Johnson’s tale is long although his tail is the appropriate size for a miniature Labrador Retriever mix! He arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina as a stray on October 2nd… 2018! He was afraid when he entered the shelter, spending time hiding in his igloo, but blossomed with a foster for the shelter. However, his foster unexpectedly left town and contacted the shelter in late 2019 to take Johnson back. Johnson had supposedly been on heartworm preventive but tested heartworm positive. Would Johnson now get his chance at a heartworm-free life and forever home?
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for RADAR’s help on December 3rd. Almost Home Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania wished to find Johnson a home, if his heartworms were treated. We committed to Johnson, and he completed his heartworm treatment on January 7th, 2020!
We were told that “Johnson is a sweet two- to three-year-old miniature Lab mix who weighs about 35 pounds. This sweetheart will be anyone’s best friend for a belly rub. He loves other dogs and children of all ages. His favorite things are going on walks and snuggling up on the couch. Johnson is crate trained, housebroken and will make a lovely addition to any home.” Be sure to view more photos in Johnson’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $220 of the heartworm treatment costs for Johnson.
UPDATE! All funds for Johnson have been raised! Thank you!
