How can you say “no no” to Bobo? This three-year-old Shepherd-Lab mix arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on August 9th. Bobo was surrendered to the shelter by his last owner because he had heartworms, Lyme disease and Ehrlichia. A little scared by his new surroundings, all Bobo wanted was for someone to save him. Sadly, being a black dog and having several health issues weren’t doing him any favors in finding a forever home.
Thankfully, there was still hope! To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to pull Bobo from the shelter, but they still needed help with the cost of his heartworm treatment. So on October 23rd, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, contacted RADAR to see if we could help. We agreed to assist, and Bobo was safe! He received his heartworm treatment on October 29th.
Folks at the shelter told us that Bobo is a well-mannered, methodical kind of guy with a “very chill spirit.” While he is sometimes a little shy at first, in time he gladly opens up to friendly humans and dogs. “We greatly enjoyed our time with Bobo,” they told us. “The longer we had him out, the more he opened up and before we knew it, he was leisurely strolling around our enclosed exercise pen and enjoying some freedom and fresh scents of grass.” Click here to view more photos of Bobo.
RADAR paid all of Bobo’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $311.
UPDATE! All funds for Bobo have been raised! Thank you!
