Is there anything sweeter than a chocolate brownie? Our Browney is a chocolate-coated delight! She was surrendered to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on August 31st by her owner. She is a two-year-old Labrador Retriever-Shepherd mix who was heartworm positive. She enchanted everyone at the shelter, but being heartworm positive was a formidable obstacle to her getting adopted or rescued. Browney was put on the “put to sleep” list for October 23rd. She could be euthanized any time after that date.
Susan Blakeney is RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue. When no rescue had shown any interest in Browney after several weeks, and her time was critically running out, RADAR made an offer on October 19th to cover Browney’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to pull her. Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont committed to taking Browney on October 20th, just days before her “put to sleep” date. Browney had her heartworm treatment on November 3rd.
Browney is mellow but playful, and at her young age is already an old pro at leash-walking. She will be a wonderful companion to someone who enjoys long walks. She loves other dogs and has excellent cat manners (just walks away and leaves them alone). She delights in taking walks, and says “thank you” with an entertaining dance routine. Browney is low maintenance and loves children. So, who doesn’t love a Browney? Click here to view more photos of Browney.
RADAR paid all of Browney’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $281.
