Oh, the love of a Hound, plus the love of a Great Dane, and all in one! This 80-pound gentle giant is truly that. The two-year-old Lewis had been roaming the streets of a neighborhood for over a month before he was temporarily taken in by a kind family. Unable to keep him, the family took him to the Darlington County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on December 14th. Unfortunately, not only was Lewis large, but he also tested positive for heartworms, making him less attractive to potential adopters and rescues.
As soon as they learning about Lewis, Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont approached RADAR for help with his heartworm treatment so that they could take him. If we could help, Lewis could make his way to Vermont on the next transport. We agreed to help. Lewis was on his to Vermont on January 6th! His heartworm treatment took place on February 14th and 15th.
“He is social, friendly and engaging,” we learned from the rescue. “He loves attention and the company of other people and canine friends. He has good house manners and is learning leash skills and recall. He’s great with kids and is gentle in nature. His ideal home is one that has plenty of room for this guy to spread out and stretch his legs, and a family that enjoys spending time in the company of a handsome fella that adores his people!” Click here to view more photos of Lewis.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Lewis, which totaled $250.
