Langston is a love bug who has been way too lonely for far too long. On March 14th of 2016, Langston arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Because he had a toenail that was ripped off, he was treated and sent to a private boarding facility to recover. Sadly, Langston was somewhat forgotten and left in limbo. Despite repeated efforts in more recent months to help find a rescue or adopter for this four to five-year-old mixed breed, he just sat and sat and sat. Adding to his woes, he was heartworm positive.
When Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania noticed a newly-posted video of Langston on March 5th, it was love at first sight! If his costly heartworm treatment could be covered, they would take him. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, wasted no time in asking for our help. We agreed at once and Langston was at long last safe! He received his heartworm treatment on April 5th.
Susan shared these comments about Langston during his time at the shelter: “He loves to be right next to you. He has high endurance and is strong bodied. Overall, he is just a big teddy bear! Langston takes every opportunity to give and get kisses. He would be a perfect companion, and could blend right into any family that already has dogs. He is a very sweet boy who wants a place to call home after waiting for so long!” Click here to view more photos of Langston.
RADAR paid all of Langston’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $427.
