This Little (relatively speaking) Boy Blue is a Blue Heeler in a blue bandanna, which is almost enough blue to have him singing “Don’t it make my brown eyes blue!” Two to three years old, Blue is an Australian Cattle Dog mix who arrived on May 13th at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. His owner was moving, so Blue was surrendered to the shelter. Bad enough to lose his home, but Blue risked losing his life as well. With the shelter overflowing, and as a black dog who was heartworm positive, it was not surprising to see Blue on the shelter’s “Put To Sleep” list for June 20th.
On June 18th, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania offered to take Blue! However, there was just one catch: Blue needed to get his heartworm treatment done and paid. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our assistance and we immediately agreed to cover the cost. Blue received his heartworm treatment on July 8th.
Susan had this to share with us about Blue: “He is quietly affectionate, and happy to just sit and survey his surroundings. His striking black and dappled markings and his slender frame give him a unique appearance. His silky soft fur invites petting. He is calm and polite, and walks nicely on a leash. Blue is good with children and dogs. However, he likes to chase cats!” To view more photos of Blue, click here.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Blue, totaling $229.
