Seeing spots where he has nots! Donald was desperately hoping that he could be a firefighter dog when he showed up as a stray at the fire station, but alas that job is reserved for Dalmatians. However, this two-year-old, 47-pound Bully Breed enjoyed a ride with the firefighters in their fire truck to the Darlington County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on May 25th. As Donald hopped out of the truck and happily greeted the shelter staff and other animals, folks were hopeful that this would be just a quick pit stop for him and he would be quickly adopted. But Donald tested positive for heartworms during intake and his quick pit stop turned into several months at the shelter.
One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania agreed to pull Donald if he could get his heartworm treatment covered. Susan Blakeney with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue recognized what a great opportunity this was for the wannabe Dalmatian and contacted RADAR on September 15th for assistance with Donald’s heartworm treatment. We agreed to to help, and Donald received his heartworm treatment on September 20th.
While Donald does not have spots, he is sporting a beautiful light-colored brindle coat and is a very handsome boy. In addition to his looks, Donald is very loving and has excellent manners. He enjoys exchanging hugs with his people and can’t wait to show his affection. He likes getting out in the world to explore with his people, whether it is on a leash or in a fire truck!

RADAR paid all $290 of the heartworm treatment costs for Donald.
