The name Brody means “ditch,” and this Brody is ready to ditch his old life and find a new one with a great family and lots of belly rubs! This five-year-old Lab mix ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on November 19th with three other dogs named Leo, Mabel, and Esther. Their owner was no longer able to care for them due to health problems, so all of them were surrendered to the shelter. Understandably, the four of them were all scared in the shelter, and it took a little while for them to get used to their new situation. And sadly, Brody was heartworm positive.
When Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Brody on January 11th, the only barrier was the cost of his heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, turned to us for assistance. We agreed, and Brody had his rescue commitment! He had his heartworm treatment done on January 22nd.
“Brody is a very submissive guy,” we were told. “He would love nothing more than a warm comfy couch to curl up on and a person to lie beside. Brody is calm and gentle, and he hopes his forever home is out there looking for a special dog just like him. He’s so sweet and docile and asks nothing more out of life than to be treated kindly and cherished by a loving family.” Click here to view more photos of Brody.
RADAR paid all of Brody’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $236.
