Bruce is no brute! This easygoing and affectionate three- to five-year-old Shepherd mix was brought into the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 28th with two other dogs, Natasha and Jenny, after their family was evicted from their home. Bruce didn’t seem to mind life at the shelter, but there was something big that was setting him back from moving on: He was heartworm positive.
On April 17th, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, reached out to us to see if we could help with Bruce. If we could assist with the costs of his heartworm treatment, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania would be able to pull him from the shelter. We agreed to help, and he was safe! Bruce got his split (and costly) heartworm treatments on May 21st and June 25th.
Folks at the shelter said that Bruce is an affectionate guy who likes to get attention through his silly antics, and he appreciates snuggling. He loves everyone he meets, and he’s been known to help even the wariest feel comfortable in his presence. He’s also a big fan of belly rubs! To see more photos of Bruce, click here.
RADAR paid all $444 of the heartworm treatment costs for Bruce.
