Down on his luck, Dover was in need of a four-leaf clover! One to two years old, and weighing in at 30 pounds, Dover ended up as a stray at the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on December 21st. The shelter listed him as “mixed breed,” so your guess is as good as ours! As if being at the shelter was not unlucky enough, Dover tested positive for heartworms, which greatly limited his ability to get adopted or rescued.
Mary Lou Seymour with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program was like Lady Luck to Dover. She was determined to find a rescue for him. And that’s just what she did! On January 4th, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut agreed to take Dover. The only thing still needed to provide Dover with his four-leaf clover of luck was funding for his heartworm treatment. Mary Lou requested our assistance and we agreed to help.
On January 6th, Dover received his heartworm treatment. December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On, told us this about Dover: “OMG, this dog is active! It takes everything to keep him in line. He’s full-on forward. And when I firmly redirect him, he pouts! But he is sweet and friendly.” To see more photos of Dover, click here.
RADAR paid all $307 of the heartworm treatment costs for Dover.
UPDATE! All funds for Dover have been raised! Thank you!
