No offense, but we’re not about to tackle why this dog is named after the former offensive tackle with the Carolina Panthers football team! Approximately two to three years old and a Labrador Retriever mix, Jordan Gross arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on June 5th. He was brought to the shelter by animal control. Poor Jordan Gross had been all but forgotten in the shelter’s intake building, where he got to hang out for nearly two weeks. He was very timid and heartworm positive, so he had no adopter or rescue interest. He ended up on the shelter’s euthanasia list for July 23rd.
In an effort to save Jordan Gross, on July 22nd, RADAR provided an assistance offer to cover his heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. The next day, and just in time, One Life to Live Pet Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania agreed to take Jordan Gross! He had his heartworm treatment done on August 27th.
We were told this about Jordan Gross: “Just add water and let the fun begin! He really loves water. He likes to swim in it, wade through it and play crocodile in it! We think he’d dress up as a crocodile for Halloween just to slink around in big mud puddles! He’s well mannered and a sweet fellow. He loves getting belly rubs in the tall grass and sitting near folks. He nicely shared his kennel space with another mid-sized dog. His tail is always keeping a steady beat. He’s such a great dog!” Click here to see more photos of Jordan Gross.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Jordan Gross, totaling $271.
