The name Hershel may mean “deer,” but this time it describes a Bulldog-Pug mix! This two to three-year-old guy arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on November 16th, but he wasn’t alone. His sibling, a one to two-year-old Bulldog-Pub mix named Darryl, came in with him after they were both found as strays. The two of them were heartworm positive, which put them both at risk in the shelter.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR on December 1st to see if we could help Hershel and Darryl. One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania was interested in taking them both, but they still needed to get their heartworm treatment. We couldn’t resist such cute scrunched-up faces, so we agreed to help! Hershel and Darryl both received their treatment on December 19th.
Folks at the shelter voted for Hershel as having the most expressive face! They also said this about him: “A mid-size, brindle-jacketed fellow, Hershel loves laps, asking for belly rubs and simply being close to his human. He is also terrific in meeting new dogs and will seek them out to join in his fun!” To see more photos of Hershel, click here.
RADAR paid all $197 of the heartworm treatment costs for Hershel.
UPDATE! All funds for Hershel have been raised! Thank you!
