Just like with Bill Clinton, this Clinton also had issues with his heart. In the case of canine Clinton, he was heartworm positive. Five to six years old and a Rat Terrier mix, Clinton arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on October 3rd. He was brought to the shelter by animal control. Clinton had two lucky breaks. His first was that he was able to go to a foster home shortly after being at the shelter. But his ultimate fate still hinged on finding a rescue or adopter.
Clinton’s second lucky break came just in time for Christmas. The Annapolis Dog Rescue in Maryland expressed interest in taking Clinton. However, they needed his heartworm treatment costs to be covered. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, wasted no time in contacting us on December 23rd. We immediately agreed, and Clinton was safe! He had his heartworm treatment done on January 28th.
Susan had this to tell us about Clinton: “He’s very, very sociable, friendly and outgoing! He is a super sweet fellow looking for his niche in life. Not pushy or showy, but even tempered and pleasant. He walks well on a leash, is house trained and gets along with other dogs and cats. Clinton’s a sensitive dog, and needs to know that he is wanted and loved. He has an old, but healed, injury which left him with a crooked lower jaw and one of his lower canine teeth sticking out at an angle. It gives him quite a comical expression when he is looking at you!” To view more photos of Clinton, click here.
RADAR paid all $219 of Clinton’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! Clinton has been adopted!
