Hi, it’s me, Mufasa! I’m going to tell you my true story. If I didn’t tell the truth, you might be tempted to call me “The Lyin’ King!” I’m about two years old and a mix of Mastiff and Bully Breed. Last September I thought my life had finally taken a turn for the better when I was adopted from the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. However, my new owners did not provide me with even the most basic care I needed. In mid-January I was returned to the shelter. Not only was I emaciated, but I had heartworms as well. What happened to my second chance?
Just when I was about to give up, some snazzy photos of me caught the eyes of the folks at Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania. While they wanted to take me, going from being emaciated to weighing nearly 90 pounds meant that the cost of my necessary heartworm treatment would be very costly. Behind the scenes, Susan Blakeney, a nice lady with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue knew just what to do. She asked a group called RADAR for help. And, thanks to their supporters, they agreed to help me. Hooray! Now I have my real second chance!
My nasty heartworm treatment took place on March 28th. Folks at the shelter described me as, “laid-back, handsome and sweet!” I love people and other dogs. I would be the perfect companion for someone who isn’t looking to go on hiking trails everyday. However, I am very content taking a stroll around the park and doing so at your pace, or just simply lounging on the couch! To see more photos of me, click here!
RADAR paid all of Mufasa’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $476.
