If you’ve ever known a Beagle, you know they are merry and fun-loving dogs. That describes two-year-old Lonnie perfectly. But they also follow their noses, and maybe that’s how he lost his way. He arrived as a stray on June 13th at the Kershaw County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Although this handsome boy is full of life, he also was full of heartworms.
Stefanie McElveen of Kershaw County Humane Society reached out to RADAR for assistance with Lonnie’s heartworm treatment, and we agreed to help. Rescue for North Bay Beagles in California quickly committed to taking Lonnie into their program. After his heartworm treatment on July 27th, he recuperated under the watchful eye of his temporary foster in South Carolina before heading off to the West Coast!
Lonnie’s foster mom said, “Lonnie is a loving and free spirit. He loves to play rough, just like the boys. He loves to roll around in the yard. He gets along with everyone and also loves toys! He is full of joy!” Sounds like this happy boy will be able to fit into a wonderful family home! To see more photos of Lonnie, click here.
RADAR paid all $228 of the heartworm treatment costs for Lonnie.
