The country singer Ronnie Milsap wrote a song about the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, “Smoky Mountain Rain.” This Milsap, a Mountain Cur-Hound mix, was found exploring in Cades Cove, a historical settlement in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This cute two-year-old dog arrived at the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on April 3rd. He is thought to be an abandoned hunting dog. As is true of many hunting dogs, Milsap was heartworm positive, lessening his chances for adoption or rescue.
On April 13th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator asked RADAR for assistance with Milsap’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to help this sweet guy out, and he completed his heartworm treatment on April 22nd and 23rd.
Milsap loves people! He also enjoys the company of other dogs. As with most hunting dogs, he is greatly appreciative of his bed in his foster home. He is on the small size at 29 pounds. Milsap is hoping for a rescue or adoptive home to write the rest of his history as a happily-ever-after tale! To see more photos of Milsap, click here.
RADAR paid all $308 of the heartworm treatment costs for Milsap.
UPDATE! All funds for Milsap have been raised! Thank you!
