Charlie Chaplin was once quoted as saying this: “Nothing is permanent in this wicked world – not even our troubles.” Thankfully for this five-year-old Lab-Bully Breed mix named Charlie, there’s some truth to that! He was brought in as a stray to the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in rural Bamberg County in South Carolina on December 27th. The big scar on his back, most likely a burn or scrape from trying to get under a fence, seemed like evidence that Charlie was just trying to be free of his troubles. Now that he’d made it to the shelter, he just wanted to find a place to call home. Sadly, being a Bully Breed and testing heartworm positive meant that the odds were against him.
On February 19th, Ruthie Rish at MAMAS reached out to RADAR to see if we could assist in the cost of Charlie’s heartworm treatment. “This is Charlie’s chance,” she said when she told us his story. Pregnant Dog and All Breed Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in taking him, provided that he would be treated. We agreed to assist, and he was safe! Charlie got his treatment on February 26th.
Charlie is known as being a well-rounded and sweet boy. He is calm and well-mannered, he gets along with everyone he meets, and he knows commands and is eager to please. “All in all, just a wonderful family dog in need of a wonderful family,” folks at the rescue said.

RADAR paid all of Charlie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $270.
