Moby may be just 45 pounds, but his heart is the size of a whale’s! Somewhere between one and two years old, this Bully Breed mix ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on April 10th when he was turned in as a stray. It didn’t take long for this big, brawny boy to impress the folks at the shelter with his affectionate personality. Unfortunately, Moby needed some help in order to be rescued or adopted. He was heartworm positive, and ended up on the shelter’s urgent list.
On July 9th, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, requested our assistance for Moby. After nearly three months at the shelter, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania offered to take him, if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. We agreed to help, which secured his rescue placement! He received his treatment on July 17th.
After Susan met Moby in May at the shelter, this could have been his diary entry: “I discovered on my walk today that wonderful things can happen close to the ground, like finding a human lap to call my own or a nice person that I can give hugs to and get very cuddly with! I was a happy boy as I confidently exited my kennel area and headed out to meet new doggy friends in the front field area. I was polite and moderately interested in meeting the other dogs and did a nice job in saying hello to them. I’m a guy who loves attention, has a touch of playfulness and can be rather kissy and affectionate on a first date! Certainly I’m not a delicate flower as I am solid and strong, but I do have a wonderfully soft and sensitive side that I think you’ll enjoy getting to know. If I had the pick of new homes, more sturdy kids would make me smile and another dog would be OK as well. Since I enjoy going and doing and have a little energy to spare, I think regular walks will be a plus to help me look and feel my best!” To see more photos of Moby, click here.
RADAR paid all $336 of the heartworm treatment costs for Moby.
