Daria, a three- to four-year-old Boxer-Bully Breed mix from Darlington has a long tale lasting almost two years, so read on! Daria first arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina in July 2018. The sheriff had seized Daria and her five puppies due to unlivable conditions. Daria’s puppies found new homes quickly. Then Daria got a rescue commitment, went to a foster home and was treated for heartworms.
Unfortunately, Daria had a scuffle over food with the foster’s dog, and was deemed as not being good with other dogs. Not only did Daria have to be placed in a new foster home, but because of the incident she lost her rescue. So she was living in limbo with her new foster since then.
Fast forward to Daria in 2020. On April 28th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue asked RADAR for our help. Daria was heartworm-free but her pull fees (including vetting and spaying) needed to be covered. Caring For Creatures in Virginia would find Daria that seemingly elusive forever home but needed assistance with the costs of getting her off to rescue. We agreed to help and Daria was soon on her way.
Daria’s shelter foster dad said just one look from her makes it clear how much she loves being around people. He describes Daria as a wonderful, extremely gentle dog. She’s housetrained and loves going for walks. Talk about smart, Daria knows when it’s time to go for a walk and she sits patiently to wait and have her leash attached. She is a well-behaved girl who would be a good fit for an active home and she benefits from regular exercise. Daria’s favorite thing to do is be around people, but she is also friendly with other dogs who are friendly to her. She also has a laidback side to her personality and would love to be your couch companion. Daria is ready to start the exciting process of interviewing for her new job as a much loved family member. Be sure to view more photos in Daria’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Daria’s pull fees, including her vaccinations, testing and spay costs, which totaled $228.
