We’ve got Georgia on our mind! And this two-year-old Southern Belle is not just any hound dog; she’s a Berner Laufhund dog! Or she’s at least a mix of the breed that traces its origins to Switzerland as the Bernese Hound dog, and is known for its distinctive tri-colored coat.
Georgia was a stray who arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on October 18th. However, she did not arrive alone; she also had a litter of pups! While all of her pups found homes, Georgia, despite her sweet and gentle disposition, languished behind.
Finally, Georgia got a rescue offer from Caring for Creatures in Virginia: if her initial vetting costs could be covered, they would take her! Susan Blakeney, a volunteer with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, contacted RADAR for assistance, and we agreed.

Not only was Georgia’s initial vetting and spaying just $67, but she tested heartworm negative as well! Georgia will soon be making her way from South Carolina to Virginia!
RADAR paid all of Georgia’s $67 initial vetting and spaying costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Georgia have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Georgia has been adopted!
