Boone, a two-year old Treeing Walker Coonhound, wandered to a home where two other dogs lived. Boone liked both of his new friends, a female and a male dog. The female dog, however, didn’t like either male dog, so the owner brought the two males, Boone and Fuzzy, to the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County in South Carolina on January 16th. Boone’s new friend Fuzzy was rescued and went to a loving home. Sadly, Boone was heartworm positive, hurting his chances to go to a rescue, as heartworm positive dogs cannot be transported to some states until a dog tests heartworm negative.
Ruthie Rish with MAMAS reached out to RADAR regarding Boone on January 18th. Wet Nose Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in taking him if his heartworm treatment could be provided. We agreed to help at once. Boone was able to get his heartworm treatment the very next day, January 19th!
“Boone is such a sweet dog,” Ruthie said. “He gets along with everybody he’s met so far. He’s a smaller Hound boy, and so very pretty and loving.” To see more photos of Boone, click here.
RADAR paid all $270 of the heartworm treatment costs for Boone.
UPDATE! All funds for Boone have been raised! Thank you!
