Haus is the German word for house. And this Haus, who came from a bad house, is looking for more than just a house; he’s looking for a forever home. Two to three years old, Haus is a Terrier mix who arrived on March 17th at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Haus, along with another dog and two cats, was surrendered by his owners. In this case, that was a good thing since the animals had been neglected. Haus had a horribly painful bulging left eye due to glaucoma, for which he was treated immediately. He was also full of heartworms.
On March 29th, To Love a Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania offered to take Haus if he could first get his heartworm treatment done. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, asked for our help, and we agreed at once. Haus had his first heartworm treatment done on April 29th, and final treatment on May 28th.
We were told this about Haus: “He was shell-shocked at the shelter. He was purely petrified in the kennel he was sharing with four to five other dogs. However, out in the play yard with his intake buddy, he was able to relax and let his real personality shine. Haus is playful and bouncy, and he loves to interact with other dogs. A nice, smaller-sized boy, he would love a calmer home environment!” To view more photos of Haus, click here.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Haus, which totaled $218.
