We can’t stop harping on about Harper! Blue-eyed Harper is a two to three-year-old Shepherd-Husky mix who arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on March 3rd. The handsome Harper was dubbed “the blue-eyed bombshell” at the shelter! But, as you might guess, Harper had heartworms.

On March 7th, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania saw Harper’s intake photo and it was love at first sight. The rescue wanted to take Harper, but the cost of his heartworm treatment was a major obstacle. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, turned to us for help. We agreed to cover Harper’s heartworm treatment costs, securing his safety! He had his heartworm treatment on April 26th.

“Harper is mesmerizing with his ice-blue eyes, thick dark jacket and super-suave personality.” Susan said. “This extremely polite, mild-mannered fellow will have you at ‘Hello.’ He’s very, very gentle and low key. Doting and loving with people, Harper has perfect manners around other dogs, nicely meeting them and then moving forward to focus on his new human friend.  A huge fan of belly rubs, Harper is happy to hang on the sidelines and watch everyone else put on the show while stoically sitting near his person and wagging his tail with great contentment. Harper is one show-stopping dog!” Click here to view more photos of Harper.

RADAR paid all of Harper’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $252.
