Hi, it’s me, Jenna! For nearly two long months I was living in limbo at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina, where I arrived as a stray on June 24th. Nobody seemed interested in me. I don’t know why. I’m about three years old, a Flat-Coated Retriever mix, and a beautiful girl at that, if I must say so myself! Some folks say that because of my black coat, I was more invisible at the shelter. I also found out that I had heartworms. And that only made matters worse for me.

Then, on August 22nd, came some promising news. The rescue Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia was interested in taking me! But there was one big catch: the cost of my heartworm treatment had to be covered. Of course, I had no money, and no one else seemed to have any to spare for me either. Much to my surprise a very nice lady named Susan Blakeney with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue asked a group called RADAR to help me. And they did! I had my nasty heartworm treatment on September 13th.

Let me tell you a little bit more about me. I am a very loyal and devoted girl, who will stick to my person like glue! I can get startled easily, so a calmer home would be best, and without small children. While I get along with other balanced and polite dogs, I’d really rather hang out with my person. If you enjoy a quiet lifestyle and would like a faithful, attentive companion to curl up at your feet on movie night or for coffee on the porch, then I may be your girl!

RADAR paid all of Jenna’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $247.
