On February 2nd, Groundhog Day, it wasn’t his shadow that Jordan was seeing, but someone from animal control! This stray was picked-up and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. The 70-pound Golden Retriever mix was thought to be a two to three-year-old female. However, a later vet evaluation determined that Jordan was at least eight years old and a male! One thing that was not in doubt: he had heartworms.
When Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Jordan on February 6th, the only thing standing in the way was the cost of his heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR to request our help. We agreed, and Jordan got his treatment done on March 6th.
“Jordan is stunning with his fluffy chocolate jacket and gorgeous eyes,” we were told, “but he does not let that go to his head. He is all tail wags and kisses! He does well with all dogs and humans of all ages. He’s gentle, sweet and graced by his natural beauty. Jordan is calm and has a pretty laid-back approach to life.” Click here to view more photos of Jordan.
RADAR paid all of Jordan’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $354.
