If Betty were a Cocker Spaniel mix, we could’ve introduced her as a Betty Crocker Spaniel! But Betty’s mix is still an interesting one: Beagle and Chihuahua! About two years old and weighing only 15 pounds, Betty arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on February 27th. Arriving with Betty were her two older pups. While the pups quickly found rescues, sadly, Betty did not. It didn’t help matters that she tested heartworm positive.
On March 31st, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, asked for our assistance to seal the deal for Betty’s rescue. One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania would take Betty if her heartworm treatment costs could be provided. We agreed at once. Betty’s heartworm treatment took place on April 8th.
“Betty is as super sweet and friendly as they come,” Susan told us. “While we had no background history on her, we quickly realized that she was a good mixer and mingler with other dogs, both older and younger, and active and sedate. She has her whole life ahead of her and can’t wait to permanently retire her mommy apron strings and take up her next full time job as a family pet!” Click here to view more photos of Betty.
RADAR paid all of Betty’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $108.
