Bev was among a bevy of at-risk dogs at the shelter, but being black, larger and heartworm positive made her all the more vulnerable. About 18 months old and a Labrador Retriever mix, Bev was surrendered to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on April 28th. The reason for her surrender? Her owners said they had too many dogs. With no rescue or adopter interest, and the shelter overflowing with dogs, Bev was among those subject to being euthanized on June 10th.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, urgently requested our help for Bev on June 10th. She had a last-minute plan to save Bev’s life. If we would cover Bev’s heartworm treatment costs, Susan was fairly certain that Caring for Creatures in Virginia, where Susan is also a volunteer, would take Bev. We immediately agreed, and so did Caring for Creatures! Bev received her heartworm treatments on June 28th.
Bev is friendly, but a bit shy. However, she quickly warms up. Despite her size, she likes laps! She also likes to hang out with other dogs. She is calm and super snuggly. She likes to roll on her back and let the sunshine warm up her body! If you are looking for a gentle, doting dog who is happy to focus on you, Bev is the dog for you!

RADAR paid all of Bev’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $271.
