It was almost as if Lucky was jinxed by his name as no luck was coming his way. His first bout of bad luck was on July 17th, when his owner surrendered him to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. His ears were raw from suspected untreated fly bites. More bad luck came his way when he tested heartworm positive. After being on the urgent list for over three weeks and the shelter super full, he was a strong candidate to be put down.
Finally, on November 9th, Lucky had some long-overdue good luck. Caring for Creatures in Virginia offered to take him if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our help. We agreed and Lucky received his heartworm treatment on December 5th.
Susan told us this about Lucky: “He is a sweet yet shy boy, and will happily wag his tail. He would make a great addition to an active family or someone looking for a companion to take along for hiking or jogging. Everyone who has met him describes him as a great dog, so ask yourself, could this be your Lucky day? The day he finds his forever home will certainly be his Lucky day!” To see more photos of Lucky, click here.
RADAR paid all $371 of the heartworm treatment costs for Lucky.
