Midas, a three-year-old Spaniel mix, might not have the golden touch, but he has a heart of gold! Midas arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on March 27th when he was brought in by animal control as a stray. He was quick to make new friends at the shelter due to his sweet and gentle nature, but because he was heartworm positive, his chances of finding a forever family were lessened.
All hope was not lost though, because Peppertree Rescue in New York expressed interest in pulling Midas from the shelter, provided that his heartworm treatment was taken care of first. On June 13th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR to see if we could help, and we agreed! Midas got his treatment on July 16th.
“He had a bit of a shy nature when he first arrived, but he has become more social since then, and he has tested well with a wide variety of dogs of all sizes,” we were told. “He enjoys laying calmly to get lots of love and attention but is never pushy or demanding.” Click here to view more photos of Midas.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Midas, which totaled $371.
