BD? What kind of a name is that? Well, there is an explantation. When the request when out for help with this dog, there was no name or gender known. A uni-sex name seemed elusive, so this Pointer mix became BD for Bird Dog! On December 8th, one to three-year-old BD, arrived as a stray dog at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. With BD testing heartworm positive, county regulations prohibited the shelter from adopting him out. So the only way out alive for BD required a rescue commitment.
On December 12th, Mary Lou Seymour with the Heart Beat Goes On program, which works tirelessly to help save Aiken’s heartworm positive dogs, requested RADAR’s help for BD. We immediately provided an offer to assist with BD’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take him. On December 14th, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut agreed to take BD!
Pam, a volunteer who transported BD to the vet for his heartworm treatment, had this to report: “BD traveled very well. He’s a nice, energetic young man who just needs some training. He loves to play with other dogs!” BD received his heartworm treatment on December 18th. To see more photos of BD, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for BD.
