Since “Danny Boy” turned out to be a female, we now have “Danni Girl!” This three to four-year-old brindled Dachshund mix arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on June 30th. It is not known how or why Danni ended up at the shelter. Her paperwork even mistakenly listed her as a male with the name of Danny! Not only was she at risk for being in an overcrowded rural shelter, but Danni was also heartworm positive and had a cleft lip.
Independence Day for Danni was indeed on July 4th. That day RADAR received a request from Ruff House Rescue in New York. If we could assist with Danni’s heartworm treatment costs, they would take her. We agreed and she was safe! Danni received her heartworm treatments on August 25 and October 3rd.
We were told this about Danni: “She is a spunky little girl with a wonderful disposition. She is so friendly, and full of love and kisses. Danni loves belly rubs and going for walks! And as for her cleft lip, in person it is actually kind of cute, and doesn’t bother her at all. The cleft lip is purely cosmetic, so no surgery needed! She can eat, drink, give kisses…no problems!” Click here to see more photos of Danni.
RADAR paid all $237 of Danni’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! Danni has been adopted!
UPDATE! All funds for Danni have been raised! Thank you!
