Little Lucy, a marvelous mixture of Corgi and Labrador Retriever, arrived as a stray to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on June 20th. A dainty three-year-old, she was gentle, with short legs and a black coat. Testing positive for heartworms and having black fur were two barriers in her way of attracting a rescue. Black-furred dogs don’t photograph well and heartworms are very costly to treat.
To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to rescue Lucy, but needed her heartworms treated first. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for our financial assistance on June 26th. We agreed, and Lucy finished her heartworm treatment a month later, on July 28th
“Lucy is a petite, sweet, low-rider Corgi mix,” Susan told us. “Lucy has a well-balanced, easy-going temperament, so she has been kenneled with another shy dog at the shelter as a companion to make her feel more comfortable. Lucy walks well on leash and greets and mingles with other dogs politely. Lucy would love to have a family of her own where she can enjoy a quiet, relaxed home with another gentle doggie companion.” Be sure to view more photos in Lucy’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Lucy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $226.
UPDATE! All funds for Lucy have been raised! Thank you!
