Oh, Drago, what a handsome boy you are! You aren’t a dragon at all, you aren’t even scary once someone gets to know you. Drago is a three-year-old Pit Bull who was found, along with his sister Khaleesi, abandoned on the side of a rural road in Bamberg County, South Carolina, on July 3rd. They stayed there for hours and hours, as if they were just waiting for their owners to pick them up. Eventually they were picked up by animal control and taken to the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter. Both were covered in fleas and Drago had some hair loss and tested heartworm positive. Khaleesi was lucky to be rescued right away, but poor Drago was left behind.
On August 6th, Ruthie Rich with MAMAS contacted RADAR, requesting a grant to help cover Drago’s heartworm treatment, and we agreed. He had his heartworm treatment on August 22nd and was provided with temporary foster care until a rescue could be found. A few weeks later Buffalo Paws and Claws in New York agreed to take Drago and find him his forever home.
The shelter thinks Drago is the perfect ambassador for his breed. “He is quiet, loving, and very laid back with other dogs, both male and female. I really want to try extra hard for this boy,” Ruthie told us, “because he’s such a wonderful example of what Pit Bulls can be.” To see more photos of Drago, click here.
RADAR paid all $270 of the heartworm treatment costs for Drago.
