Bubbles’ breed mix is described as part Labrador Retriever and part Blue Heeler, so we’ll call her a Labraheeler! Whatever her breed mix, it’s been a long journey for the approximately two-year-old Bubbles. She was surrendered by her owner way back on May 31st to the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina. For two months Bubbles had no adopter or rescue interest, in large part because she was heartworm positive.
The shelter staff was thrilled when, on August 1st, My Dog House Rescue in South Carolina expressed interest in taking Bubbles. There was just one catch: the rescue needed her heartworm treatment costs covered. RADAR’s help was requested and we agreed. But then began another long wait for Bubbles. The heartworm treatment drug was on backorder for many months. Finally, on December 19th and 20th, Bubbles had her heartworm treatment done.
The shelter shared this with us about Bubbles: “She is aptly named! She’s a very sweet and friendly girl. She will sit for treats. She is very gentle. Bubbles is very affectionate and does well with other dogs. She loves to be outside and roll in the grass. She is a wonderful girl!” Click here to view more photos of Bubbles.
RADAR paid $250 towards Bubbles’ heartworm treatment costs.
