Hubba hubba, it’s Bubba! Estimated to be five to six years old, this Labrador Retriever mix was brought to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina as a stray on March 20th. Bubba quickly impressed the intake staff by nicely sitting on command and then offering his paw for a shake when asked! A great dog like Bubba would typically be quickly adopted or taken by a rescue. But he was a larger dog, a black dog and heartworm positive.
On April 22nd, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania offered to take Bubba, but only if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately requested our help. We agreed to assist, and Bubba was safe! His heartworm treatment took place on April 25th.
We were told this about Bubba: “He’s handsome and has brains to boot! He’s an exceptionally bright fellow who’s eager to give you a big ol’ southern hug and maybe even a fast kiss, so watch out! Bubba is a happy, wagging-tailed guy, He’s a great choice for a family with kids and other dogs.” To see more photos of Bubba, click here.
RADAR paid all $310 of the heartworm treatment costs for Bubba.
UPDATE! All funds for Bubba have been raised! Thank you!
