Border Collies love sheepdog trials. Logan is a three-year-old Border Collie mix who faced a different trial. First, he was surrendered by his owner to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on July 30th. He was in poor condition and his coat had multiple mats of hair gummed up with pine sap. Then, after losing his little spot under the pine tree that he called home, he was remanded to the shelter’s death row without any trial. His crime? He tested positive for heartworms and could not be adopted to the public.
Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program is a good shepherd who can’t stand to lose a single animal. She began networking Logan on August 8th. On August 14th, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut wanted to pull Logan but they could not afford the cost of the heartworm treatment. On August 22nd Mary Lou asked RADAR for assistance, and we agreed to help. Logan was safe with Dog Star Rescue on August 24th. He had his heartworm treatment on September 21st.
December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner in The Heart Beat Goes On program, says that Logan is a very nice boy who deserves a better life than he had. Logan was house-trained after just a few days of trial and error. He loves belly rubs and back scratches. And oh boy, we can’t wait to see what he does with a Frisbee!

RADAR paid $300 towards Logan’s heartworm treatment costs.
