Lizzie can make you dizzy watching her romp and play with other dogs! A one-year-old Bully Breed-Labrador Retriever mix, she arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina as a stray on April 24th. While the shelter staff nursed this very thin gal back to a healthy weight, there wasn’t much they could do for Lizzie’s heartworm positive status. Curing Lizzie of heartworms would require more extensive and expensive treatment than the shelter was able to provide. With no interest from rescues or adopters, Lizzie found herself on the urgent list.
Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to find a good home for Lizzie, but first her heartworms would need to be treated. On July 13th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society, asked RADAR if we would cover Lizzie’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed, and Lizzie finished her heartworm treatment on July 30th.
Susan told us all about Miss Lizzie: “She is a fun-loving girl who gets along great with other dogs, both male and female. She is laid back with a constantly wagging tail. Getting love from people is her very favorite thing. She has been so even-tempered around other dogs that she has earned the label ‘bombproof,’ meaning nothing phases her. Lizzie is the type of dog who will make her forever family or person wonder what they ever did without her. She’s the total package of looks, temperament and fun, so don’t pass her up, she’s too good to miss!” Click here to view more photos of Lizzie.
RADAR paid all of Lizzie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $255.
