Buster could no longer muster up any enthusiasm for the hunting life, so the owner of this two-year-old Beagle mix took him to the shelter. This small- to medium-sized dog was surrendered to the Raleigh County Humane Society shelter in West Virginia on January 31st. Buster’s life hadn’t been that great up until that moment. He had lived in a pen outside and was longing for affection. Buster wanted a better life but his heartworm positive status stood in the way of him getting a new home, as heartworms are expensive to treat. Would someone help Buster bust out of the shelter?
Julia Altman, of Greenmore Farm Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania, contacted RADAR on February 14th. She asked if RADAR could help with Buster’s heartworm treatment costs so that the rescue could find him a good home. We agreed to help, and Buster had his back-to-back heartworm treatments on February 22nd and 23rd.
Buster is soaking up all the care and attention he is receiving at the rescue. He is friendly with other dogs, cats and good with people, including children. He has a medium-energy level and loves sniffing various smells as a true Beagle does! His leash manners are excellent and he loves laying his head in your hands for scratches and petting. He even likes getting baths! Be sure to view more photos in Buster’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $310 of the heartworm treatment costs for Buster.
UPDATE! Buster has been adopted!
