We bring you Bruce! Two years old and a Boykin Spaniel mix, he was surrendered by his owner to the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on May 14th. As if being at the shelter was not unlucky enough, Bruce tested positive for heartworms, which greatly limited his ability to be adopted or rescued.

Mary Lou Seymour with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program went to battle for Bruce, and there would be no truce until Bruce was safe. On May 30th, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut agreed to take him. The only thing standing in the way was funding for his heartworm treatment. Mary Lou requested our assistance and we agreed to help. He had his heartworm treatment done on June 1st and 2nd.

December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On, told us this about Bruce: “What a cutie pie! I don’t know why he was surrendered. He’s got it all: the right size, cute looks, and a happy-go-lucky nature (but not too happy-go-lucky). He’s potty trained. He has all the aces!” To see more photos of Bruce, click here.

RADAR paid all $291 of the heartworm treatment costs for Bruce.

UPDATE! All funds for Bruce have been raised! Thank you!
