Milly had a hilly road of obstacles to climb on her road to safety. This stunning, brindle-coated Pitbull mix arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina as a stray on November 16th. A two- to three-year-old gal, she was very mild-mannered and sweet. Unfortunately, Milly was heartworm positive, which was a big obstacle to attracting adopters and rescues. In mid-January, she was placed on the shelter’s urgent list.

On January 25th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue asked for RADAR’s help. One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania wanted to rescue Milly if her heartworm treatment costs were taken care of. Although we had many dogs to help, we could not say no to assisting Milly. She required the more costly split heartworm treatment that took place on February 5th and March 5th.

“Everyone LOVES Milly!” we were told. “She is a good-natured, polite and tolerant girl. She behaves in a ladylike manner and charms everyone she encounters. She was so calm that she was used as a tester dog with other shelter dogs. Milly meets male and female dogs equally well.” Click here to view more photos of Milly.

RADAR paid all of Milly’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $450.
