Freddy was oh so ready for his luck to change! This two-year-old red-furred Bully Breed mix arrived at the North Augusta Animal Control facility in Aiken County South Carolina on May 31st. A friendly stray, who needed a second chance. It was unknown if Freddy was heartworm positive as the North Augusta facility is not able to heartworm test. Who would step-up to help this great dog?
Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates reached out to RADAR on June 19th. Shelter Animals Advocates wanted to save Freddy, but would need help with heartworm treatment costs, if he indeed tested positive. RADAR agreed to help to seal the deal for Freddy’s rescue. Freddy was tested the same day, and as expected in this hot and humid area, he tested heartworm positive. Freddy completed his heartworm treatment on June 24th.
Freddy is very friendly with people and a playful fellow. He’s still a little rough around the edges we are told, but is learning quickly. He walks well on a leash. Shelter Animals Advocates says he is a nice kid who just needs a little training on manners to become a great dog. Be sure to view more photos in Freddy’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Freddy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $334.
UPDATE! All funds for Freddy have been raised! Thank you!
