Cleopatra is a Great Pyrenees mix, but with the name Cleopatra, maybe her breed is more Great Pyramids than Great Pyrenees! Approximately one year old, Cleopatra was one of 13 dogs found abandoned and locked in a trailer by animal control on January 8th. The dogs were taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Sadly, most of the dogs were extremely shy. Cleopatra, while scared and shy, quickly adjusted up to her new situation. Like so many Darlington dogs, Cleopatra had heartworms.
When Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Cleopatra on January 22nd, the only obstacle was the cost of her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately asked for our help. And we agreed! Cleopatra had her heartworm treatment done on February 20th.
We are told that Cleopatra, while still timid, is sweet and friendly. During her visit to a groomer shortly after her arrival at the shelter, the groomer said Cleopatra quickly bonded with her. They even went for a walk, meeting other dogs and people, with Cleopatra doing great. “She will make someone a great pet,” said the groomer. Click here to view more photos of Cleopatra.
RADAR paid all of Cleopatra’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $320.
