Why was Griffin snifflin’? Because all he wanted was a forever home, and for a while, it seemed like he’d never find it. This one and a half-year-old Staffordshire Terrier mix was found as a stray in Denmark, South Carolina, by a nice man who took Griffin to his home for the night, and then to the veterinarian the next morning. Griffin followed him around everywhere, and although he wanted to keep him, he already had enough dogs of his own. So, on November 26th, Griffin arrived at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County in South Carolina. Poor Griffin had demodectic mange, which left him with missing hair and inflammation, and he was heartworm positive.
Ruthie Rish with MAMAS contacted RADAR regarding Griffin on January 12th. “We’ve treated him for his mange and had him neutered,” Ruthie told us, “but we still need to get his heartworm treatment done. He is being such a good boy, just sitting quietly.” We agreed to help, and he received his heartworm treatment on January 22nd.
“Griffin is an incredibly sweet boy!” Ruthie said. “He’s not demanding or obnoxious in any way, but politely waits his turn for someone to notice him. He enjoys relaxing in his dog house while at the shelter, or lying in any small patch of sunshine, going for walks when someone has time to take him, but most of all, just having someone give him some love. He comes to life when I visit him in his kennel, and I think he’s going to be the most fabulous addition to someone’s family!” Click here to view more photos of Griffin.
RADAR paid all of Griffin’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $180.
