If the Oreo is “Milk’s Favorite Cookie,” this Oreo can be someone’s favorite dog! He’s a big, friendly four-year-old Hound Retriever Bully mix who loves to play. He used to live and play with a little boy, but his owners said he got “too big” and the boy became scared to play with him. So on January 22nd, Oreo got stuck in a kennel at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina instead of in a loving family home. To make things even worse, it turned out he was heartworm positive. With all the strikes against him, he ended up in the shelter for a very long time.
Oreo was running out of time, but Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to us when Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania said they would welcome him if RADAR was able to fund his heartworm treatment. We agreed, and Oreo was saved! He had his heartworm treatment on June 6th.
At 63 pounds, Oreo doesn’t really know how big he is, so he’s better off playing with dogs his own size. He probably shouldn’t be around cats because they are just too exciting. Oreo loves people and wants to say hi to everyone. He would love a yard to run around in and play with toys and kids. To see more photos of Oreo, click here.
RADAR paid all $322 of the heartworm treatment costs for Oreo.
