Drake is no duck, but enjoys a watery environment on a hot day! This three-year-old Boxer-Bully Breed mix with a good-looking brindle coat, arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on March 10th. His owner had kept Drake for one year but it was moving time and so Drake went to the shelter. Drake’s sweetness and happiness impressed the shelter staff and volunteers, but his heartworm positive state didn’t impress any rescues and so Drake waited in the shelter for three months.
One Life To Live Rescue and Adoption, located in Pennsylvania, was interested in finding Drake a new home but needed his heartworms to be treated first. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for RADAR’s help on June 7th and we responded right away with a “yes!” Drake was able to get his back-to-back heartworm treatments on June 8th and 9th.
Susan ‘interviewed’ Drake and he had this to say about himself: “I’m a fun, happy, friendly fellow who can find good times no matter where I am! I like meeting and playing with other dogs and having an active human to throw a ball. I’m a pretty unflappable, even-keel guy who is accepting of all. I had a great time with some visiting teenagers at the shelter. I proudly showed off how I will nicely sit and give a paw. I don’t mind adding that I’m housebroken too. If an attentive, loving, ready to go and do kind of dog is on your ‘must have’ list, please check me out!” Be sure to view more photos in Drake’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Drake’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $325.
UPDATE! All funds for Drake have been raised! Thank you!
