While the movie “Finding Dory” is about Dory’s epic adventure to find her parents, in this case, it was more like the epic adventure of finding Dory a rescue! On June 11th, Dory was found as a stray roaming the streets with her two pups. The family was taken to the Chesterfield County Animal Services shelter in South Carolina. A three to four-year-old Bully Breed mix, Dory had very bad sores on the back of her neck. It’s tough enough to find a rescue for a Bully Breed mix with pups, but Dory was also heartworm positive.
On June 13th, the shelter requested RADAR’s help for Dory (known as Paz at the shelter). We provided an offer to assist with Dory’s heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. On June 16th, Dory and her pups received a rescue commitment from South of the Bully Rescue in North Carolina! Her heartworm treatment took place on August 11th and 12th.
“Dory is a giant love bug!” her foster said. “She loves to chew her Nylabones and play with her foster sister. She has made great strides in training and now knows several commands. She’s food motivated, so she is easy and willing to train! Dory loves to be outside, but loves to be with her people even more. She is good with people and kids, and dogs with slow introductions.” To see more photos of Dory, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Dory.
