Some hound dogs won’t hunt, and this bird dog won’t fly! Dimitri is a five-year-old Redtick Coonhound-Pointer mix. He arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on November 5th. And for 11 weeks Dimitri waited and waited at the shelter for someone to take him, not realizing that with each passing week his life was increasingly at risk.
Dimitri was placed on the dreaded PTS (Put To Sleep) list for the week of January 21st. Thanks to the efforts of the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue volunteers, Almost Home Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania, agreed to take Dimitri if his vetting and neutering bill would be paid.
Susan Blakeney, a volunteer with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, turned to RADAR to see if we would cover Dimitri’s bill so that he could be safe at last. We agreed at once!
Dimitri has now had his initial vetting and neutering done. And he tested heartworm negative! His transport to Almost Home Dog Rescue is scheduled for February 9th.
Susan shared this with us about Dimitri: “He’s calm and excellent with other dogs. Dimitri is pretty much an unflappable guy who goes with the flow. He is affectionate and very loving.” Click here to view more photos of Dimitri (taken by Susan).
RADAR has paid all of Dimitri’s initial vetting and neutering bill of $63.
