myself a simple kind of guy, who really just wants to be part of a loving and caring family. I mostly enjoy being around people, and would surely make a good companion to those who understand me. To see more photos of me, click here!

RADAR paid all of Balnar’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $356.
