Little Lady is just that: a little lady! She’s a six-year-old Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen, and she’s been down a difficult road in life. When she was surrendered to the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on August 2nd, it was clear that she hadn’t been treated the way she deserved. Folks at the shelter learned that she had been kept outside in a cage, where she developed a flea allergy, and had an abrasion on her neck, probably due to a collar. As if that wasn’t enough, she was also heartworm positive.
On August 10th, Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program asked RADAR if we could help Little Lady. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut was interested in taking her, but needed funding for treating her heartworms. RADAR agreed to assist, and Little Lady received her treatment on August 14th!
Mary Lou described Little Lady as being “very, very sweet and super friendly, but quiet.” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program, cared for Little Lady following her heartworm treatment. “This little thing is a train wreck!” December said. “She has a severe skin infection and an eye irritation. I’m hoping a month of diet and baths will help change things for her.” Click here to view more photos of Little Lady.
RADAR paid all of Little Lady’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $276.
UPDATE! Little Lady has been adopted!
