Abraham Lincoln was once quoted as saying this: “Whatever you are, be a good one.” This Lincoln, a four- to five-year-old Mountain Dog mix, knows just how to be a good dog. But despite his best efforts, he ended up wandering around lost on the side of a highway. He was picked up on June 10th and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Sadly, in his travels Lincoln ended up with heartworms, which would make it harder for him to be pulled from the shelter.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR on June 19th to see if we could help with Lincoln. If we could assist with the cost of his heartworm treatment, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania could take him in. We agreed to help, and Lincoln received his heartworm treatment on July 21st!
“Lincoln is a small-framed but stately gentleman,” Susan told us. “He has low to medium energy, walks well on leash, and meets other dogs very politely. Lincoln welcomes attention from any new person. While Lincoln mingles nicely with other dogs, he is not big on romping and playing. He would be great in a home where he could get attention, leisurely leash walks, and lots of quality time with his person.” Be sure to view more photos in Lincoln’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Lincoln’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $243.
UPDATE! All funds for Lincoln have been raised! Thank you!
