Jett was named because of his beautiful jet black coat. This two-year-old German Shepherd mix ended up as a stray at the Sumter County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on January 1st. Jett was underweight and unneutered. He quickly became a shelter favorite with his friendly disposition but one major issue was holding Jett back from starting a new life in 2019: he was heartworm positive.
On January 9th, Cathy Leinert, the founder of Cathy’s Rottie Rescue, Rehab & Sanctuary in Connecticut contacted us about Jett. He had pledges for his neutering and vaccines, but the rescue needed assistance with his costly heartworm treatment. We agreed to help, and Jett was pulled from the shelter the same day! Jett’s heartworm treatment was completed on January 22nd and 23rd.
Jett is not only handsome, but he is also playful and eager to please. He made his way north to Connecticut on February 16th. He was a good boy in boarding but is eager to transition to a good foster home and learn how to play in the snow! Jett is a GREAT dog. He can jump 4 feet straight up in the air from a standstill! He may have a career in flyball or frisbee or agility! Click here to view more photos of Jett.
RADAR paid all of Jett’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $375.
