The name Chandler means candlemaker, and no one can hold a candle to Chandler! This one and a half-year-old Retriever-Hound mix ended up at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on July 30th. And while folks at the shelter enjoyed Chandler’s soulful serenades, he couldn’t stay there forever. He needed to find his forever home, but there was one thing holding him back: heartworms.

On August 14th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates in South Carolina and its HeartBeat Goes On program sought our help for Chandler. If we could assist, they would pull him and get his heartworm treatment done so that he would be rescue ready. We agreed and he had his treatment on August 18th. Fortunately, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut came forward to take him.

“Chandler is a nice, young boy,” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program, told us. “He likes to show the song of his people with good ole throaty Hound lyrics!” To see more photos of Chandler, click here.
