With the name Gramms (and sometimes Grammy) you might be expecting a little old lady on her last leg. But this Gramms has a lot of life left in her and plenty of love to give. Seven-year-old Gramms is just about the sweetest, most unassuming tiny Beagle mix you could ever meet. She arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on July 6th. Like so many Darlington dogs, Gramms tested heartworm positive. Special help was going to be needed to save Gramms.
On July 30th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue and a volunteer with Caring for Creatures in Virginia, contacted us with a special request regarding Gramms. Caring for Creatures would take Gramms if her heartworm treatment could be provided. We agreed. Gramms received her heartworm treatment on September 3rd. Caring for Creatures renamed her Lily Belle.
“Gramms adores other dogs!” Susan told us. “She runs right over to the dogs she meets, large or small, and starts giving them kisses. She’s very submissive with other dogs and people, if Gramms encounters a dog who does not appreciate her advances, she just drops to the ground and rolls over in front of them. She has a playful side, and she enjoys a game of tug or a wrestling match as much as the next dog. Gramms is a quiet, polite girl who would love to find a kind-hearted family with at least one other dog to spend the best years of her life.” Click here to view more photos of Gramms.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Gramms, which totaled $143.
