Because Chandler is so alert and attentive, it seems unlikely that Chandler will need a handler! A three-year-old Shepherd mix, Chandler arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on July 23rd. He was brought to the shelter by animal control. Chandler had a number of large ticks in his ears, which made his ears quite sensitive. He was very sad and shy at the shelter, and that was without realizing just how much at risk he was as a larger black dog who was heartworm positive in an overflowing rural shelter. By mid-September, Chandler was on the shelter’s “Put To Sleep” list.
On September 18th, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, contacted us about Chandler. At long last he had rescue interest! American Rescue Foundation of Southeastern Pennsylvania offered to take ChandlerIF his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. We agreed at once, and Chandler was safe! He had his heartworm treatment done on October 7th.
Chandler is fun, footloose and, yes, fancy free!” Susan told us after meeting him to take photos. ” His tail kept a very steady cadence on our walk, and he loved giving me attention almost as much as I enjoyed responding in kind. He was very alert and smart, and responsive to my directives. Chandler is a wonderfully affectionate and playful guy. He nicely shared his space at the shelter with a variety of different dogs during his stay (one of those kennel mates was RADAR-assisted Maddie).” Click here to view more photos of Chandler.
RADAR paid all of Chandler’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $287.
