Those who have met Chester call him the ‘All-American Dog’ and who are we to disagree? This one- to two-year-old Bully Breed mix was picked up by animal control as a stray and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on July 3rd. A rather snazzy, medium-sized fellow, he nevertheless sat unwanted in the shelter due to his heartworm positive status.
One Life To Live Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to save Chester but would need help with the cost of treating his heartworms. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, turned to us for help on September 28th, We agreed to help him. Chester was able to receive his heartworm treatment on October 16th.
Oh, the accolades for Chester! “His personality is gentle and accepting,” we were told. “He is social and happy and has never met a stranger. He enjoys the company of both humans and dogs. He is great at fetch, riding in cars, exploring new places and walking on a leash. Chester will love a home with kids and other dogs!” Click here to view more photos of Chester.
RADAR paid all of Chester’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $267.
