Jeffrey crossed a lot of state lines in his journey to a rescue in the state of Vermont. Like all dogs, Jeffrey was born in a state of grace. Around the age of two or three, Jeffrey entered a state of shock when he was abandoned by his owner on July 1st to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. When Jeffrey was found to be heartworm positive, he entered a state of uncertainty: he had limited time to get adopted or pulled by a rescue before he could be put to sleep, which could happen any time after September 2nd.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, did not want to see Jeffrey in a state of crisis. On August 30th Susan asked us for help. We offered to assist with the cost of Jeffrey’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take him. Jeffrey was delivered from the state of limbo on September 6th when the Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont decided to take him! He had his heartworm treatment on September 16th.
Jeffrey knows trucks! When the photographer’s helper walked Jeffrey to his truck to get a water bottle and doggie treats, Jeffrey hopped right up in the front seat as if to say, “Hey, I remember this! Let’s go for a ride!!” This lovely Pit Bull-Hound mix is a dream to walk on a leash, and certainly seems to have been someone’s beloved pet. Sounds like a state-of-the-art dog to us!

RADAR paid all of Jeffrey’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $272.
