Doc and his six siblings arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 28th. The seven dogs were named for the Seven Dwarfs in the Snow White story. All had short legs so there may have been a Corgi in their heritage. Their owner said they had “too many dogs.” Five of the dogs were heartworm negative and left for rescue. Doc, a three-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, and Sneezy, tested positive for heartworms, making their rescue status shakier.
To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania told Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, that they would like to rescue Doc and Sneezy, but needed their heartworms to be treated before they could enter the rescue. Susan reached out to RADAR on June 28th. We agreed to help both dogs. Doc and Sneezy completed their heartworm treatment on July 22nd.
Susan loves meeting the dogs and gives us great descriptions: “Doc is the perfect size for lap-snuggling! He is affectionate and friendly with everyone he meets. He enjoys leisurely leash walks and greets other dogs politely, ready to play. Doc has medium energy and is easy-going and mild-mannered. Doc would love a family with children who can give him a lot of attention and another kind doggie friend to be his companion.” Be sure to view more photos in Doc’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Doc’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $298.
